Radical Children's Literature: Future Visions and Aesthetic Transformations in Juvenile Fiction

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Kim Reynolds


Full text is not currently available for this publication.


The book demonstrates children's literature's contribution to literary culture as a combination of seedbed, incubator, safehouse and area for often unguarded experimentation. It looks at a range of genres, forms and formats from the children's literature of several countries and discusses the changing nature of boundaries, and taboos in writing for children and young adults. It has been described as 'a long overdue rethinking of the status of children's fiction....Covering a huge geographical and historical range, Reynolds examines both traditional and less traditional literary forms (visual media, computer games, fan fiction, etc.), effortlessly combining insightful close readings with an enviable theoretical acumen. It is destined to beceome a classic in the field.' (David Rudd, University of Bolton)
