Childhood by Ferial J. Ghazoul
Book DescriptionThis issue of "Alif" is published on the centennial anniversary of the founding the first Casa dei Bambini, a progressive educational institution for children, which seeks an alternative mode in bringing them up and nurturing their independence. An extract from the writings of the pedagogue of this innovative method, "Maria Montessori", is here translated into Arabic for the first time.This collection covers the universe of children through interviews, photo-essays, testimonies, and articles in psychology, philosophy, law, music, fiction, media, poetry, and drama, addressing varied aspects of childhood: from Shakespeare for children to puppet theater in Egypt; from plays for dispossessed camp children to children enlisted in militias; from the affluent and leisurely childhood of Virginia Woolf to the wonders of the early years of a poet like Muhammad Afifi Matar. The essays also explore heroism and ethical values in children's literature, as well as musical adaptations of children's literature and the art and craft of making books for children.
