Hogwarts and All

Gothic Perspectives on Children`s Literature

€ 35.59


Hogwarts and All explores modern children`s literature from its origins in the nineteenth-century cult of childhood, a cultural movement inseparable from Christian theology. From the Kunstmärchen (adult fairy tales) of late-eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century German romanticism through Charles Dickens, J. R. R. Tolkien, and J. K. Rowling, this genre, like all gothic arts, has served as an alternative cultural perspective to that of scientific materialism. Its benignly subversive message is that a civilization that abandons its commitment to the childlike values of wonder, trust, sacrificial love, spontaneity, vulnerability, and faith in radical possibilities for peace, social justice, and human happiness - all qualities endorsed by Ray Bradbury, Susan Cooper, Madeleine L`Engle, and other authors discussed in this volume - is a civilization at risk.
