This lecture focuses on the changing literary world of the child and the place of literature in the lives of today's children. The purpose is to consider developments in children's literature in their own right, to identify and critique depictions of children in literature and to relate developments in children's literature to the changing nature of children's lives. Consideration will be given to the child's world as depicted both in key books and literary characters.
