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 886 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."--Jacket
Girls, boys, books, toys : gender in children's literature and culture( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 876 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?"--Jacket

16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of nineteenth-century reviews provides a wealth of new information for scholars interested in Alcott (increasing the number of indexed reviews almost tenfold) but also insight into the ways in which reading audiences were constructed in the nineteenth-century United States. The reviews provide a window on to nineteenth-century attitudes toward popular fiction and toward women writers. The author of the novels and of sensational tales, of travel writing and of temperance tracts, Alcott was both highly popular and highly respected. Her works were reviewed not just in magazines for children, but also in the most prestigious literary journals of the day
