Abstract:The thesis “High-school Students’ Use of Fantasy and Science Fiction Reading for Escapism” encompasses findings connected to adolescence and young adult literature. We present the emotional, cognitive and social characteristics of adolescence. We take a look at the influence that childhood traumas and defense mechanisms may have on adolescents. We also present findings connected to escapism and reading therapy. The genres from the title – fantasy and science fiction - are described, as well as their history. We also described fairytales and folktales. We took a closer look at the Harry Potter book series and the opinion some critics have about its influence on youth, as well as some well-known fairytales children can identify with. In the empirical part, we presented the results of a survey created to examine the reading habits and motivation of high-school students. We found that high-school students’ general satisfaction with life does not greatly influence their choice of reading materials.

Title:Srednješolci in branje fantazijskih in znanstvenofantastičnih knjig zaradi eskapizma
Abstract:Magistrsko delo z naslovom Srednješolci in branje fantazijskih in znanstveno fantastičnih knjig zaradi eskapizma zajema dosedanja spoznanja o adolescenci in književnosti za mlade. Predstavljene so čustvene, kognitivne in družbene značilnosti adolescence. Dotaknemo se tudi vpliva travm v otroštvu ter obrambnih mehanizmov. Delo prav tako dosedanja spoznanja o biblioterapiji in eskapizmu. Opisani sta literarni zvrsti iz naslova, torej fantazija in znanstvena fantastika in njuna zgodovina. Prav tako so opisane ljudske pravljice in bajke. Podrobneje smo pogledali serijo knjig Harry Potter ter nekatera mnenja kritikov o vplivu na mlade, ki jo le-ta ima ter mnoge znane pravljice, s katerimi se mladi poistovetijo. V empiričnem delu smo s pomočjo rezultatov ankete predstavili bralne navade srednješolcev ter njihovo motivacijo za branje. Ugotovili smo, da splošno zadovoljstvo mladih ne igra velike vloge pri izbiri čtiva.
