Content

This unit introduces students to study some of the classics of children's literature. A major focus of this unit is on how changing attitudes to children, and the educational purposes of literature for children, are reflected in a range of texts published between the late fourteenth and early twentieth centuries. As canonical children's literature continues to be read by children today - and influences the contemporary texts produced for them - this unit pays particular attention to the interrelationship between the social, cultural and political values of past and present.
