This thesis comes in two volumes. The first, in the following pages, combines observations of the translation process of Erik L’Homme’s Phaenomen with the theorizations of Gayatri Spivak’s work on the subaltern to suggest that L’Homme’s novel manages to demonstrate important aspects to the development of young adults into adults subject to the world around them. This thesis deals specifically with the case of the book’s four central young adult characters, who are seen as Other by the adult world. I will show how these four young adults come to find a place in the world, or under it, as autonomous adults through the guidance of their Native Informant, their life experiences in face of the geopolitical structures which silence them, the importance of humor and coded language, and their acceptance of the fantastic powers which cause them to be viewed as Others. The second volume of this thesis is the full-novel translation of Erik L’Homme’s Phaenomen from French into English.
