Textual Transformations in Children's Literature synopsis

This book introduces new critical approaches to studying adaptations, abbreviations, translations, parodies and mixes that take place internationally in contemporary children's culture. It follows recent shifts in adaptation studies calling for a transition beyond critique of sincerity, a model that measures the success of adaptation to the level of devotion to the “original” text, toward a methodology that considers adaptation always in conversation with the modified text.

This book visits the literature and culture of children in order to consider the general, educational and ideological foundations that drive both the process and the product. Focusing on novels as well as folktales, films, comic novels, and anime, the authors consider the challenges inherent in transforming the work of authors such as William Shakespeare, Charles Birolt, Lam Montgomery, Laura Inglis Wilder, and A.

Milne into new forms palatable to later masses especially when - for ideological or perceived political reasons - textual transformation is not only inevitable but absolutely necessary. Contributors consider the challenges inherent in transforming stories and characters from one type of text to another, across genres, languages ​​and time, and present a set of new models that will inform the future scholarship..
