Product description


'[E]ach chapter of this book deepens and refines our understanding of some well-known masterpieces, opening new lines of inquiry into canonical texts. Beyond exploring strangeness and strangers, therefore, these analyses of educative strangeness in works of literature will appeal to educational philosophers as well as literary scholars.'
Thomas Cole, PhD candidate in English at the University of Florida, Review 19, 29 July 2017
