Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the present importance of liberal education in the Swedish "folkhögskola" by studying its expressions in the teaching of literature and fiction. I have interviewed teachers at four different schools about their opinions of liberal education, literature and cultural heritage, means of instruction, and influence of their students. Liberal education in this thesis is considered as a process. Starting from our own experiences we meet something strange to us and while absorbing this in our experiences we change. But its purpose also is to convey the canon of Western literature. My intention is to study the emphasis of these two poles at the various schools. My conclusion is that the concept "liberal education" or the Swedish word "bildning" is still vividly present in the practical daily teaching at the various schools.
