Faculty: School of Arts and Humanities

Educational Programme: Philology (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 8

Year of Graduation: 2020

The topic of child psychology has always been relevant both for scientific research and for description in fiction. The aim of this study was therefore to identify the role of fiction in the knowledge of the psychology of a future adult and to analyze how the child’s psychology is depicted in literature of different periods. The work examines several contrasting cultural and historical eras to identify the distinctive features of the description of the psychology. Also, theoretical works on the development of thinking and speech of the child are involved in the research. Results of the analysis showed significant differences between the ways of representing the psychological portrait of a child in literary works and made it clear that children’s consciousness in literature is a psychological construct of literature itself.
