Today was mostly about other things, but I squeezed in a tiny amount of editing on the article expansion. I’m pretty sure it needs an entirely new section to get it up to the requested word count. So far I don’t have any idea what that new section might be. Right now I have a long introduction outlining what cabins meant in the early nineteenth century, a long analysis section on “Luren,” and a long conclusion called “After Hansen” (hate that subheading, but it’s all I could come up with) that outlines what happens with the cabin motif in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Maybe what I need to do is include an analysis of a second example? But what would it be? Fisherman Anders’s cottage in Amtmandens Døttre? Lieutenant Glahn’s hunter’s cabin in Pan? Isak Sellanraa’s settler’s cabin in Markens Grøde? Ideally it would be something that also uses a cabin allegorically as a locus for a national romance. I suppose Markens Grøde is the closest I’m likely to get to that (albeit a primitivist and anti-modern national romance…). Hmm. I’ll have to give it some more thought.
