The Conspiracy of the Text : The Place of Narrative in the Development of Thought, Hardback Book

The Conspiracy of the Text : The Place of Narrative in the Development of Thought Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literary Theory series

Description

In The Conspiracy of the Text, first published in 1986, Jeff Adams looks at an early stage in childhood to examine the ways in which children create social organisation and moral order.

Adams shows how certain narratives, such as fairy tales, serve as a foundation for this system, and does this through a fascinating linguistic analysis of a young girl's reading of her favourite fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.

This title will be of interest to students of literary theory and linguistics.
