  • Introduction
    • Abstract: In this issue of The Lion and Unicorn, we spend time with YA literature and its explorations of identity and culture as well as the history of the theory wars of the 1980s and 1990s in the field of children's literature.Jon Heggested's insightful essay, "'We Taught You How to Dance': Cultural Inheritance in David Levithan's Two Boys Kissing," examines the recent paths that modern YA queer literature has been pursuing. Surveying the recent trends in YA narratives, Heggested focuses on Levithan's novel as a model of what he terms "visions of futurity" for the subgenre as a whole. Heggested's essay is not so much a critical reading of Levithan's novel as a demonstration of the way the novel has adapted to shifting ... Read More

  • "We Taught You How to Dance": Cultural Inheritance in David Levithan's Two
           Boys Kissing
    • Abstract: What does queer futurity look like'1 According to José Esteban Muñoz, queerness itself is always found on the horizons. Following Muñoz's trajectory of a queer future that is found "then and there," this essay proposes that queer YA literature functions as a beacon on this distant horizon. In addition to the visions of queer futurity that YA texts offer, these works might also be viewed as the vessels that can transport us there. In this essay, I focus on David Levithan's Two Boys Kissing (2013), examining the paths toward a queer future that this work sets out. Finally, I identify a number of ways in which queer YA texts fall short in the visions of futurity they extend, looking to Levithan's novel as a means of ... Read More

  • Painting Bison on Cave Walls: Andrew Smith's Grasshopper Jungle and the
           Potential of Unnatural Narratology
    • Abstract: Andrew Smith's Grasshopper Jungle begins with a note to the reader that announces its status as metafiction:Ealing, Iowa, is a fictional town. None of the characters and places in this book actually exist. Any similarities between events and characters to actual history only occur in the true portions of this book, which aren't many.These sentences, as Patricia Head writes of metafiction, offer a "reflect[ion] on the nature of storymaking itself" (29) by drawing attention to the literary devices of setting and character deployed in the rendering of the novel's story. Indeed, throughout Smith's novel—the tale of the inadvertent release of McKeon Industries Plague Strain 412E and the subsequent transformation of a ... Read More

  • The Grand Inquisitor for Children: Rejecting Sadism and Masochism in A
           Wrinkle in Time
    • Abstract: [I]magine that you yourself are building the edifice of human destiny with the object of making people happy in the finale, of giving them peace and rest at last, but for that you must inevitably and unavoidably torture just one tiny creature … and raise your edifice on the foundation of her unrequited tears—would you agree to be the architect on such conditions' Tell me the truth.In this passage from Fyodor Dostoevsky's 1880 novel The Brothers Karamazov, Ivan Karamazov is pushing his brother Alyosha, a novice at a monastery, to speak to a perennial problem in the Christian tradition: why is there suffering in a world created and governed by a good deity' Ivan sharpens the question by detailing cases of cruelty to ...

  • Agency in Absentia: Child Authorship under Racial Oppression in The Me
           Nobody Knows
    • Abstract: "Dear Mr. Grady. … I've been thinking and writing a book on my life. I wonder what would become of it, how many pages would I get'" Audiences at the 1970–71 hit musical, The Me Nobody Knows, heard José Fernandez voice these words in the character of Carlos.1 Though Fernandez was a professional actor on a typical Broadway stage, the words he spoke had a more unusual status: they came from a letter sent by an incarcerated teenaged boy, C. R., to a former teacher. The Mr. Grady correspondence reminded audiences that unlike other Broadway hits, The Me Nobody Knows was a staging of words written mostly by African American and mainland Puerto Rican children. Even as his letters graced the stage, however, C. R. likely ... Read More

  • "Not Usually a Gawker": Fame, Notoriety, and Austenian Youth Culture
    • Abstract: At a nineteenth-century academic conference a few years ago, another female scholar and I spoke with a male scholar about our work. When I mentioned I worked on Jane Austen, the male scholar said, quite disbelievingly, "What does Austen write about other than romance'" The female scholar and I looked at each other in shock and, completely unplanned, both said at the same time, "Well, money." When the male scholar expressed more disbelief, we launched into quite the impassioned tale of the Bennet sisters, close to homelessness, and the Bennet mother, desperate for her daughters. What Austen writes as comedy, we said, was actually a bitter truth for so many women in the nineteenth century. Too middle class to go to ... Read More

