    Children’s literature comprises a complex of belles-lettres texts, written by adult authors who establish a dialogue with a child in this way. The author's self-understanding or how the adults see the dialogue with the child is seen in literary works and autopoetics. The latter is about the author's explanation of their own view on young adult literature creation. Children’s literature is very diverse, considering the perspective from which the author presents the textual reality. In my thesis I researched the prevailing perspectives in literary works of Majda Koren, and how the pupil's feedback differs based on different perspectives. The introductory part is focused on presenting the Slovene children’s literature writer Majda Koren and her literary work. In the central part various perspectives that are characterized in young adult literature are presented, and Koren's works are analyzed according to the prevailing perspective. I figured out that the perspective of reconciliation is prevailent in her works, which means that the author identifies herself with the child's soul and mostly writes about the troubles of heroes that prevent the children’s world to be like they want it to be. In the final part lesson plans for four literary works of Majda Koren are written. I carried out the lessons in the 5th grade of primary school. The students’ feedback to the discussed works was positive, but it differed according to the perspective. They liked works with the realistic perspective and a hero they could identify with the most. With every discussed literary work pupils were also recreating literary works. The easiest for them was to write fantasy texts – about themselves as the allmighty hero who solves all the problems. Somewhat harder for them was to describe real events that they experienced, because they could not use their imagination in this case. In the end I did an interview with Majda Koren.
