Sanja Vrcić-Mataija ; Sveučilište u Zadru - Odjel za nastavničke studeije u Gospiću
The paper establishes typology of Croatian realistic children's novel from 1991-2001, based on the three criteria: the age of the literary character/implicitly reader, the degree of modernity of the form-relevant methods and narrative figure domination. Typological model is based on the interpretation of the corpus of Croatian children’s realistic novel of the nineties, the current studies on the Croatian children’s novel and the model of the Peleš’s novel interpretation. By accepting generic terms: type, subtype and form the components of the children’s novel are defined as a children's novel in the strict sense and a novel for young adults; traditional, modern and post modern novel; character novel, children’s banda novel, family novel and intergenerational novel with its subtypes and forms.
