    In: Picturing the Wolf in Children's Literature, 2012-12-06
    Description: From the villainous beast of “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Three Little Pigs,” to the nurturing wolves of Romulus and Remus and Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book , the wolf has long been a part of the landscape of children’s literature. Meanwhile, since the 1960s and the popularization of scientific research on these animals, children’s books have begun to feature more nuanced views. In Picturing the Wolf in Children’s Literature , Mitts-Smith analyzes visual images of the wolf in children’s books published in Western Europe and North America from 1500 to the present. In particular, she considers how wolves are depicted in and across particular works, the values and attitudes that inform these depictions, and how the concept of the wolf has changed over time. What she discovers is that illustrations and photos in works for children impart social, cultural, and scientific information not only about wolves, but also about humans and human behavior. First encountered in childhood, picture books act as a training ground where the young learn both how to decode the “symbolic” wolf across various contexts and how to make sense of “real” wolves. Mitts-Smith studies sources including myths, legends, fables, folk and fairy tales, fractured tales, fictional stories, and nonfiction, highlighting those instances in which images play a major role, including illustrated anthologies, chapbooks, picture books, and informational books. This book will be of interest to children’s literature scholars, as well as those interested in the figure of the wolf and how it has been informed over time.

    Description: The wolf has been an object of analysis across a range of disciplines. The symbolic wolf is present in our language, images, and stories. It has been studied by folklorists, literary scholars, psychologists, sociologists, and historians. Since the mid-twentieth-century real wolves have been studied by scientists while social scientists and historians have examined the controversy surrounding efforts to protect and re-introduce the wolf. Many of these scholars point to the interconnectedness of the symbolic and real and argue that the negative image of the wolf in European and Euro-American lore and tales contributed to the fear and hatred that led to the extermination of the wolf throughout Europe and the United States. At the same time, they tie the real wolf's physical appearance to its success as an environmental cause. Yet save for studies on "Little Red Riding Hood," no one has performed a close analysis of European tales and fables featuring the wolf or studied its visual depiction. My study, which considers representations of symbolic and real wolves in children's books published in Europe and North America from the late-fifteenth-century to the present, fills these gaps. Focusing on how visual images impart social, cultural, and scientific information about both wolves and humans, I analyze over 200 illustrated editions of traditional and fractured tales, animal stories, and informational books featuring wolves. In addition to developing a typology of visual depictions of the wolf, my study reveals several motifs: the wolf as predator, the wolf as social being, and the wolf as victim. This expanded view of the wolf and nature is accompanied by changes in the ways in which we view ourselves.
