Children’s Classics (LIT2322.01)

Brooke Allen

We will read a variety of children’s classics, largely but not exclusively from the Anglo-American tradition, and consider them both as timeless works of art and as repositories for many of the values and anxieties of their eras. Authors considered will probably include Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Heinrich Hoffmann, Carlo Collodi, Joel Chandler Harris, Louisa May Alcott, J. M. Barrie, Beatrix Potter, L. Frank Baum, A.A. Milne, Kenneth Graham, and Maurice Sendak, among others.
