Sample text

Even now, when it is well established as a literary mode, magic(al) realism has received little recognition in the field of children’s literature. L. Travers’s Mary Poppins (1934), for instance, Maria Nikolajeva can only see the text as an example of fantasy, and Mary as a guest ‘from the implied secondary world’ (86). This reading results in Nikolajeva’s underplaying the extent to which the text, in true magic(al) realist fashion, offers a critique of the regimented, capitalist and patriarchal world view represented by Mr.

This chapter begins to address this silence by demonstrating that far from turning its back on modernism in the way Jacqueline Rose claims, children’s literature – and particularly in the form of the picturebook – has actively explored its concepts and styles, in the process providing precisely the kind of arena for radical experiments Dusinberre describes.
