The Young Adult Novel: Blurring the Borders or No Men¿s Land?

    Project: Research project

    Description

    Developments within the young adult novel since the eighties of the 20th century are described in terms of literary emancipation. The presupposition is that these developments will blur the borders between juvenile literature and adult literature. Two questions are posed: Do the texts themselves justify this presupposition and do they really influence the relation between juvenile literature and adult literature. The answer to the questions requires a comparative analysis of adolescent novels and an analysis of the reception of the genre.
