English 2033E explores forms of and approaches to literature for children and young adults. A core of required texts by nineteenth- and early twentieth-century authors of significance to the historical development of children's literature will be supplemented by more contemporary classics and popular writings. Works may be considered from historical, cultural, generic, multicultural and/or theoretical perspectives. Attention will also be given to Canadian children's literature.
Students will be required to read/study a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 30 works (depending on the length of the works). Some of the instructor's optional or discretionary texts may be tutorial assignments, or may be left to individual students, under the guidance of the instructor.
