Abstract

About the book: Children’s Literature: Approaches and Territories provides a social and literary overview of the field of Anglophone children’s literature: its history and genres, its current concerns and its possible future directions. Emphasising how children’s literature is embedded in the social life of children and adults, the collection brings together lively and accessible scholarly essays by leading scholars, some reprinted and others newly commissioned. It includes sections on poetry, drama and picture books and is supported by detailed introductory material, suggestions for further reading and a colour plate section reproducing illustrations from key children’s texts.
