Body representation in literature is a fascinating  topic!

For some years (app. 2000-2004) I was head of a research project on the meaning of the body, including Christine Hamm (post.doc.), Lars Rune Waage (PhD student) and Bente Velle Hellang (PhD student). Publications from the project:

Kroppens betydning i norsk litteratur 1800-1900





Den litterære kroppen. Artikler om kropp og tekst fra Edda til i dag.





Much of my later research has also dealt with bodies in literature, for instance

Between Experience and Representation: Intimacy and Identity in Texts by Vita Andersen and Marion Hagen, Scandinavian Studies, Vol 81, 2009.
