Från hundar till kungar : `master narratives’ och en mångfald av röster i Treasure Island och Black Sails (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to show how both Treasure Island and Black Sails depict master narratives that are mainly influenced by imperialist ideology. The essay analyzes elements present in both the novel and the television series that reflect imperialist practices such as “othering,” propaganda, and exploitation. The aim of this essay is also to underline the plurality of voices created by various narratives of marginalized people present in the two sources. By analyzing the perspective and social organization of minority groups such as children, gay men, and people with disabilities, this essay demonstrates how the narratives of marginalized people can be both subversive and complementary to the master narrative.
