En strukturell resa genom Narnia: En komparativ analys av struktur och genre i C.S Lewis två verk Silvertronen och Hästen och hans pojke

A structural trip through Narnia: A comparative analysis of structure and genre in C.S Lewis two works The Silver Chair and The Horse and His Boy

In this essay I discuss how fiction can be used in Swedish education for younger years in the Swedish subject, to learn about the building blocks of stories and what is unique to the fantasy genre. The core of the essay is an analysis of C.S Lewis two novels The Silver Chair and The Horse and His Boy and how they relate to some of Vladimir Propps 31 functions of structures and some characteristics of the genre fantasy. The purpose of this essay is examine how the two works of C.S Lewis relate to chosen functions, characterises of the genre fantasy and in relation to each other. That and how it can be used in Swedish education to create an interest for fiction and reading. The analysis is built on two parts. Firstly, the two books are introduced and then analysed separately against 10 of Propps functions and described characteristics of the genre fantasy. Secondly, a comparison between the result from the two separate analyses. I find that fiction can be compared to both Propp’s functions and characteristics of the genre fantasy. However, they needed to be interpreted to fit into the definitions of chosen functions. As a result, I found that the fictions by C.S Lewis, Propps functions and elements of the fantasy genre can be used in classrooms to discuss the structure of stories and to teach about genres. I also give some ideas on how to do that.
