Summary
These distinguished essays powerfully define the myriad ways in which the Romantic image of the child, so compellingly portrayed by Wordsworth and Blake, continues to haunt us, shaping contemporary visions of childhood from Calvin and Hobbes to postmodernist poetry and fiction to sociological discussions of child-labor, child-abuse and the feminization of poverty. Literature and the Child, ably edited by James Holt McGavran, should be read by anyone interested in the history of the cultural construction of childhood.--Anne K. Mellor
