Children's Literature by Peter Hunt

Book Description

The study of children's literature is currently centred on literary studies, educational studies, and a third more diverse group of many other related disciplines, including history, bibliography, sociology and psychology. All of these then overlap with cultural studies and contribute to the rapidly growing meta-discipline of childhood studies. Fascinating and insightful, this four-volume collection gathers together fundamental and essential essays from across the spectrum of disciplines, and is organized so that each volume focuses on one general interest group or area. With entries from specialist and professional journals across the world, this is a unique resource to complement the burgeoning numbers of specialist and reference books in the field.

Books By Author Peter Hunt

J.R.R. Tolkien by Peter Hunt J.R.R. Tolkien, Hardback (October 2013)

This edited collection of brand new essays examines The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the light of children's literature theory and approaches. Exploring issues such as gender, language, narrative, and ecocriticism, the volume also places Tolkien's most popular works in the context of a range of visual media including the film adaptations.

Secret Garden by Peter Hunt Secret Garden, Paperback (March 2011)

An unhappy orphaned girl is transformed by the redeeming power of nature into an unselfish child who transforms the lives of others in Burnett's classic children's story. This edition explores the relationship between the book and other literary genres and historical influences, and includes the companion-piece, 'My Robin'.

Treasure Island by Peter Hunt Treasure Island, Paperback (January 2011)

Stevenson's classic tale of buccaneers, a treasure map, and a hunt for buried gold introduced the character of Long John Silver and brought moral ambiguity into children's books. This new edition celebrates the ultimate book of pirates and examines its innovations and unrivalled place in literary history.
