Adventures on Windswept Islands: Children's Literature, Adolescence, and the Possibilities of Irish Culture in the Work of Eilís Dillon.

Rea, Jennifer Anne 01 May 2011 (has links)
Eilís Dillon, in her young adult novels, evokes to her readers rich images: wind blowing in off the cold and vast Atlantic Ocean over the rugged landscape of rocks and stone-walls with ancient forts inhabiting the highest points, and thatched roof houses squat and solid against nature. This dissertation will explore the multifaceted position of the fictional child, the reader and adult as they each encounter exhilarating adventure on Dillon's windswept islands. The connection between the fictional child in, and the child reader of, the world of Eilís Dillon's Irish children's novels illustrates the capacity for young adult literature to be an effective means of conveying problematic ideas to a young audience. Eilís Dillon uses the nostalgic realism of her west coast island stories to preserve, while at the same time critique, her native Ireland. This will be analyzed through examination of the interrelationship between the fictional children that provide the narrative voice, the child reader, and the adult author. At the same time this dissertation will discuss Dillon's relationship to her contemporaries and subsequently, her relationship to children's fiction coming out of Ireland. Dillon's nostalgic realism which enhances the image of rural Irish island life is at the heart of what scholars past and present take from Dillon's body of work.

U.S. Landmark Books, 1950-1956: An analysis and evaluation

Unknown Date (has links)
"In order to determine if the publishers have succeeded in their stated aims and objectives in publishing the Landmark series, a study will be made, first, of the features of those books released between 1950-1956, inclusive; second, of their authorship; third, of evidences of their success. In adjudging the books, first, an analysis will be made to determine the extent of their coverage of the primary periods in American history. Second, consideration will be given to the form of presentation of the material by considering the books according to where each would fit into the conventional library classification system. Third, an analysis of the reading and interest levels of the books will be made to determine if they are considered by other authorities as suitable for elementary and junior high. Fourth, the format will be studied and evaluated according to the criteria set up by Miss Larrick and the claims of the publishers with some consideration of the illustrations and of such splendid features as indexes and bibliographies"--Introduction. / "August, 1957." / At the head of title: Florida State University. / Typescript. / "Submitted to the Graduate Council of Florida State University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts." / Advisor: Robert Clapp, Professor Directing Paper. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 68-70).

Australian culture in children's literature : reflections and transmissions

Reeder, Stephanie Owen, n/a January 1981 (has links)
In this study of the relationship between children's literature and Australian culture I make a close textual analysis of the works of Ivan Southall, Eleanor Spence, Colin Thiele and Patricia Wrightson. This analysis is based on a framework of areas of culture as defined in anthropological terms, and includes such categories as the Environment, Social Organization, the Life Cycle, the Family and World View. Each author's work is analysed according to this framework. In a final section on each author I draw together the themes and developments in each author's writing and discuss the cultural insights they provide. In these textual analyses the emphasis is on identifying the culture which these authors reflect in the twenty to twenty-five year period in which they have been writing. I am also interested in identifying those cultural values which the authors promote or attempt to transmit to their readers. In the final chapter I undertake a comparative analysis. First I identify the areas of overlap or of greatest concern on which the four authors focus. These I identify as the Environment, the Family, Adolescence, Consumerism, the 'Other' Australians and Religion. I then compare these areas of focus and the attitudes and cultural values which the four authors reflect and transmit in these areas, with generalizations revealed in other interpretative analyses of Australian culture, including those of Craig McGregor and Ronald Conway. The result of this comparative analysis is striking in terms of the significant aspects of Australian culture which all the authors reflect. At the same time they bring their own personal perspectives to bear on the cultural values which they seek to transmit.
