Abstract
V diplomski nalogi obravnavamo tri dnevniške romane angleške pisateljice Sue Townsend (1946-2014) - Skrivni dnevnik Jadrana Krta, starega 13 3/4 (1982), Rastoče težave Jadrana Krta (1984) ter Resnične izpovedi Jadrana Krta (1989) - v kontekstu vodilne socialno-politične paradigme Anglije v osemdesetih. Obravnavana dela razumemo kot primere "crossover" (naslovniško odprte) literature, pokažemo pa, da obravnavani romani niso le primer (lahkotnejšega) "mladinskega leposlovja", temveč je njihov potencial žanrsko ostrejši. Obravnavana besedila je moč razumeti kot družbeno-politično satiro, ki jo bralcem in bralkam posreduje poseben tip pripovedovalca, imenovan nezanesljiv - naiven in/ali zaslepljen - pripovedovalec. V diplomskem delu predstavimo koncept neoliberalizma, natančneje thatcherizma, ki ga razumemo kot socialno-ekonomsko politično agendo Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) v času vodenja vlade od leta 1979 do 1990. V luči družbenih posledic thatcherizma nato predstavimo fikcijski svet Jadrana Krta, osrednjega junaka obravnavanih literarnih besedil. Najprej analiziramo socialno-ekonomsko depriviligiran položaj Jadranove družine in politično odraščanje junaka, ki postopoma vse jasneje beleži kritike Margaret Thatcher. Satirični potencial literarnih del predstavimo preko analize literarnega lika ravnatelja Cepidlaka in Jadranove babice, ki ju razumemo kot groteskna thatcheristična govorila. Strukturno mesto, ki jo v thatcheristični ideologiji zaseda grožnja komunizma, v Jadranovem literarnem svetu predstavlja Bert Baxter, prostaški, a benigen starec. Nadalje predstavimo tudi kritiko militarizma skozi pripovedovalčevo spremljanje falklandske vojne (1982), predstavimo pa tudi njegov naiven odnos do monarhije. Diplomsko delo zaključimo s predstavitvijo Jadranovega razumevanja procesov emancipacije njegove matere in dekleta in ugotavljamo, da pripovedovalčeva feministična zrelost ne korelira z njegovo politično zrelostjo.

Abstract:
The university degree thesis discusses three diary novels by the English writer Sue Townsend (1946-2014) - The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 (1982), The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole (1984) and The True Confessions of Adrian Albert Mole (1989) - in the context of the dominant socio-political paradigm of England in the 1980s. We understand the texts as instances of crossover literature, but we also demonstrate that the novels are not merely examples of (light) "adolescent and young adult fiction", as their potential in terms of genre seems to be sharper. The texts can be perceived as socio-political satire that is narrated by a specific narrator: the unreliable - naive and/or deluded - narrator. The thesis presents the concept of neoliberalism, more specifically Thatcherism, which we define as the socio-economic political agenda of Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) during her time as the Prime Minister of the UK between 1979 and 1990. In light of the social consequences of Thatcherism we outline the fictional world of Adrian Mole, the central character of the literary texts under discussion. First, we analyse the socio-economically underprivileged position of Adrian's family and his political growing up, during which period his diary entries gradually include ever clearer instances of criticism of Margaret Thatcher. We present the satirical potential of the texts through an analysis of the literary characters of the headmaster Mr Scruton and Adrian's grandmother, both of whom we see as grotesque Thatcherite mouthpieces. The structural position occupied by the threat of Communism in Thatcherite ideology is represented, in Adrian's fictional world, by Bert Baxter, a vulgar but benign old man. Then we move on to criticism of militarism, which can be observed through the narrator's comments on the Falklands War (1982). We also point to Adrian's naive attitude towards the monarchy. The thesis concludes with a presentation of Adrian's understanding of the processes of his mother's and his girlfriend's emancipation, where we show that the narrator's feminist maturity does not correlate with his political maturity.
