Description

This groundbreaking study introduces and explores LacanOCOs complex theories of subjectivity and desire through close readings of canonical childrenOCOs books such as CharlotteOCOs Web, Stellaluna, Holes, Tangerine, and The Chocolate War, providing an introduction to an increasingly influential body of difficult work while making the claim that childrenOCOs textual encounters are as significant as their existential ones in constituting their subjectivities and giving shape to their desires."show more
