Online Talk: Victorian Children’s Literature: An Introduction – The Gaskell Girls Grow Up Reading by Prof Kim Reynolds

Victorian children’s literature gave us many of the classics we all know and love from A Secret Garden to Alice in Wonderland. But which books were in fashion when Elizabeth Gaskell’s children were growing up? What themes from Elizabeth Gaskell’s writing are also present in the children’s literature of the age? And as a mother to four daughters, what types of books might Elizabeth have read to her own children? Join Kim Reynolds, Professor of Children’s Literature at Newcastle University, to find out more.
