Works about this Work

y Environmental Crisis in Young Adult Fiction : A Poetics of Earth Alice Curry , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2013 Z1939206 2013 single work criticism This pioneering study is the first full-length treatment of feminism and the environment in children's literature. Drawing on the history, philosophy and ethics of ecofeminism, it examines the ways in which post-apocalyptic landscapes in young adult fiction reflect contemporary attitudes towards eco-crisis and human responsibility. Identifying the neoliberal discourses of individualism and self-advancement that 'feminise' categories lying outside the parameters of the adult white male, it explores the ways in which contemporary young adult authors attempt to develop a sustainable ethic of care that can encompass 'feminised' peoples and spatialities, including nonhumans and the environment. With particular reference to the ways in which global processes are mapped onto the local landscape, it advocates a poetics of earth to replace the disengaged planetary consciousness often engendered through crisis. Discussing a range of contemporary texts and authors, this study lays forth various transformative responses to eco-crisis at a time of escalating global concern over the environment.

y New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature: Utopian Transformations Clare Bradford , Kerry Mallan , John Stephens , Robyn McCallum , Houndmills : Palgrave Macmillan , 2008 Z1559477 2008 selected work criticism 'New World Orders shows how texts for children and young people have responded to the cultural, economic, and political movements of the last 15 years. With a focus on international children's texts produced between 1988 and 2006, the authors discuss how utopian and dystopian tropes are pressed into service to project possible futures to child readers. The book considers what these texts have to say about globalisation, neocolonialism, environmental issues, pressures on families and communities, and the idea of the posthuman.' - Back cover.
