    In: Contemporary Dystopian Fiction for Young Adults, 2013, Vol.93
    Description: Winner of the Children’s Literature Association Edited Book Award From the jaded, wired teenagers of M.T. Anderson's Feed to the spirited young rebels of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy, the protagonists of Young Adult dystopias are introducing a new generation of readers to the pleasures and challenges of dystopian imaginings. As the dark universes of YA dystopias continue to flood the market,Contemporary Dystopian Fiction for Young Adults: Brave New Teenagers offers a critical evaluation of the literary and political potentials of this widespread publishing phenomenon. With its capacity to frighten and warn, dystopian writing powerfully engages with our pressing global concerns: liberty and self-determination, environmental destruction and looming catastrophe, questions of identity and justice, and the increasingly fragile boundaries between technology and the self. When directed at young readers, these dystopian warnings are distilled into exciting adventures with gripping plots and accessible messages that may have the potential to motivate a generation on the cusp of adulthood. This collection enacts a lively debate about the goals and efficacy of YA dystopias, with three major areas of contention: do these texts reinscribe an old didacticism or offer an exciting new frontier in children's literature? Do their political critiques represent conservative or radical ideologies? And finally, are these novels high-minded attempts to educate the young or simply bids to cash in on a formula for commercial success? This collection represents a prismatic and evolving understanding of the genre, illuminating its relevance to children's literature and our wider culture.

    Description: When first published in 1888, the letters of Dorothy Osborne to William Temple - written between 1652 and 1654 - created a kind of cult phenomenon in the Victorian period. Osborne and Temple, both in their early twenties, shared a romance that was opposed by their families, and Osborne herself was almost constantly under surveillance. Osborne's letters provide a rare glimpse into an early modern woman's life at a pivotal point, as she tried to find a way to marry for love as well as fulfil her obligations to her family. Combining historical and biographical research with feminist theory, Carrie Hintz considers Osborne's vision of letter writing, her literary achievement, and her literary influences. Osborne has long been overlooked as a writer, making a comprehensive and thorough analysis long overdue. While the nineteenth-century reception of the letters is testament to the enduring public fascination with restrained love narratives, Osborne's eloquent and outspoken articulation of her expectations and desires also makes her letters compelling in our own time.

    Description: Peters takes as her starting point the discourses surrounding the political union between England and Scotland at the time of James I, articulating how the bond between the King and his subjects was rhetorically constructed as indissoluble. Because of the irreversible nature of marriage, it was subject to scrutiny before it was consummated, a process akin to the kinds of cultural scrutiny imposed on the union of England and Scotland before it was finalized. The second and third chapters investigate Charles I's inability to speak about union in the same language as James I, and the many ways in which the metaphor of a marriage between the people and their King shifted during the Civil War period into a discourse about the relationship between fathers and sons. The predominant methodology of the book is to investigate the ideas of a myriad of individual thinkers and writers. [...]the book reads as intellectual history or history of ideas rather than as cultural studies, but this focus on pure ideas allows the reader to compare disparate thinkers like Milton, Winstanley, Hobbes, Astell, among many others.

    Description: Reading Brathwait's text more closely as Luckyj does, it becomes clear that its classical models of silence are gendered male as often as they are gendered female. A particularly rewarding section on Anne Askew adds much to the scholarship on this figure by arguing for her 'convergence between residual notions of feminine silence and traditionally powerful masculine modes' (126). Since it was so varied in its meanings, early modern silence - while definitely gendered - could serve to destabilize gender roles throughout the period, and could become a source of power for women despite the fact that silence was often recommended to women as a means of denying them power. The book will almost certainly be of interest to scholars working on both male and female published authors of the early modern period.

    Description:   For this issue of Language Arts, we invited Dr. Eric Tribunella and Dr. Carrie Hintz, two researchers of children's and young adult literature and coauthors of Reading Children's Literature: A Critical Introduction (2013), to discuss the complexities that surround informational texts. The most famous example is Joanna Cole's Magic School Bus series (1985-2010), which Scholastic literally markets as science fiction despite its significant science content.
