« J’ai été dans un autre monde et j’en suis revenu. Écoutez-moi. » Conte d’hiver est une ode à la ville que l’on traverse comme le temps, où l’on se promène à la fin du xixe siècle et autour de l’an 2000. C’est un New York fantasmé, peuplé de personnages étranges et fascinants : un cheval qui vole, un tatoueur orphelin, une femme amoureuse des mots, un gang féroce et des hommes qui rêvent d’« une ville parfaitement juste ». C’est aussi l’histoire d’un amour fou entre un voleur magnifique et une jeune fille fortunée qui, pour s’aimer, devront braver les conventions sociales et les limites de la mort. Il y a tout cela dans Conte d’hiver : la folie, le rêve, le fantastique, le comique, l’invention poétique. Un roman inclassable sous l’influence de Dick et Dickens.

We are fascinated by text and we are fascinated by reading. Is this because we are in a time of textual change? Given that young people always seem to be in the vanguard of technological change, questions about what and how they read are the subject of intense debate. Children as Readers in Children’s Literature explores these questions by looking at the literature that is written for children and young people to see what it tells us about them as readers. The contributors to this book are a group of distinguished children’s literature scholars, literacy and media specialists who contemplate the multiple images of children as readers and how they reflect the power and purpose of texts and literacy. Contributors to this wide-ranging text consider: How books shape the readers we become Cognitive and affective responses to representation of books and reading The relationship between love-stories and reading as a cultural activity Reading as ‘Protection and Enlightenment’ Picturebooks as stage sets for acts of reading Readers’ perceptions of a writer This portrayal of books and reading also reveals adults’ beliefs about childhood and literacy and how they are changing. It is a theme of crucial significance in the shaping of future generations of readers given these beliefs influence not only ideas about the teaching of literature but also about the role of digital technologies. This text is a must-read for any individual interested in the importance of keeping literature alive through reading.

Why are so many literary texts preoccupied with food? The Literature of Food explores this question by looking at the continually shifting relationship between two sorts of foods: the real and the imagined. Focusing particularly on Britain and North America from the early 19th century to the present, it covers a wide range of issues including the politics of food, food as performance, and its intersections with gender, class, fear and disgust. Combining the insights of food studies and literary analysis, Nicola Humble considers the multifarious ways in which food both works and plays within texts, and the variety of functions-ideological, mimetic, symbolic, structural, affective-which it serves. Carefully designed and structured for use on the growing number of literature of food courses, it examines the food of modernism, post-modernism, the realist novel and children's literature, and asks what happens when we treat cook books as literary texts. From food memoirs to the changing role of the servant, experimental cook books to the cannibalistic fears in infant picture books, The Literature of Food demonstrates that food is always richer and stranger than we think.
