The other side of Mr. Midnight: an assessment of gender modelling. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, January 2012, Pages: 140
This research identifies the specifics of the young adult genre and further examines the documented representation of both the young and adult male and female characters in the Mr. Midnight.This study investigates the social and cultural roles and constrains of the main young and adult characters in the series from a Feminist Literary Criticism perspective, revealing ways in which the selected texts interact with issues of gender equality centering on the distinctiveness in the course of events and characters in the eight narratives analysed. Auxiliary to that, this research also recognises and authenticates the manner in which the male and female young adult characters reflect, support and challenge the norms set by their society in the narratives. Study findings reinforce the proposition that the Mr. Midnight series, which is a cultural product, is dependable and consistent in terms of simplicity, importance and genuineness and therefore should be used as a constructive model to reinforce a positive gender relationship amongst adolescents.
