By Anastasia Ulanowicz

Winner of the Children’s Literature organization publication Award


This e-book visits a number textual varieties together with diary, novel, and picturebook to discover the connection among second-generation reminiscence and modern children’s literature. Ulanowicz argues that second-generation reminiscence — trained through intimate family members relationships, textual mediation, and know-how — is characterised via vicarious, instead of direct, adventure of the prior. As such, children’s literature is very well-suited to the illustration of second-generation reminiscence, insofar as children’s fiction is especially invested within the transmission and replica of cultural reminiscence, and its shape promotes the formation of assorted advanced intergenerational relationships. extra, children’s books that depict second-generation reminiscence have the aptitude to problem traditional Western notions of selfhood and ethics. This learn exhibits how novels resembling Lois Lowry’s The Giver (1993) and Judy Blume’s Starring Sally J Freedman as Herself (1977) — either one of which function protagonists who adapt their elders’ stories into their very own mnemonic repertoires — implicitly reject Cartesian notions of the unified topic in desire of a view of identification as always-already social, relational, and dynamic in personality. This publication not just questions how and why second-generation reminiscence is represented in books for kids, yet no matter if such representations of reminiscence could be thought of 'radical' or 'conservative'. jointly, those analyses tackle an issue that has no longer been explored totally in the fields of children’s literature, trauma and reminiscence reports, and Holocaust stories.
