Product Description

Review

Children's Literature in Context is a meeting ground where literary history meets literary criticism in a broad intertextual reach. Here is a journey for the reader who travels from definitions of the genre to socio-political contexts, to close readings of classic and contemporary texts, to a critical framework of interpretations and perspectives, to expansive cultural adaptations. At each juncture McCulloch interweaves theory with striking ease, linking children's literature to a larger world of literature and philosophy. Her readings of texts are fresh, provocative, coherent. Designed to serve as a textbook, McCulloch's work is also a handbook to the field, offering a range of resources for students and scholars, a spacious landscape.--Sanford Lakoff

Format: Paperback
This book is brilliant - it takes you through from the very origins of children's literature right to the present day with Harry Potter and the His Dark Materials trilogy. McCulloch brings to light the not so discussed themes within children's literature, giving it a whole new edge. The book offers plenty of close readings; for example of The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Treasure Island, The Secret Garden and much more. I would seriously recommend this book for anyone studying children's literature either at an entry level or high.

Very useful and interesting. It was great research for what I needed in studying Harry Potter and the effects JK Rowling had on the literature world.
