|Tom's Home Children's Literature|
Three-hour, open-book exam. Answer TWO questions.
Do not use the same material in both answers. Do not make extensive use of texts that you have written on in your essays; avoid altogether the short texts and passages that were examined in lectures and workshops.
Since these are general questions you will have to write about at least two texts (but not more than three) in each of your answers.
There will be about 8 questions in the actual exam. They will be designed so that you can make use of any of the texts that we have studied in the class.
1. 'The nature of children's literature between its origins in the eighteenth century and the present has been completely transformed.' Discuss.
2. To what extent can children's literature be said to be concerned with inculcating ideas of gender difference in its readers?
