About the book:

In this lucid book, Lissa Paul writes with insight and authority about a matter all English teachers will find compelling: how the ways we analyze and teach literature shape our views and expectations of the world.

Paul urges us to give the texts we teach sensitive multiple readings. She points out that variant versions and different editions of classic children's stories hold different meanings. From a feminist perspective, Paul considers such questions as : whose story is this? who is the reader? when and where was the reading produced? who is named and who is not? who gets punished and who gets praised? who speaks and who is silent? who acts and who is acted upon? who looks and who is observed? who fights for honor and who suffers?

This accessible book will sharpen literary sensibilities and enhance our teaching by making us more responsive to such key questions.
