Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how a number of 9-10 year old students experience and describe literary characters and how they experience the text’s environment when the description is limited. As I examine this as part of students reading comprehension, I also want to see how they make connections when talking about the current text. By presenting a text for the students where it is not obvious who the narrator is, I have tried to find out how students think when they encounter literary personalities and how they perceive the environment.

Students have been listening to Astrid Lindgren's "The dragon with red eyes" and received the instruction that they should concentrate on the narrator who is also a character in the story. The investigation is based on the student illustrations of the narrator and answers from group discussions.

The theoretical frame is founded on text-to-text connection, text-to-self connection or text-to-world connection. The investigation shows that the text-to-text and text-to-self connection is closest at hand when the children analyze the literary personality. Maybe their own family constellations have affected their analysis, given that 81.2% of girls illustrated the narrator as a girl. When I analyzed how girls and boys experienced the narrator it shows that the girls more so than boys identified the narrator of their own sex. They could very well make connections when talking about the text and had experienced many internal images in terms of the story, the environment and the narrator.
