Graphic Novel adaptations of historical novels for children and young adults: (Master thesis)

Χαλαστάνη, Μαρία-Φωτεινή/ Chalastani, Maria-Foteini

My study discusses the methods of rendering a classical historical novel for children and young adults into the narrative and artistic medium of graphic novels (gn). The purpose of the study is to explore the multiple interpretations as well as the intertextual and cross-media techniques of the visual representations in gn-adaptations of renowned historical novels. The adapted works, Secrets of the Swamp and Petros’ War are viewed from the perspective of their historical context and of the semiotic analysis conducted on their visual aspects. Part I discusses the terms related to the study topic such as the historical novel, the graphic novel and their historical context, and presents the historical development of children’s and young adult fiction, as well as that of graphic novels and of transmedia adaptations of literary works across time. Part II starts with the comparative study between the original texts and their adapted versions in terms of the theorization suggested by Genette’s narratology. It then proceeds to a semiotic, ideological and comparative study of the images through an analysis of their structural components.
