A Serious Genre: The Apology of Children’s Literature is a collection of essays by scholars and academics from Romania, the United States and Turkey, who investigate the value and impact of what, since the 19th century, has been called, using an umbrella term, children’s literature. The volume is the fourth in a series, which focuses on literary genres which are considered marginal or low-brow, but which have a long tradition and display remarkable versatility and popularity. Previous volumes in the collection presented the historical novel (2010), romance (2012), and fantasy (2014). In this book, fourteen essays approach children’s literature from different angles, from classical Victorian children’s books to the latest film adaptation of The Hobbit, from adult narrators of children’s stories to children narrators of adult stories. The book addresses researchers, teachers and students with an interest in literature, literary theory and genre analysis, but it will also appeal to the wider public, given the flexibility and friendly nature of children’s literature.
