Developmental Tasks in Literature for Adolescents: Has the Adolescent Female Protagonist Changed?
D'Angelo, Dolores A.
Child Study Journal, v19 n3 p219-38 1989
Context analysis of 10 adolescent novels revealed that the primary female characters of pre-1971 novels attempted only low-level tasks which involved self-concern and peer relationships. The primary female characters in post-1980 novels attempted tasks of practical and abstract skills that involved planning for the future. (BB)
