Illustrated laminated wrappers, 8vo, 23 cm, xii, 364 pp. From the blurb: " Written for Children was first published in 1965. It was immediately recognized as not only a readable and stimulating account of the development of children's books but also an important critical contribution to the subject. For the revised and expanded edition of 1974, John Rowe Townsend extended the scope of the book to cover the development of children's books in the United States and the Commonwealth, as well as other works of the imagination first published in the English language, including poetry and picture books. This latest picture-book includes a whole new section on English, American and Australian developments spanning the period 1945-85.' Good. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-17888

Über diesen Titel


This revised and updated edition provides children's and young adult librarians, teachers, literature classes, and library school classes with an authoritative history and analysis of the best British and American children's literature through 1994, with a new 2003 postscript including such recent phenomenons as J.K.Rowling and Philip Pullman. Written for Children traces the development of children's literature from its origins through the beginnings of the multimedia revolution. In effortless and entertaining style, Townsend, a world-renowned authority in the field, examines the changing attitudes toward children and their literature and analyzes the various strands that make up this important field. While examining many well-known American classics, Townsend also looks at British works that American audiences may have overlooked. With illustrations and bibliography.
