Description : Read Now Crossover Picturebooks by Sandra L. Beckett and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this book situates the picturebook genre within the widespread international phenomenon of crossover literature, examining an international corpus of picturebooks — including artists’ books, wordless picturebooks, and celebrity picturebooks — that appeal to readers of all ages. focusing on contemporary picturebooks, sandra beckett shows that the picturebook has traditionally been seen as a children’s genre, but in the eyes of many authors, illustrators, and publishers, it is a narrative form that can address any and all age groups. innovative graphics and formats as well as the creative, often complex dialogue between text and image provide multiple levels of meaning and invite readers of all ages to consider texts that are primarily marketed as children’s books. the interplay of text and image that distinguishes the picturebook from other forms of fiction and makes it a unique art form also makes it the ultimate crossover genre. crossover picturebooks are often very complex texts that are challenging for adults as well as children. many are characterized by difficult "adult" themes, genre blending, metafictive discourse, intertextuality, sophisticated graphics, and complex text-image interplay. exciting experiments with new formats and techniques, as well as novel interactions with new media and technologies have made the picturebook one of the most vibrant and innovative contemporary literary genres, one that seems to know no boundaries. crossover picturebooks is a valuable addition to the study of a genre that is gaining increasing recognition and appreciation, and contributes significantly to the field of children’s literature as a whole.

Description : Read Now From Mythic To Linear by Maria Nikolajeva and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. now available in paperback in this radically new approach to text typology, maria nikolajeva examines the depiction of time in literature for children. nikolajeva identifies a continuum of texts ranging from those that depict non-linear time, typical of archaic, or mythical, thought, to those that express linearity, typical of contemporary mainstream literature. the author argues that literature is a deconstruction, a displacement, of myth, and that it depicts a symbolic coming-of-age process rather than a strictly representational reflection of a concrete "reality." the texts are categorized by the degree to which the coming-of-age process is accomplished; the movement is from an initial condition of primary harmony (arcadia, paradise, utopia) through different stages toward either a successful or a failed passage. from mythic to linear is a broad study, encompassing a number of children's novels from different epochs and countries: scandinavian, british, american, canadian, australian, south african, and east european. the international character contributes a better knowledge of children's literature from different parts of the world widening the horizons of children's literature research too often confined to one particular country. nikolajeva's unique approach allows her to disregard the traditional, and some would argue obsolete, division of children's novels into realism and fantasy. with its unique approach and broad international scope, from mythic to linear will be of interest to all those interested in children's literature and in comparative literature in general. includes bibliography and footnotes."

Description : Read Now Re Visioning Historical Fiction For Young Readers by Kim Wilson and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this study is concerned with how readers are positioned to interpret the past in historical fiction for children and young adults. looking at literature published within the last thirty to forty years, wilson identifies and explores a prevalent trend for re-visioning and rewriting the past according to modern social and political ideological assumptions. fiction within this genre, while concerned with the past at the level of content, is additionally concerned with present views of that historical past because of the future to which it is moving. specific areas of discussion include the identification of a new sub-genre: living history fiction, stories of joan of arc, historical fiction featuring agentic females, the very popular scholastic press historical journal series, fictions of war, and historical fiction featuring multicultural discourses. wilson observes specific traits in historical fiction written for children — most notably how the notion of positive progress into the future is nuanced differently in this literature in which the concept of progress from the past is inextricably linked to the protagonist’s potential for agency and the realization of subjectivity. the genre consistently manifests a concern with identity construction that in turn informs and influences how a metanarrative of positive progress is played out. this book engages in a discussion of the functionality of the past within the genre and offers an interpretative frame for the sifting out of the present from the past in historical fiction for young readers.

Description : Read Now New Directions In Picturebook Research by Teresa Colomer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in this new collection, children’s literature scholars from twelve different countries contribute to the ongoing debate on the importance of picturebook research, focusing on aesthetic and cognitive aspects of picture books. contributors take interdisciplinary approaches that integrate different disciplines such as literary studies, art history, linguistics, narratology, cognitive psychology, sociology, memory studies, and picture theory. topics discussed include intervisuality, twist endings, autobiographical narration, and metaliterary awareness in picturebooks. the essays also examine the narrative challenges of first-person narratives, ellipsis, and frame-breaking in order to consider the importance of mindscape as a new paradigm in picturebook research. tying picturebook studies to studies in childhood, multimodality, and literacy, this anthology is a representative of the different opportunities for research in this emerging field.

Le Guin and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. ursula k. le guin has won or been nominated for over 200 awards for her fiction, including the hugo, nebula, world fantasy and sfwa grand master awards. she is the acclaimed author of the earthsea sequence and the left hand of darkness - which alone would qualify her for literary immortality - as well as a remarkable body of short fiction, including the powerful, hugo-winning 'the ones who walk away from omelas' and the masterpiece of anthropological and environmental sf 'the word for world is forest' - winner of the hugo award for best novella. but ursula le guin's talents do not stop at fiction. over the course of her extraordinary career, she has penned numerous essays around themes important to her: anthropology, environmentalism, feminism, social justice and literary criticism to name a few. she has responded in detail to criticism of her own work and even reassessed that work in the context of such critiques. this selection of the best of le guin's non-fiction shows an agile mind, an unparalleled imagination and a ferocious passion to argue against injustice. in 2014 ursula le guin was awarded the national book foundation's medal for distinguished contribution to american letters, and her widely praised acceptance speech is one of the highlights of this volume, which shows that one of modern literature's most original voices is also one of its purest consciences.

Description : Read Now The Crossover Novel by Rachel Falconer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. "highly recommended" by choice while crossover books such as rowling's harry potter series have enjoyed enormous sales and media attention, critical analysis of crossover fiction has not kept pace with the growing popularity of this new category of writing and reading. falconer remedies this lack with close readings of six major british works of crossover fiction, and a wide-ranging analysis of the social and cultural implications of the global crossover phenomenon. a uniquely in-depth study of the crossover novel, falconer engages with a ground-breaking range of sources, from primary texts, to child and adult reader responses, to cultural and critical theory.
