Picture Books - LIT856

A broad aim of this unit is to survey the range of picture books produced for children and, in doing so, to examine the range of possible ways in which words and pictures can be combined to create narrative and to generate meaning. The unit examines the different ways in which pictures and words represent reality, construct narrative and communicate ideology, as well as focussing in more detail on aspects such as textual layout and composition, visual and verbal point of view strategies, strategies for depicting time, space, movement and stasis, style and genre.
