The theoretical part of my diploma work deals with a poet and writer Peter Svetina, his biography ( with emphasis on autopoethics) and his bibliography. It deals with a literary theory which is important for evaluation of his works and their placement into the concept of children's literature. In a more detailed way, it presents the literary texts which I discussed together with the pupils of the second class for my diploma work.
These texts are poetry anthologies such as The Passing-By World, Poems From The Washing Machine and literary texts such as About The Walrus That Didn't Want To Cut Its Nails, The Walrus Gets Glasses, The Hat Of Mr. Constantine, The Wisdom Of Hippos, How Jaromir Was Looking For Happiness and the Magic Ring.
The research part of my diploma work deals with the examples of pupils' interpretations of the chosen texts, the creative works of the pupils themselves and their responses, the description of the knowledge survey about the poet and writer Peter Svetina and research results. It also introduces criteria of texts selection for reading by the pupils of the first three classes of the Primary School Nove Fužine.
It has been found out that our pupils didn't know the author Peter Svetina beforehand. Our pupils from the first three classes deal with books and literary works in an integrated way and that's exactly the purpose of the author. Our pupils' emphasis is on the animal characters in literature but with the appropriate preparation they can identify themselves with adult characters in literature as well.
