A gardener in paradise : An analysis of three picture books who address the subject death and grief (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this picture book analysis is to examine how death and grief are expressed in three analysis objects. In this essay it is discussed, with the support of previous research, whether and how these picture books can be used in education for primary school. Several researchers believe that the picture book is useful as a pedagogical tool for developing empa-thy and for discussing current topics. Therefore, with the help of Nikolajeva’s theories on the hermeneutic circle, I have conducted a picture box analysis. In the picture book analysis, I examined the outer binders of the books, what narrator voice and point of view that is used, how death is portrayed, and how the character's mourning processes are depicted. My results of the analyzes show that death is expressed through paraphrase and mourning processes are expressed in all analysis objects even if it is expressed in different ways. 

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna bilderboksanalys är att granska hur död och sorg uttrycks i tre analysobjekt. I denna uppsats diskuteras det, med stöd av tidigare forskning, om och i så fall hur bilderböckerna kan användas i undervisning för lågstadiet. Flera forskare anser att bilderboken är användbar som ett pedagogiskt verktyg för att utveckla empati och för att diskutera aktuella ämnen. Därför har jag, med hjälp av Nikolajevas teorier angående den hermeneutiska cirkeln, genomfört en bilderboksanalys. I bilderboksanalysen granskade jag böckernas yttre pärmar, vilken berättarröst och synvinkel som används, hur döden skildras samt hur karaktärernas sorgeprocesser skildras. Mitt resultat av analyserna visar att död uttrycks genom omskrivningar och sorgeprocesser uttrycks i samtliga analysobjekt även om det uttrycks på olika sätt.
