  Abstract:  Literature, Science, and Univocality. Theory and Praxis. As the characters of novels become unresolved in Modernism, the public turned to (national) literary history and authors’ biographies. The last decades autobiographical elements have invaded all genres and made up new ones. In Norway there has been a pronounced self-conscious shift from fiction of faction (saklitteratur). At the same time there is a pragmatic turn in criticism, focusing on identification with literary characters, authors, and social issues. This article reflects on this trend taking its cue from Rita Felski´s admonition of French Theory, and Tore Rem´s highly praised book on Hamsun´s alleged Nazism. 

Keywords: Literary Theory, deconstruction, biography, Knut Hamsun.
