Children's Literature. Volume 3.
Butler, Francelia, Ed.; Brockman, Bennett A., Ed.
This volume applies critical literary standards to the field of children's literature in a long-range effort to improve its quality and teaching. Contributors and editors represent international scholarship in all of the humanities, as well as in the specific area of children's literature. Articles span topics from European children's literature to the English classics by Chaucer and Bronte, and psychological consideration is applied to the areas of fantasy, story-awareness, and myth. Two recommended catalogs of children's books are abstracted, and a number of current books, plays, and poetry selections are reviewed and studied. A list of topics suitable for further scholarly investigation accompanies the book. (MAI)
