Resumé

Through the analyses of Émile Zola’s Germinal (1885) and Martin Andersen Nexø’s The Great Struggle (1909) the article investigates the strike as a topos in Western literature between 1850 and 1950. The article argues that the strike should be not considered a passive object; something that is merely being portrayed. Rather the strike has an active and formative function in the texts in which it appears, as it generates a distinct literary form – the Strike Novel – that among other things is characterized by a peculiar and ambivalent political outlook. An ambivalence emerging from the strike’s own characteristics as a practical form of political resistance linking the phenomenon closely to the question of how to act politically.
