I think that the failure not only of Children s Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child s mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind Children are first protected from their culture kept remote and safe and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory and we expected them not to blanch.
It has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing, not a simplification of the adult or a sillier take on the world Good Children s literature is some of the most difficult literature to write because one must challenge, engage, please, and awe a mind without resorting to archetypes or life experience.
Once a body grows old enough, we are all saddened by the thought of a breakup We have a set of knowledge and memories The pain returns to the surface Children are not born with these understandings, so to make them understand pain, fear, and loss is no trivial thing The education of children is the transformation of an erratic and hedonistic little beast into a creature with a rational method by which to judge the world.
A child must be taught not to fear monsters but to fear instead electrical outlets, pink slips, poor people, and lack of social acceptance The former is frightening in and of itself, the latter for complex, internal reasons I think the real reason that culture often fears sexuality and violence in children is because they are such natural urges We fear to trigger them because we cannot control the little beasts We cannot watch them every minute.
So, to write Children s Literature, an author must create something complex and challenging, something that the child can turn over in their mind without accidentally revealing some terrible aspect of the world that the child is not yet capable of dealing with Carroll did this by basing his fantasies off of complex, impersonal structures linguistics and mathematical theory These things have all the ambiguity, uncertainty, and structure of the grown up world without the messy, human parts.
This is also why the Alice stories fulfill another requirement I have for Children s Lit that it be just as intriguing and rewarding for adults There is no need to limit the depth in books for children, because each reader will come away with whatever they are capable of finding Fill an attic with treasures and the child who enters it may find any number of things put a single coin in a room and you ensure that the child will find it, but nothing.
Of course, we must remember that nothing we can write will ever be strange or disturbing to a child than the pure, unadulterated world that we will always have failed to prepare them for However, perhaps we can fail a little less and give them Alice Not all outlets are to be feared, despite what your parents taught you In fact, some should be prodded with regularity, and if you dare, not a little joy.
To purge myself from the impact of a controversial book that I read recently All the Ugly and Wonderful Things I tried to go back in time and read something for fun I m glad to say the experiment was successful as the reading experience was stellar to a T In fact something happened that didn t happen ever before.
What happened was that I enjoyed this book s poetry for once It was a nonsensical poem but very funny.
Alice folded her hands, and beganYou are old, Father William, the young man said, And your hair has become very white And yet you incessantly stand on your head Do you think, at your age, it is right In my youth, Father William replied to his son, I feared it might injure the brain But, now that I m perfectly sure I have none, Why, I do it again and again Alice in Wonderland attracted me in my childhood That was the first time I read about the bird called the Dodo The Dodo is the emblem of my country, so I simply loved its appearance I also loved the crazy characters herein Some are impactful than others but all are memorable That s it I don t have much to say This is my most beloved classic.
Well, if you really love this book, please do not read on I really did not enjoy the book, and I m a little surprised that it s considered a classic The one thing I did enjoy was that there were many imaginative scenes all of the different places that she went, like the tea party, the garden, etc But, the characters were drawn very poorly they were simply drawn, and most were just annoying even Alice Most of the characters in the great wonderland were either cruel, mean or contrary or didn t make any sense I would not have a child read this either It s probably written for ages 5 7, but the dialogue doesn t make much sense, and with the constant threats of beheading and other such scenes, I recommend that no child read it I m sure the movies are better if you could take the imaginative scenes that were painted and create much better characters, I think it would be great The characters were my biggest disappointment no development, and just annoying.
Oh yeah, and Alice s constant back and forth with making herself grow bigger or smaller gets old
