English term or phrase: coming-of-age story
Definition from VirtualSalt - Robert Harris:
A type of novel where the protagonist is initiated into adulthood through knowledge, experience, or both, often by a process of disillusionment. Understanding comes after the dropping of preconceptions, a destruction of a false sense of security, or in some way the loss of innocence. Some of the shifts that take place are these: * ignorance to knowledge * innocence to experience * false view of world to correct view * idealism to realism * immature responses to mature responses Examples: * Jane Austen Northanger Abbey * Charles Dickens, Great Expectations * Stephen Crane, The Red Badge of Courage

Example sentence(s):
  • Everything about Scherfig’s coming-of-age story about a girl in the London suburb of Twickenham in 1961 is spot-on. Austin Chronicle Corp.
  • But this comedy about a Texas high schooler (Ellen Page) who reinvents herself as “Babe Ruthless” and becomes the star of an Austin league is a surprisingly credible coming-of-age story. Creative Loafing Media
  • Ostensibly a coming-of-age story, this languorous, beautifully shot feature debut from Minh Nguyen-Vo, a writer and director, centers on a teenager whose journey from innocence to knowledge is also a twinned meditation on both the natural and very unnatural state of things. The New York Times Company

príbeh o dospievaní


Definition from own experience or research:
Príbeh, v ktorom hlavný hrdina/nka dospieva, zobrazený prostredníctvom sledu udalostí/zážitkov, v jeho/jej ktorých detská naivita a videnie sveta ustupuje a padá v dôsledku nových tvrdších či náročnejších skúseností.

Example sentence(s):
  • Ružové sny (1976) je divácky najvďačnejšia snímka režiséra Dušana Hanáka a spisovateľa Dušana Dušeka. Láskavý príbeh o dospievaní, snívaní, prvej veľkej a zároveň zakázanej láske medzi poštárom – gadžom Jakubom a krásnou Cigánkou Jolankou. V poetickom mozaikovitom príbehu na seba naráža svet hravej fantázie dedinského poštára a triezvy pragmatizmus každodenného života, ktorému musí ružové snívanie oboch protagonistov napokon ustúpiť. - Film.sk
