9780198119982: Children's Literature: Criticism and the Fictional Child

An original and lucid study of the figure of the child as it is presented in the rapidly expanding field of criticism of children's literature, this book argues that this body of criticism reveals the realm of childhood as constructed by the adult reader. Karin Lesnik-Oberstein demonstrates that both the criticism and the texts it studies are underpinned by the narratives of the liberal arts' educational ideals and their attendant socio-political and personal ideologies. The author places literary discussion into the wider current debates about childhood in psychology and psychotherapy. This lively polemic represents a significant rethinking of the idea of childhood and approaches to children's literature.

From the Back Cover:

Children's Literature: Criticism and the Fictional Child is an original and lucid study of the figure of the 'child' as it is presented in the rapidly expanding field of the criticism of children's literature. The book argues that in fact this same body of criticism - through often contradictory versions of the 'child' - reveals the realm of 'childhood' as one constructed by adult critics. Karin Lesnik-Oberstein demonstrates that both this criticism and the texts it studies are underpinned by the narratives of the liberal arts' educational ideals and their attendant socio-political and personal ideologies. The author sets literary discussion into the context of current wider debates about childhood psychology and psychotherapy. This lively polemic represents a significant rethinking of 'childhood' and approaches to children's literature.
