Pippi, Annika i Nini – trzy figury dziewczyńskości


This article is an invitation to think about three girl characters from young adult literature as figures of girlhood. The juxtaposition of three very different heroines makes it possible, on the one hand, to reflect on the benefits of such an arrangement, and, on the other hand, it shows the great variety of possibilities that the very concept of “girlhood” entails. The exchange of talents and competencies makes it possible to strengthen and, at the same time, diversify the titular category.

Keywords: girlhood, figure, the drama of successful child, invisible child, orphanage
