Abstract
The aim of this essay is to study the key characteristics of the Bildungsroman and examine if the same traits still are in use in contemporary fiction and what values that are being mediated. The aim is also to focus on the style in which the pedagogical message is being delivered thus highlighting the possible differences and similarities between an old-fashioned Bildungsroman, Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations, and a contemporary one, Hanif Kureishi’s The Buddha of Suburbia.
