Book summary

In this innovative study Alan Richardson addresses issues in literary and educational history never examined together before. He argues that transformations in schooling and literacy in Britain between 1780 and 1832 helped shape the provision of literature as we now know it. Topics include definitions of childhood, educational methods and institutions, children's literature and female education. Richardson charts how social relations were transformed through reading and education, and Romantic texts are reinterpreted in the light of historical and social issues. [via]
