About this product
- DescriptionThe contributors to this collection of essays address children's literature as an art form, rather than an educational instrument, as has been the traditional approach. Scholars from 10 different countries present a variety of approaches to the history of children's literature, including views on sociological, semiotic, and intertextual models of its evolution. Other issues explored include influence and interaction between stories and their countries of origin. This strong presentation of international perspectives on children's literature will be a valuable resource for scholars of children's and comparative literature.
- Author BiographyMARIA NIKOLAJEVA is Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature at Stockholm University where she teaches children's literature. She is the current president of the International Research Society for Children's Literature and author of The Magic Code: The Use of Magical Patterns in Fantasy for Children.
