What does the societal-information look like in the youth literature? : A study of Swedish societal-realistic youth novels 1990-1994 (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine whether youth novels contained information concerning our society. We reviewed youth literature and its history in brief, including its commencement and development from separate boys' and girls' novels to a common youth novel after the Second World War. To obtain a clearer picture and a better understanding of youths, we read non-fiction, such as books, magazines and articles, concerning youth culture, its meaning and content. We decided to review the period 1990-1994 more closely. We therefore set up selection criteria which finally resulted in 56 youth novels. We examined these novels to determine if and/or how they matched the nine preselected areas that we felt were typical for the 1990's. We also compared the youth novels with the yearbooks on youth publish annually by the government. Our results showed that a type of societal information and/or attitude towards our nine preselected areas exists in the youth novels. We also found that, in addition to our nine areas, the youth novels contained 48 other areas, the most common of which was "finding one's own identity". Comparing youth novels and yearbooks, we found that there was a very little accordance between the two. Yearbook articles did not correspond to the content of the youth novels
