Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project covers the dimensions “text and sign” and “subjectivity and learning”, and consists of content and structure analysis of the autobiographical novel A tale of love and darkness by the Israeli author Amos Oz. The projects aim is to investigate how an individual (in this case Amos Oz) can construct an identity by using a narrative. The interaction between author, text and reader, and the way it influences identity construction processes, will be discussed, as well as the esthetics and literary aspects and their contribution to what the novel wishes to convey. The project concludes that by composing the novel, Amos Oz goes though a process of reconstruction and redefining his identity. Moreover, the reader himself goes through a similar process; for by close and responsive reading in Oz’ memories and narratives, the reader is given the possibility to reflect on his own identity perception. Furthermore, we conclude that one of the novels main themes is the manifestation of the complexity and richness of life, and the many sidedness of the human experience.
