Product Description

Details

This volume of twenty essays presents a unique insight into the world of Scottish children's literature throughout the long nineteenth century. As well as revisiting much-loved authors such as Stevenson, Barrie, and MacDonald, it explores the neglected role of women writers in shaping the inheritance of Scottish children's literature, the significant contribution of Gaelic writers, and the role of folklore and tradition. Essays also examine the significance of children as literary protagonists, and as readers themselves. In recovering these marginal voices and texts, and in showing how well-known stories explore questions of culture, identity, and language, The Land of Story-Booksseeks to restore the traditions of children's writing to the heart of Scottish literary history.
