Not a survey, this course attempts to cover some of the high points of literature for children in the West over the past two centuries, moving from the Grimms's fairy tales to the present, and generically from folk and fairy tales through more literary fairy tales (Andersen) to the golden age of Victorian and Edwardian children's literature and finally to 20th-century fables, poetry, and fantasy. This interdisciplinary course draws upon the fields of education, psychology, anthropology, social work, and others.
