Empire in British Girls' Literature and Culture : Imperial Girls, 1880-1915 Hardback
Part of the Critical Approaches to Children's Literature series
While the gender and age of the girl may seem to remove her from any significant contribution to empire, this book provides both a new perspective on familiar girls' literature, and the first detailed examination of lesser-known fiction relating the emergence of fictional girl adventurers, castaways and 'ripping' schoolgirls to the British Empire.
