Where Words Fail: Rational Education Unravels in Maria Edgeworth's "The Good French Governess."
Sotiropoulos, Carol Strauss
Children's Literature in Education, v32 n4 p305-21 Dec 2001
Argues that precepts for cultivating the rational child, illustrated by Maria and Richard Edgeworth in their handbook "Practical Education," collide with fictional presentations of those precepts in Maria's novella "The Good French Governess." Considers how the collision between the demands of ideology and the needs of fiction raise questions about genre, about expectations of nonfictions and fictions pertaining to education. (SG)
