2008 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This essay concerns representations of celebrated Victorian literary figures in Alan Moore’s graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. The characters under discussion are: Dr. Jekyll, Alan Quatermain, Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man and Mina Harker. Presented is a comparison of these five figures’ portrayals in the graphic novel to their classical selves in the original works of literature. Emphasized is Moore’s conscious incorporation of the characters’ histories and backgrounds into the graphic novel’s storyline. Additionally, this essay examines the extent to which certain League characters deviate from their “original” selves and the Victorian customs of their time.
