Devise a topic and thesis from the subject area below. Think of your topic as a question you are trying to answer, and your thesis as your potential answer to that question. Whatever your subject, you will need to take advantage of outside sources — articles, books, other critique — to support your argument, and you must append a list of these sources — roughly a handful (4-6), not counting fiction. See further advice on research below.

Each paper is about 1500 words, approximately five pages double-spaced in 12-point font.

The focus for the final paper will be children’s literature of the late 19th and early 20th century through the decade following the Golden Age.

  1. Select a children’s book published between 1890 and 1927 that we have not read and argue a thesis about it. Examples: Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Grahame’s A Wind in the Willows, Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh. (If you choose Pooh, be careful about research sources. Frederick Crews’s Pooh Perplex was satire; The Tao of Pooh is old New Age philosophy, and the recent theory that the characters are models of childhood disorders can’t be seriously argued as literary critique.)
