Retelling Stories: Sources of Children's Literature - LIT846

This unit focuses on the retelling of traditional stories, mainly drawn from European cultures, as a significant endeavour in Anglophone children's literature. It examines how the retelling of, in particular, classical myths, Bible stories, heroic legends, Arthurian romances and 'oriental' tales discloses the aspirations of society and the values it wishes to convey to children.
