Focusing on questions of space and locale in childrenas literature, this collection explores how metaphorical and physical space can create landscapes of power, knowledge, and identity in texts from the early nineteenth century to the present. The collection is comprised of four sections that take up the space between children and adults, the representation of 'real world' places, fantasy travel and locales, and the physical space of the childrenas book-as-object. In their essays, the contributors analyze works from a range of sources and traditions by authors such as Sylvia Plath, Maria Edgeworth, Gloria AnzaldAoa, Jenny Robson, C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Knox, and Claude Ponti. While maintaining a focus on how location and spatiality aid in defining the childas relationship to the world, the essays also address themes of borders, displacement, diaspora, exile, fantasy, gender, history, home-leaving and homecoming, hybridity, mapping, and metatextuality. With an epilogue by Philip Pullman in which he discusses his own relationship to image and locale, this collection is also a valuable resource for understanding the work of this celebrated author of childrenas literature.chapter 10 the Childa#39;s imaginary World: the Spaces of Claude Pontia#39;s Picture Books catherine renaud* Claude Ponti is a famous ... 1988) a contain all of the elements that the author develops in the rest of his work. in this essay i use GAcrard Genettea#39;s definition of the paratext ...
