The course will examine some of the outstanding authors of Victorian children’s literature, starting with the traditional rhymes, chimes, and jingles of the Gems from Mother Goose, to Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens, Edward Lear, moving up to the end of the century when Dinah Mulock Craig, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, James Barrie, and Edith Nesbit became household words, because their works were read and enjoyed both by adults and children.

Then each student will deliver an oral presentation of the lesson and undergo examination on the contents of the course.
