Program

The course teaches what children's books are about. It stimulates to read deeper and in between the lines in order to discover and decipher the metaphores, the topoi, the archetypes, the symbols implicit in all literature and in particular in children's literature. It shows how many important, philosophical and anthropological themes are to be found in children's books. It reveals how children's books are, at their best, always a subversive literature, deeply critical of the grown-ups world, usually characterized by too rigid or too limited schemes, behaviours and perspectives. The course uses childrens' literature to help future teachers to discover the inner, and often otherwise unexpressed, world of childhood, with its peculiar visions, desires, dreams, needs and ways to be in the world.
