Skandynawska książka (nie tylko) dla dzieci w czasach transgresji
AbstractThe article discusses the phenomenon of disappearing readerships and its implication in the form of all-age literature. It starts with a short summary of previous theories on multiple address divided into two categories, depending on either the age or the experience of readers. However, nowadays artists explicitly distance themselves from addressing children and state that their art creates its own audience. The result of this stance is for example the picturebook for adults which here is illustrated by two examples from Scandinavia: Titta Max grav (1991) by Barbro Lindgren and Eva Eriksson, and Maria José (1994) by Erlend Loe and Kim Hiorthøy.The blurring of age groups is accompanied by genre hybridity, which has been exemplified by two books nominated in 2016 for the prestigious Norwegian prize of the Ministry of Culture: Megzilla by Gro Dahle and Kaia Dahle Nyhus, and Mulegutten by Øyvind Torseter; along with the winner of the award—Morkels alfabet by Stian Hole. All of them are cross-genre works, blending elements of both traditional and graphic novels, comics, picturebooks and non-fiction.The conclusion is that we are presumably witnessing the birth of all-literature, perceived as an art which is open to everybody who is attracted by it, without age boundaries and traditional limits, such as paradigms, conventions, or genre affiliation – a literature which is transgressive on many levels: content, form and readerships.
