Kiddie lit : the cultural construction of children's literature in America by Beverly Lyon Clark ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Kiddie Lit, Beverly Lyon Clark explores the marginalization of children's literature in America - and recent signs of its reintegration - within the academy and by the mainstream critical establishment. Tracing the reception of works by Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, Lewis Carroll, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. Frank Baum, Walt Disney, and J. K. Rowling, Clark reveals fundamental shifts in the assessment of the literary worth of books beloved by both children and adults. While uncovering the institutional underpinnings of this transition, Clark also attributes it to changing American attitudes toward childhood itself: a cultural resistance to the intrinsic value of childhood expressed through sentimentality, condescension, and moralizing."--BOOK JACKET
Girls, boys, books, toys : gender in children's literature and culture ( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Girls, Boys, Books, Toys asks questions about how the gender symbolism of children's culture is constructed and resisted. What happens when women rewrite (or illustrate) nursery rhymes, adventure stories, and fairy tales told by men? How do the socially scripted plots for boys and girls change through time and across cultures? Have critics been blind to what women write about "masculine" topics? Can animal tales or doll stories displace tired commonplaces about gender, race, and class? Can different critical approaches - new historicism, narratology, or postcolonialism - enable us to gain leverage on the different implications of gender, age, race, and class in our readings of children's books and children's culture?"--BOOK JACKET
