The Aesthetics of Children's Poetry

  • Publisher: Routledge

Taking Isaac Watts's Divine Songs (1715) as its point of departure, this collection gives sustained attention to the literary, aesthetic, theoretical, and philosophical dimensions of seminal works of children’s poetry from the eighteenth century to the present. While attending to central figures of children's poetry such as Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson, Christina Rossetti, A. A. Milne, and Carol Ann Duffy, the contributors also reassert the literary significance of landmark - though often marginalized - poetic works written during the past three centuries. In spite of the enduring association between poetry as a genre and childhood as a developmental stage, children's poetry has t...

A Child's Garden of Verses

This volume contains a compilation of delightful children’s poems written by Robert Louis Stevenson. This timeless treasury is ideal for introducing children to poetry, and it would make for a great addition to collections of related literature. The poems of this anthology include: “Bed in Summer”, “A Thought”, “At the Sea-Side”, “Young Night-Thought”, “Whole Duty of Children”, “Rain”, “Pirate Story”, “Foreign Lands”, “Windy Nights”, “Travel”, “Singing”, “Looking Forward”, “A Good Play”, and more. Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (1850 - 1894) was a famous Scottish essayist, novelist, poet, and travel writer whose famous works include "Treasure Island" and "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

British Children's Poetry in the Romantic Era

British Children's Poetry in the Romantic Era: Verse, Riddle, and Rhyme is a thorough study of secular children's verse between 1780 and 1835. Donelle Ruwe reveals the formula for Romantic-era children's poetry and considers the creation of a children's poetry canon, the rise of sentimental children's verse, the first verse-novel for children, and the fads for fantasy poems, rhyming puzzles, and versified study guides. Through in-depth historical research, Ruwe challenges the myths behind the significance of the groundbreaking Original Poems for Infant Minds and also explores the breakout hits from this collection, Ann Taylor's 'My Mother' and Adelaide O'Keeffe's 'The Use of Sight'. This book highlights the manuscript poems of Sara Coleridge, the challenging children's verse of Charlotte Smith, and the impact of Madame de Genlis, John Aikin, Elizabeth Turner, Rousseau, Barbauld, Watts, and Blake on the development of a children's poetry aesthetic.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

If you are a dreamer, come in, If you are a dreamer, A wisher, a liar, A hope-er, a pray-er, A magic bean buyer … Come in … for where the sidewalk ends, Shel Silverstein’s world begins. You’ll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist. Shel Silverstein’s masterful collection of poems and drawings is at once outrageously funny and profound.

Giggle Poetry Reading Lessons

Amy Buswell and Bruce Lansky's Giggle Poetry Reading Lessons turns struggling readers into happy readers — For Grades 2–5. Many struggling readers are embarrassed to read aloud. They are often intimidated or bored by texts that conventional programs require them to practice. So, instead of catching up, they fall further behind. Currently 67% of American fourth graders can’t read grade-level text. Reading specialist Amy Buswell has spent eight years looking for remediation methods that work. “What is needed,” Buswell explains, “is a program that improves the motivation of struggling readers, because that accounts for 90% of the problem.” Four years ago, Buswell came up with a br...
