Spring 2015 - Graduate Course Descriptions
Description of Course:
The "long" nineteenth century saw the development of the children's literature we still love, from _Alice in Wonderland_ to _Peter Rabbit_ to _Peter Pan_. We will read and enjoy these classics, but we will also explore the darker aspects of childhood in the period, using a range of fictional and extraliterary texts.
TBA. Authors will probably include Robert Owen, Charlotte Bronte, Dickens, and others, in addition to the authors of children's literature.
