Описание: The thirteen short stories in this volume were written between 1924 and 1928, and are set in Europe and America. Eleven were collected in The Woman Who Rode Away (1928), though ‘The Man Who Loved Islands’ appeared in the American edition only and the other two in The Lovely Lady (1933). An unpublished fragment ‘A Pure Witch’ is also included here. The stories reflect Lawrence’s experiences in New Mexico, Mexico, Italy, Germany and England in the post-war period. Many were considerably revised by Lawrence after he first wrote them; some were completely rewritten and subsequently published in different versions. The editors give composition histories and discuss publication difficulties, including Compton Mackenzie’s objections to ‘The Man Who Loved Islands’. Appendices record manuscript revisions for three stories and give complete, unpublished early versions of four. Explanatory notes elucidate literary allusions and give topographical and biographical information.
Описание: The contributors to this anthology of short fiction have all submitted an original story, accompanied by an essay describing the challenges of the story and how they were met. We learn about the genesis of a story, what was relinquished and why a story might "insist" on changing.

Описание: 'Here is a worthy successor to Ted Hughes' "Poetry in the Making", the book that enabled me to gain the confidence to begin to find my own voice as a story
teller. "Children Writing Stories" confirms that we all have a story to tell if we are enabled to develop enough self-belief. So much of our natural creativity is smothered during our school
Teachers and children feel hemmed in by the strictures of a curriculum which simply does not allow room for creativity to breathe. Unlock the chains, let the light in, and
this is the kind of writing that will flow, this is the kind of intellectual and emotional growing that can transform young lives' - Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate 2003-2005.'What a
splendid book! Michael Armstrong pays attention - thirty years of it - to the stories that children write. We get two for one: the children's own delightful and intriguing work - I want to rush
off and write some Wally (age 5) stories of my own - and Michael Armstrong's intense interpretations' - Allan Ahlberg.
'This is real learning at its best, teaching by example,
through painstaking scrutiny of the art of young writers. Absorbing, moving, enlightening, inspiring' - Morag Styles, University of Cambridge.In "Children Writing Stories", Michael
Armstrong reveals the creative force of children's narrative imagination and shows how this develops through childhood. He provides a new and powerful understanding of the
significance of narrative for children's intellectual growth and for learning and teaching.
The book explores a series of real stories written by children between the ages of five
and fifteen, and traces the growth of literary consciousness from the dawn of written narrative in the kindergarten, through the early years of schooling and on into adolescence. Each
chapter opens with a story or stories, which the author then goes on to examine in detail, so that the book may be seen as bo
h a select anthology of children's stories and as a critical account of children's narrative practice. This original and provocative book will appeal to teachers, parents, students of
education and readers with an interest in literacy, children's writing or narrative theory.

As part of the ongoing project of retrieving women writers from the margins of literary and cultural history, scholars of literature, history, and gender studies are increasingly exploring and interrogating girls' print culture. School stories, in particular, are generating substantial scholarly interest because of their centrality to the history of girls' reading, their engagement with cultural ideas about the education and socialization of girls, and their enduring popularity with book collectors. However, while serious scholars have begun to document the vast corpus of English-language girls' school stories, few scholarly editions or facsimile editions of these novels and short stories are readily available.
Girls' School Stories in English, 1749-1929, a new title from Routledge and Edition Synapse's History of Feminism series, provides a vital resource to cater to this growing critical interest. This unique collection answers the important need to balance the historical record of canonical literature for young people in the nineteenth century and early twentieth century with popular fictions that had wide, devoted, and--following the emergence of school-series fiction--ongoing readerships. Moreover, existing scholarship has not yet explicated the connections between the British genre and its adaptation to colonial and American readerships, and one of the functions of this collection is to document the evolution of the girls' school-story genre in Britain to pinpoint the development and contestation of its signature tropes, and to trace the refinement and reproduction of these elements in Canadian, Australian, and American print cultures.
The six volumes in the collection cover the years 1749 to 1929, a temporal span designed to demonstrate the origins of the genre and its development throughout the Victorian and Edwardian eras. It concludes with works from the 1920s that coincide with a peak in the genre's popularity. And the thematic, rather than chronological, organization of the set allows users easily to compare and contrast (across time and place) school-story conventions and attitudes with issues such as women's higher education.
Volume I ('Moral Education') of the set draws attention to some of the earliest school stories published for girls in the eighteenth century, many of which situated moral improvement and rationality as the primary purpose of girls' education. Early stories, such as Dorothy Kilner's Anecdotes of a Boarding School; or, An Antidote to the Vices of those Establishments (1790), which is reproduced in full, were especially influenced by religious imperatives. While the overtly religious nature of these texts declined throughout the nineteenth century, the girls' school story continued to present a strong moral code based on honour and selflessness, which is shown in an excerpt from Canadian Ethel Hume Bennett's novel, Judy of York Hill (1922).
The girls' school story is typically one of transformation, in which the protagonist learns to conform to the rules and codes of school life. Volume II ('The New Girl'), therefore, focuses on the generic conventions associated with a new student arriving at school, in which the girl does not initially understand or comply with the expectations of teachers and peers. While it presents examples that adhere to the model of successful transformation, this volume also reproduces some striking instances where this trope is subverted. It includes the full text of noted school-story author L. T. Meade's Wild Kitty (1897), which depicts a 'wild Irish girl' protagonist who is unable to be tamed by the English school environment, as well as a story from the Australasian Girls' Annual, 'Vic and the Refugee' (1916), in which the new girl is revealed to be a spy.
Volume III ('Unruly Femininity') concentrates on girls who are disobedient, impul
