              A Made-Up Place: New Zealand in Young Adult Fiction
                 

              A Made-Up Place: New Zealand in Young Adult Fiction (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Jackson, Anna; Miles, Geoffrey; Ricketts, Harry; Schaefer, Tatjana; Walls, Kathryn

              "Most New Zealand writing for young adults is designed to appeal to adolescents everywhere. Is there anything, then, that is characteristically 'New Zealand' about it? To what extent does it derive from local experience, or address a local audience? Focusing on a series of overla...pping topics (race, sport, money, history, Englishness, future fictions, utopias and dystopias, religion and the 'Maori Gothic'), the contributors to this volume suggest that 'New Zealandness' is a sutble, at time almost invisible, but nevertheless pervasive concern in New Zealand young adult fiction"--Back cover.

              The kimono is the ultimate symbol of Japan, revered within the country as the embodiment of national culture and regarded internationally as an exotic fascination. The iconic garment is often viewed as traditional, unchanging and timeless, but this book counters that conception, ...presenting the kimono as highly dynamic and fashionable dress.

              The Victorians and Edwardians created a cult of adolescence as significant as the Romantic cult of childhood, positing adolescence as a liminal period between childhood and adulthood, a time that adults could remember nostalgically but which for children leaving home represented ...a terrifying immersion into a hierarchical and authoritarian world.

              Diary Poetics: Form and Style in Writers' Diaries, 1915-1962
               

              Diary Poetics: Form and Style in Writers' Diaries, 1915-1962 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The diary is a genre that is often thought of as virtually formless, a capacious hold-all for the writer's thoughts, and as offering unmediated access to the diarist's true self. Focusing on the diaries of Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf, Antonia White, Joe Orton, John Cheeve...r, and Sylvia Plath, this book looks at how six very different professional writers have approached the diary form with its particular demands and literary potential. As a sequence of separate entries the diary is made up of both gaps and continuities, and the different ways diarists negotiate these aspects of the diary form has radical effects on how their diaries represent both the world and the biographical self. The different published editions of the diaries by Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath show how editorial decisions can construct sometimes startlingly different biographical portraits. Yet all diaries are constructed, and all diary constructions depend on how the writer works with the diary form.
