內容簡介top Telling Children's Stories 簡介 The most accessible approach yet to children literature and narrative theory, Telling Children Stories is a comprehensive collection of never-before-published essays by an international slate of scholars that offers a broad yet in-depth assessment of narrative strategies unique to children literature. The volume is divided into four interrelated sections: enre Templates and Transformations,?pproaches to the Picture Book,?arrators and Implied Readers,?and arrative Time.?Mike Cadden introduction considers the links between the various essays and topics, as well as their connections with such issues as metafiction, narrative ethics, focalization, and plotting. Ranging in focus from picture books to novels such as To Kill a Mockingbird, from detective fiction for children to historical tales, from new works such as the Lemony Snicket series to classics like Tom Midnight Garden, these essays explore notions of montage and metaphor, perspective and subjectivity, identification and time. Together, they comprise a resource that will interest and instruct scholars of narrative theory and children literature, and that will become critically important to the understanding and development of both fields.
