On a Bridge
Steedman, Carolyn
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v22 n3 p245-259 2015
The sources and motives for children writing are discussed in the context of 1950s Britain. The images and objects that furnish the story-making imagination are related to Charles Lamb's account of looking at old china (teacups and plates) as a child in the 1790s. A focus of this essay is the little-discussed topic of a writer's failure to write what he or she means.
