9780820334813: Poetics of Children's Literature

Since its emergence in the seventeenth century as a distinctive cultural system, children’s literature has had a culturally inferior status resulting from its existence in a netherworld between the literary system and the educational system. In addition to its official readership―children―it has to be approved of by adults. Writers for children, explains Zohar Shavit, are constrained to respond to these multiple systems of often mutually contradictory demands. Most writers do not try to bypass these constraints, but accept them as a framework for their work. In the most extreme cases an author may ignore one segment of the readership. If the adult reader is ignored, the writer risks rejection, as is the case of popular literature. If the writer utilizes the child as a pseudo addressee in order to appeal to an adult audience, the result can be what Shavit terms an ambivalent work.

Shavit analyzes the conventions and the moral aims that have structured children’s literature, from the fairy tales collected and reworked by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm―in particular, “Little Red Riding Hood”―through the complex manipulations of Lewis Carroll in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, to the subversion of the genre’s canonical requirements in the chapbooks of the eighteenth century, and in the formulaic Nancy Drew books of the twentieth century. Throughout her study Shavit, explores not only how society has shaped children’s literature, but also how society has been reflected in the literary works it produces for its children.

About the Author :

Zohar Shavit is a full professor at the Unit for Culture Research in the School of Culture Research at the Tel-Aviv University. She is the author of ten books, among them: "The Literary Life in Eretz-Israel, 1910-1933," "The Construction of Hebrew Culture in Eretz Israel," "A Past without Shadow," and "German-Jewish Literature for Children and Adolescents."

From Library Journal :

Advocacy of value systems is not unique to children's literature. This semiotic study of the social matrix of the genre sees it as in thrall to the educational establishment. While deploring the poor self-image of children's literature, Shavit discounts as "ambivalent" (ostensibly for children but "really" for adults) some of its best productions. Although the rise of the "notion of the child" is central to the argument, a major weakness of the text is its failure to distinguish among child readers or to acknowledge advanced literary competence among them. Other weaknesses include obscurities of semiotic jargon and limitations of the test-case method. Much theoretical discussion of conventions and constraints merely underscores the fact that this genre must accommodate both adult and child readers.
