About this product
- DescriptionAlice to the Lighthouse is the first and only full-length study of the relation between children's literature and writing for adults. Lewis Carroll's Alice books created a revolution in writing for and about children which had repercussions t only for subsequent children's writers - such as Stevenson, Kipling, Nesbit, Frances Hodgson Burnett and Mark Twain - but for Virginia Woolf and her generation. Virginia Woolf's celebration of writing as play rather than preaching is the twin of the Post-Impressionist art championed by Roger Fry. Dusinberre connects books for children in the late nineteenth century with developments in education and psychology, all of which feed into the modernism of the early twentieth century.
- Author BiographyJULIET DUSINBERRE is M. C. Bradbrook Fellow in English at Girton College, Cambridge, and is the author of Virginia Woolf's Renaissance: Woman Reader or Common Reader? and of the pioneering work, Shakespeare and the Nature of Women (2nd edition).
