This paper will discuss the mediation of the theme of identity in the work of the Swedish writer and artist; Inger Edelfeldt. More specifically we explore how this thematics; which we call â€śthe girl and the monsterâ€ť; is presented in the novel Kamalas bok (1986) (KamalaÂ´s book) as compared to her comic strip albums; Den feminina mystiken (The feminine mystique) and Hondjuret (The she-animal); both from the 1980â€™s. One aim of the paper is to show how media specificity brings out different but also similar aesthetic and discursive presentations. Another aim is to explore how intermedial analysis can deepen the understanding of the identity theme; as well as the respective medium. For example it can deepen your awareness of the element of visuality present in the literary text and the discursive element in visual media. In intermedial studies there is an interest in artists who use different media because of the assumption that the interrelations of their works should be illuminating for this type of study.
