« Pour moi, un homme, c'est papa » : représentations de l’amoureux dans la chick lit québécoise

Gervais, Corinne January 2015 (has links)
Depuis près de dix ans, les lectrices québécoises peuvent retrouver une panoplie de romans de chick lit « Made in Québec » sur le marché. Si l'engouement pour ce type de production est important, très peu d'études se sont consacrées à l'observation de ce phénomène en contexte québécois et francophone. L'objectif de cette recherche est de faire la nomenclature des caractéristiques fondatrices des personnages masculins possédant un potentiel amoureux auprès de l'héroïne et étant issus de la chick lit québécoise. En somme, il s'agit de mettre au jour les traits distinctifs de la chick lit québécoise par le truchement des personnages masculins qui constituent une piste d'analyse des plus riches pour y parvenir. Tout d'abord, afin de bien positionner le sous-genre dans le marché du livre, le premier chapitre retrace l'émergence de la chick lit anglo-saxonne et québécoise, en plus de dresser le portrait actuel de l'édition de chick lit au Québec. Dans le but de bien saisir ses composantes et sa structure narrative, les liens de continuité ou de rupture de la chick lit québécoise avec, d'une part, le roman sentimental et, d'autre part, le roman d'apprentissage sont observés dans le premier chapitre. Même si la quête amoureuse de l'héroïne de chick lit possède une importance non négligeable, elle s'accompagne néanmoins d'une véritable quête d'autonomie. Cependant, malgré les ressemblances soulevées entre le roman d'apprentissage et la chick lit, nous croyons que la quête d'autonomie de l'héroïne achoppe à la fin de ces romances modernes, lorsqu'elle trouve enfin le grand amour. Afin de vérifier cette hypothèse, le deuxième chapitre expose les caractéristiques inhérentes à quatre groupes de personnages masculins possédant un potentiel amoureux, soit les anciens amoureux, les amants, les amis et les amoureux. En outre, ce chapitre présente la fonction de ces personnages masculins dans la trame narrative, en plus de faire ressortir les modalités de leur relation avec l’héroïne. Finalement, le troisième chapitre met en lumière les liens unissant le père de l'héroïne et l’amoureux, puisque la recherche pose, a priori, que le père de l'héroïne de chick lit québécoise possède une relation avec sa fille se distinguant de ce qui se retrouve dans les productions anglophones, relation qui ferait du père un véritable modèle amoureux pour la fille.

Have You Met Miss Jones? : Identity Construction of a Chick Lit Heroine

Falk, Towe January 2009 (has links)
Take a random woman in her mid-twenties, with a crazy mother, a lousy job and no sex life, add some insecurity and a lot of alcohol and wrap her up in pink, and congratulations, you have just created your own chick lit heroine.The question is whether a chick lit heroine is this simplistic, or if she carries an important message to the readers. The most important traits in a chick lit novel are the complicated mother-daughter relationship, the career and the love life.Thus, this essay will outline to what extent the postfeminist features are depicted in theidentity of Bridget Jones, as an epitome of later chick lit heroines.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding: The Situation of Writing a Novel / Džeinės Austen Puikybė ir prietarai bei Helenos Fielding Bridžitos Džouns dienoraštis: romano rašymo situacija

Taujanskaitė, Aurelija 31 August 2012 (has links)
The object of the research is Austen’s and Fielding’s situation of writing a novel through their works Pride and Prejudice by Austen and Bridget Jones’s Diary by Fielding. Though, these women authors are representatives of the two different epochs of English literature their novels are frequently taken in parallel. In order to carry out the research, the comparative and feminist criticism methods were applied. The comparative methodology was useful in order to analyze the meanings of similarity or distinction in the novels Pride and Prejudice by Austen and Bridget Jones’s Diary by Fielding, also, to compare two different contexts for writing two novels. / Tyrimo objektas – Džeinės Austen ir Helenos Fielding romano rašymo situacija remiantis jų kūriniais: Austen Puikybė ir prietarai bei Fielding Bridžitos Džouns dienoraštis. Nors autorės yra skirtingų laikotarpių anglų rašytojos, jų kūriniai yra dažnai lyginami.Bakalauro darbe buvo naudojami lyginamosios bei feministinės kritikos metodai. Lyginamasis metodas buvo taikomas ištirti romanų Puikybė ir prietarai ir Bridžitos Džouns dienoraštis panašumo ar savitumo reikšmes, palyginti kūrinių rašymo kontekstus. Kadangi Austen ir Fielding yra moterys rašytojos, feministinės kritikos metodas buvo naudojamas atskleisti moterų literatūros savitumą.

The Image of Writing Women: the Comparative Aspect on Women’s Literature in English / Rašančių moterų įvaizdis: moterų literatūros anglų kalba lyginamasis aspektas

Žemaitytė, Erika 31 August 2012 (has links)
The object of the research is the image of writing women of the two periods which is revealed in novels written by Helen Fielding and Candace Bushnell as well as Virginia Woolf’s essay. In the novels written by the contemporary writers, the The novels written by Candace Bushnell and Helen Fielding reveal the contemporary cosmopolitan female writers. Each of the novels emphasizes sexual equality, freedom of choice and woman’s emancipation. Olivia is a fearless journalist who finds evil traces in every beauty topic that she covers. Moreover, writing is the essential matter for travelling and facing hazardous situations. / Tyrimo tikslas yra atskleisti rašytojų moterų įvaizdį Candacės Bushnell ir Helenos Fielding romanuose ir palyginti jį su Virginijos Woolf pateiktu rašytojų moterų įvaizdžiu esė Savas Kambarys.Postfeministinė literatūros kritika taikyta siekiant apibūdinti moterų rašytojų situaciją dvidešimto amžiaus pradžioje. Feminizmo teorija naudota pabrėžti feminizmo kaip politinio judėjimo svarbą rašytojoms ir įvertinti moterų rašytojų įvaizdžius literatūros kūriniuose.Galima teigti, kad dvidešimtojo amžiaus pradžioje moterys rašytojos rašė literatūrinius kūrinius norėdamos skleisti švietimą tarp skaitytojų bei tuo pačiu praturtėti.

Chick lit i litteraturundervisningen? : - om kritisk läsning inom svenskämnet på gymnasiet

Lindeborg, Hanna January 2011 (has links)
I have with this thesis sought to understand how chick lit could be useful in the classroom in the teaching of Swedish B-course in high school. Based on the model of critical literacy I am arguing that this genre would help to meet the objectives of the policy documents which, among other things, are to critically examine and analyze various types of texts. I have found that some of these texts could be used for analyzing and critically examine the ideological dimensions of texts and cultural heritage by the model of critical literacy, and also as a counterweight to the more traditional teaching of the canonical literature as a literary historical stuff that students should learn. I have also wanted to create a basis for discussions about literature in the classroom based on the chick lit genre. To do this I have, based on three themes and questions from the model of critical literacy, tried to focus on issues that might emerge from the ideological analysis and critical review. The model aims to deconstruct norms of society, and in the work of chick lit, I wanted to show how you could deconstruct norms around gender.