  • The Theory Wars Revisited: Rose and the Reading Critics vs. the Liberal
           Humanists
    • Abstract: in Italy, for thirty years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love, they had five hundred years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce' The cuckoo clock.I have begun this article with the renowned Third Man quotation because, during the famous "theory wars," which were fought most fiercely by the big powers at a time when poststructuralism was in the ascendant (1970s–80s), children's literature studies was often seen to be in the position of Switzerland: a cozy and pacific enclave. However, although often forgotten about today, the discipline did have its own, lesser ... Read More

  • Conversations with Madeleine L'Engle ed. by Jackie C. Horne (review)
    • Abstract: A welcome addition to the Literary Conversations Series under the general editorship of Monika Gehlawat, children's literature historian Jackie Horne's collection of print and radio interviews with Madeleine L'Engle spans from 1967—four years after she won the Newbery medal for A Wrinkle in Time—to 2006, within a year of L'Engle's death at the age of eighty-eight. Horne's media sources for the thirteen, chronologically ordered interviews vary widely, from journals like Children's Literature in Education, to recordings from an oral history course at Columbia University, to the Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation; from the C.S. Lewis Summer Institute on the Christian and the Imagination, to Leonard S. Marcus's The Wand and ... Read More

  • Playing with the Book: Victorian Movable Picture Books and the Child
           Reader by Hannah Field (review)
    • Abstract: The central argument of Playing with the Book is that sustained attention to Victorian movable books challenges scholars of children's literature, especially picture books, to acknowledge the significance of form over content in understanding how children make meaning with books. Hannah Field approaches the movable book as a technological phenomenon, enabled by advances in paper engineering and other related fields, and places it in the context of Victorian visual culture. Playing with the Book draws on a diverse range of materials from the Opie Collection of Children's Literature, supplemented by other archival sources. Field advocates for a research methodology that builds upon Leah Price's How to Do Things with ... Read More

  • British Hymn Books for Children, 1800–1900: Re-Tuning the History of
           Childhood by Alisa Clapp-Itnyre (review)
    • Abstract: In a field in which the traditional point of origin is not an author or a text but the publisher John Newbery, Alisa Clapp-Itnyre's study makes a vital intervention in literary historiography by adroitly considering the material and literary histories of a print genre. Hymns are the focus here, but Clapp-Itnyre's unit of analysis is more precisely the hymnbook, the bound collection of hymn texts that supplied homes, schools (from public to Ragged to Sunday), church ministries, and social reform movements with material for children as well as adults. Rivaled only by almanacs and Bibles as the dominant print genre of the nineteenth century in Britain, hymnbooks have long been the elephant in the room, hugely popular ... Read More

  • Posthumanism in Young Adult Fiction: Finding Humanity in a Posthuman World
           ed. by Anita Tarr and Donna R. White (review)
    • Abstract: This new collection, edited by Anita Tarr and Donna R. White, represents the first full-length critical exploration of posthumanist theory in children's literature to be published since Zoe Jaques' 2015 Children's Literature and the Posthuman. Unlike Jacques' study, however, which explores a broad range of classic children's literature, this volume focuses only on contemporary and recently published works of speculative fiction for young adult readers, including work on authors who are less well-represented in other critical explorations of speculative fiction, such as Michael Grant, Lev Grossman, and Marissa Meyer. This focus on recently published popular works is, in fact, one of the key strengths of this ... Read More

  • Mental Illness in Young Adult Literature: Exploring Real Struggles through
           Fictional Characters by Kia Jane Richmond (review)
    • Abstract: Kia Jane Richmond's Mental Illness in Young Adult Literature: Exploring Real Struggles through Fictional Characters provides an introductory overview to young adult (YA) novels that prominently feature representations of mental illness. As Richmond makes clear in her introduction, this study is a response to the influx of YA literature featuring mental illness; as such, it builds "on this renaissance of research focused on mental illness issues in young adult literature, categorizing and explaining how mental disorders (and the characters who have them) are portrayed in 21st-century young adult literature" (7). Although this book certainly appeals to a broad range of scholars interested in children's literature and ... Read More
