Childness and the Writing of the German Past: Tropes of Childhood in Contemporary German Literature - Studies in Modern German and Austrian Literature 1 (Hardback)Nora Maguire (author)
- We can order this
The term `childness' is here modified and developed to establish a new theoretical frame of reference for literary childhood. The encounter between the adult reader and the fictional child is understood as one marked by complex and intense forms of desire, conducive to revision, mourning, nostalgia and defamiliarization. Through this framework, the study casts new light on the fictional child as a focal point of ideology and desire.
