Alice to the Lighthouse : Children's Books and Radical Experiments in Art

Description

Alice to the Lighthouse is the first book to argue connections between the development of early modern experimental writing, with special reference to Virginia Woolf, and children's literature. This challenging study offers new readings of Woolf's novels in the light of discussions of Carroll, Stevenson and E.Nesbit, and suggests links with the American tradition of Mark Twain, Willa Cather and Laura Ingalls Wilder.
