Thomas Van der Walt, Felicité Fairer-Wessels, Judith Inggs
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - Literary Criticism - 208 pages
Each of the book's eighteen chapters represents a unique aspect of children's literature theory. Topics range from an analysis of the children's literature as creative act, changing interpretations of different genres, and the impact of shifting race relations and socio-political developments on children's literature. This presentation of international perspectives on children's literature theory and criticism by leading authorities will be a valuable resource for scholars of children's and comparative literature.
