|Title:||The troubling wilderness : the psychological uses of the sublime and frontier in illustrated children’s books||Authors:||Lo, Yi Min||Keywords:||DRNTU::Humanities||Issue Date:||2016||Abstract:||The association between children and the natural world has been set as an antithesis towards human society, particularly the domestication that it espouses. Nature and the child are mutually represented, in a word, by wildness. This thesis is interested in investigating the relationship between children and wildness – specifically the wilderness. It will examine literature closely related to children – the award-winning picture book Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and Antoine Saint-Exupéry’s well-known illustrated novella The Little Prince as ecological texts. It argues that wilderness in these stories embody what William Cronon highlights as the two branches of definition, the sublime and the frontier to be conquered.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/67019||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
