Boundaries between children’s and adult’s literature

July 29, 2011

“The boundaries between ‘children’s literature’ and ‘adult literature’ have shifted historically and have alternated between the rigid and the permeable depending on the political and cultural climate.  Some adults feel so strongly the need to police this literary border that they attempt to erect a fence across its entire length.” (p117)
