En bra bok Några komvuxelevers synpunkter på böcker och läsning

Detta är en Magister-uppsats från Högskolan i Borås/Institutionen Biblioteks- och informationsvetenskap / Bibliotekshögskolan

Sammanfattning: This study is based on 26 essays about A Good Book, written by as many participants inSwedish classes in secondary education for adults. The object is to analyse the students'views on fiction and reading: What books they prefer, but also why and how they read.Objectivity and subjectivity in literary criticism is also discussed.Most favoured author both among men and women is Stephen King. The majority of thebooks mentioned are translated from English. The women also read historical and psychological novels while the men prefer fantasy. The question whether a book is goodor not is in the students' opinion only a matter of taste. They also defend their own lreading against all kinds of literary expertese.Mostly the students read for pleasure, but they also think that fiction can provide usefulinformation e.g. facts about other countries. They like to get deeply involved in thebooks they read and so there is a difference, not only between what books they like toread and what they are asked to read at school, but also between their personal responseto literature and the analytical approach favoured by the educational system.
