Opis: The aim of this diploma thesis is to compare the symbolism of dragon in the book and the film How to Train Your Dragon. I explore the symbolic meaning of the creature in different cultures and in literature and then I focus on the presentation of the dragon in the story. The role of the mythological creature is very unconventional and it affects major themes of the story.
I also explore the allegorical aspect of the story and compare the principles of dragon training to the principles of real-life pet training. This comparison helps to gain deeper understanding of the character development of the protagonist.
The story has a lot to offer from the pedagogical point of view, since the audience is very young.Ključne besede: dragon, symbolism, How to Train Your Dragon, allegory, training principles, pedagogical point of viewObjavljeno: 15.02.2016; Ogledov: 637; Prenosov: 76 Celotno besedilo (327,90 KB)
