Content

This unit introduces students to major historical literary movements such as Realism and Romanticism, through the lens of the Golden Age – a period in which representations of children and childhood reflected broader social and cultural changes from the 18th to early 20th centuries. Through interaction with historical texts and literature for child and adult readers alike, students will study how the writing of the Golden Age shaped ideas about nature, industrialisation, education, morality and citizenship, particularly in relation to young people.
