"Det kan ju inte vara precis detsamma med en flicka" : Mumindalen ur ett queerperspektiv

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Södertörns högskola/Litteraturvetenskap

Författare: Madelene Wallinder; [2018]

Nyckelord: Tove Jansson; Mumin; Mumintrollet; queer;

Sammanfattning: The essay examines the presence of queer desires and characters in Tove Jansson's books about the Moomins, mainly with a focus on: Finn Family Moomintroll (Trollkarlens hatt, 1948), Moominsummer Madness (Farlig midsommar, 1954) and Tales from Moominvalley (Det osynliga barnet, 1962). These three books are examined one by one and in chronological order, so as to be able to find whether the presence and character of queer representation changes over time. The idea is that this work should fill a gap in the research by exploring norm defying sexuality, gender identity and gender expression, since the books about the Moomins previously have been analyzed through a heteronormative perspective. The result shows that the books frequently feature queer relationships and characters, but also that the nuclear family and heteronormative ideas are maintained and upheld by the Moomin family.
