The Father Figure in the Picture Book : Readings of 6 books from 1959 to today (English)
Abstract [sv]

I detta examensarbete kan du läsa om hur fadersgestalten integreras i barns verklighet samt i dess lekvärld med bilderböcker. Syftet med studien är att belysa hur fadersgestalten framställs i äldre och nya bilderböcker, och om den har ändrats med tiden. Jag har granskat sex böcker ifrån 1959 fram tills idag, varav två stycken har analyserats på djupet. Frågeställningen till arbetet lyder: Hur framställs fadersgestalten i de olika böckerna? Är han närvarande eller frånvarande i barnets verklighet? Studien använder sig av en multimodal utgångspunkt samt stödjer sig på föregående forskning och litteratur för att nå resultatet.

Resultatet av att granska fadergestaltningen i dessa olika böcker är blanda annat att tidningen är en central symbol.  Pappan visas vid flera tillfällen i bilderböckerna sittande med tidningen framför ansiktet. Detta är något som man kan forska vidare på, få svar på hur det kommer sig att så många författare samt illustratörer väljer att gestalta fadern på detta sätt. 

Abstract [en]

In this thesis, you can read about how the father figure is integrated into children’s reality and play world by the way of picture books. The purpose of the study is to illustrate how the father figure is portrayed in old and new picture books, and if it has changed over time. I have examined 6 books from 1959 until the present day on a general level, whereof two pieces have been analysed more in depth. The main questions of this thesis are: How is the father figure portrayed in the different books? Is he present or absent in the child's reality? The study uses a multimodal basis and draws on previous research and literature to reach the result.

The results of examining the father figure in these different books were that the newspaper is a central symbol. The father appears on several occasions in the picture books sitting with the newspaper in front of his face. This is something that you can research further on. Get answers on how is it that so many writers and illustrators choose to portray the father in this way.
