Narratives of Love and Loss by Michael Rustin

Book Description

On its first publication Narratives of Love and Loss was widely recognised as an important and perceptive contribution to the study of children's literature and for its capacity to stimulate deep emotional responses in both child and adult readers. This welcome reissue includes a new postscript exploring in detail the phenomenal success of J.K Rowling's series of Harry Potter stories.Margaret and Michael Rustin succeed in bringing a deep sociological and psychoanalytic close reading to some of the finest writing for children in post-war Britain and America, including works by C.S. Lewis, Rumer Godden, E.B. White and Russel Hoban.Focussed primarily on the 'fantasy genre of stories' the authors identify and sensitively explore the themes of imaginative and emotional growth, language and play, love and loss; always situating these within the broader social and cultural context.Written in a clear and accessible manner, this is a richly stimulating and insightful book that will be of great interest not only to all professionals concerned with the well-being of children, but to all adults who receive pleasure from this evocative literary genre.
