The openhearted audience : ten authors talk about writing for children by Virginia Haviland( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains comments by ten authors of children's literature concerning the influences they feel account for the particular qualities that define their books and about creative writing and children's literature in general. In the first article, P. L. Travers stresses the importance of fairy tales, myths, and legends in shaping her work, while in the second article, Maurice Sendak contends that there is probably no such thing as creativity without fantasy. In the third article, Joan Aiken expresses her belief that one of the functions of books is to feed children's imaginations and to provide them with the material for creating their own fantasies. Erik Haugaard discusses Hans Christian Andersen and his fairy tales and the art of translating in the fourth article, and Ivan Southall recalls the influences of his childhood in the fifth article. In the sixth article, Ursula Le Guin discusses a "puritanical distrust" of fantasy she has seen in many people, who do not realize the function and worth fairy tales have in children's lives. In the seventh article, Virginia Hamilton points to the significance symbols hold for her, and in the eighth article, John Rowe Townsend considers the interplay between the creative arts of writing and criticism. In the ninth article, Eleanor Cameron discusses dreams, art, and the unconscious, and in the last article, Jill Paton Walsh discusses children as "Lords of Time," whose job it is to carry forth the ideas valued today.
