Abstract:

Literary Conceptualizations of Growth explores those processes through which
maturation is represented in adolescent literature by examining how concepts
of growth manifest themselves in adolescent literature and by interrogating
how the concept of growth structures scholars’ ability to think about
adolescence. Cognitive literary theory provides the theoretical framework, as
do the related fields of cognitive linguistics and experiential philosophy;
historical constructions of the concept of growth are also examined within the
context of the history of ideas. Cross-cultural literature from the
traditional Bildungsroman to the contemporary Young Adult novel serve as
examples. Literary Conceptualizations of Growth ultimately asserts that human
cognitive structures are responsible for the pervasiveness of growth as both a
metaphor and a narrative pattern in adolescent literature.
