Deleuze in Children’s Literature
By (author) Jane Newland
Jane Newland explores how Deleuzian concepts can enhance and invigorate our readings of this literature, whose implied readership masks much paradox. She focuses on children’s texts by some of the authors who fascinate Deleuze, including Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Lewis Carroll, Andre Dhotel, Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clezio and Michel Tournier, as well as Deleuze’s own children’s book, L’oiseau philosophie (The Philosophy Bird). The authors are explored across chapters on central Deleuzian concepts: pure repetition, becoming, cartographies, stuttering and nonsense.
