Title:Insights and discoveries: Illuminating textual criticism
Author(s):Mercier, Cathryn M.
Subject(s):Textual criticism
Children's literature
Literary criticism
Abstract:Textual criticism two simple words that present a host of challenges. The topic immediately introduces the problems of relationship and emphasis. What arcane relationship connects these two words? Does textual criticism mean literary criticism? What roles does critical theory play in the practice, process, and products of criticism? And what roles does it play in the evaluation of children's books? Textual comes before criticism, so does focus fall on the text? Or, since textual modifies criticism, perhaps criticism should ground the discussion.
