New Trends in Children's Literature Research

Twenty-first Century Approaches (2000-2012) from the University of Vigo (Spain)


Edited By Veljka Ruzicka Kenfel

The purpose of this volume is to present the scientific background of the Children’s Literature and Translation research group, which was established in 1992 at the University of Vigo. In 2006 it was awarded the category of Excellence Research Group. The scientific activities of members over the twenty years it has been in existence have contributed to improving and intensifying research into children’s literature in Spain and also to raising its scientific status. The group has strengthened collaboration with other Spanish universities and opened fruitful cooperation with foreign research centres. This book shows some new research lines we are focussing on and reflects current research trends in Children’s Literature in Spanish universities.

El Quijote for Children and Young Adults in German: An Approach to Proverbs in Children’s and Young Adult Literature


María Jesús Barsanti Vigo

In essence, when teaching children to read, when introducing them to Literature, the duty of educating consists in giving them the tools to be able to judge freely whether or not they feel «the need for books» For, while it is perfectly acceptable for an individual to reject literature, it is intolerable that he should be –or feel he is being – rejected by it. (Daniel Pennac, Como una novela)1
