Adaptionens potentiella didaktiska dimensioner: Att arbeta med Robinson Crusoe som ett klassiskt litterärt verk i gymnasieskolan
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this essay i examine the adaption process of the book Robinson Crusoe (1719) and the movie Robinson Crusoe from 1997. From my findings i will discuss the didactic potential of working with classic literature in a widened textual sense. I aim to answer the following questions:
1. What could be found in the adaption process between text and movie?
2. How can film be used as didactical tool in teaching classical literature in upper secondary school?
The methods i have used in this essay are narrative method which means that you study the story as a whole and it´s parts. In specific I have studied the plot, use of time and the characters. I have found that the characters have been modernized in order to fit in a changed society. Which is also shown is the polarization of the characters´ religion. A women is added to the story which change the cultural context in comparison to the original story. I found several potential didactic dimensions; for example the use of a female character in the movie which can engage a larger audience, different living conditions and the questions of different religions.
