Jag har drömt en dröm... : En analys av H.G. Wells noveller "Mr Skelmersdale in Fairyland", "The Door in the Wall" och "A Dream of Armageddon" (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

"I Have Dreamed a Dream..." is an analysis of the three short stories "Mr Skelmersdale in Fairyland", "The Door in the Wall" and "A Dream of Armageddon" by H.G. Wells. The essay makes a comparison of the three short stories from the perspectives of the dreamland, the inner struggle of the protagonist and the message of the story. The purpose is to show that the three seemingly similar short stories have different outcomes and deliver different messages to the reader. The essay finally presents a theory of how these messages coincide despite their differences.

Abstract [sv]

"Jag har drömt en dröm..." är en analys av de tre novellerna "Mr Skelmersdale in Fairyland", "The Door in the Wall" och "A Dream of Armageddon" av H.G. Wells. Uppsatsen gör en jämförelse av de tre novellerna utifrån tre perspektiv: drömvärlden, huvudpersonens inre kamp och historiens budskap. Syftet är att visa hur de tre till synes lika novellerna har olika resultat och presenterar olika budskap till läsaren. Uppsatsen framför slutligen en teori för hur dessa budskap överensstämmer trots sina olikheter.
