Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Last spring I did a study where I studied how young girls where being depicted in Swedish novels of 2010. My ambition with this exam is to study how young teenage boys are being depicted in Swedish novels of 2010 and to compare this study and the results with the results from my study last spring. Throughout history we can see that boy’s novels have had the purpose to bring up boys into being adventurous. In the novels of 2010 we can see that boys now are being depicted in another more modern and contemporary way.
From my analysis we can see that all the books have many things in common. One of them is the young boys search for identity and for finding who they really are. They all are struggling with their trust to themselves and their self-confidence.
We can see that all the books show how young boys today are struggling to find the courage to stand up for themselves and their identity.
In my comparison with the results of both of my studies we can see many similarities. Both studies shows young teenagers search for identity and for finding the courage to show how they really are and for standing up for themselves. We can that despite gender the young teenagers are all having the same reflections and feelings.
