Aim: The course aims to illustrate the complexity of the enterprise called writing for children. This course will cover many zeniths and nadirs of children’s literature through three centuries while discussing issues such as the changing ideal of literature for children, the changes in the education of the child, appropriation of literary texts by child readers, the politics of abridgement, endeavours towards engendering the child through literature, elements of subversion in writing for children and the various uses of the realm of fantasy in children’s literature. The newly emerging form of writing called Young Adult Literature will also be taken up for discussion.
