Children's literature : an illustrated history by Peter Hunt( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written by leading experts, this survey shows that children's literature reflects how childhood has been defined, controlled, and appreciated at different times. It reveals how adults have explored questions of power, entertainment, sexuality, and equality through their writing for children, and demonstrates how the borders between what is adult and what children's fiction are routinely blurred. A series of chronological chapters charts the 'history' which begins in the sixteenth century with grammars and ABCs. We move from books of instruction through to fables and fantasies in the eighteenth century, from reward books and romance to school stories in the nineteenth, and on to comics, colour picture-books, and science fiction in our own century. Throughout the text, books, authors, illustrators, publishers, and children readers are discussed within their wider social, political, and economic environment
