Boys and girls forever children's classics from cinderella to harry potter

Are some of the world's most talented children's book authors essentially children themselves' In this engaging series of essays, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alison Lurie considers this theory, exploring children's classics from many eras and relating them to the authors who wrote them, including Little Women author Louisa May Alcott and Wizard of Oz author Frank Baum, as well as Dr. Seuss and Salman Rushdie. Analyzing these and many others, Lurie shows how these gifted writers have used children's literature to transfigure sorrow, nostalgia, and the struggles of their own experiences.

  • "Suite de "Ne le dites pas aux grands". Dix-sept essais qui ont presque tous paru, sous une forme parfois différente, dans "The New York review of books". Un auteur ou un livre par essai (H. C. Andersen, Dr Seuss, John Masefield, J. K. Rowling (les "Harry Potter"), S. Rushdie, W. De La Mare, etc.) et quelques approches thématiques ou par genre ("Ce que nous disent les contes de fées", "Les illustrations de livres pour enfants", etc. À noter que tous les auteurs sont anglophones sauf deux: C. Collodi "Pinocchio" et Jean puis Laurent de Brunhoff (la série des "Babar"). L'éditeur précise que "nourri d'anecdotes, d'éléments biographiques et de souvenirs personnels", le livre montre "ce qui s'échafaude et se trame entre un enfant et son livre, un auteur et ses personnages". [SDM]."
