Description
 
In this engaging series of essays, Lurie explores children’s classics from many eras & relates them to the authors who wrote them, including Louisa May Alcott, creator of “Little Women,” Salmon Rushdie & his “Haroun & the Sea of Stories,” Dr. Seuss & J.K. Rowling. In analyzing these & many other authors, Lurie shows how these gifted writers have used children’s literature to transfigure sorrow, nostalgia & the struggles of their own experience. Lurie’s subjects range from what fairy tales tell us to book illustrators & children’s games, from enchanted forests & secret gardens in children’s literature to poetry by & for children. Lurie has for many years taught courses in children’s literature, & where her subjects include writing, folklore & literature.
