Power games between two or more people embroiled in a love affair is a popular subject in the history of literature; Tolstoy’s 1877 classic Anna Karenina and huge commercial success Fifty Shades of Grey published in 2011 are just two examples. Readers have enjoyed both the dark and the light side of intimacy throughout the ages, and in this conversation, Hamdi Koç and Norwegian author Selma Lønning Aarø will discuss how the subtleties of writing about relationships, love and betrayal differ in the so-called ‘high’ literature and ‘low’ literature.

The talk will have simultaneous English translation.
