"Transcending Boundaries: Writing for a Dual Audience of Children and Adults" is a collection of essays on twentieth century authors who cross the borders between adult and children's literature and write for both audiences. In spite of the growing interest in the crossover phenomenon, it has received surprisingly little critical attention.
This collection of fourteen essays by scholars from eight countries constitutes the first book devoted to the art of crosswriting child and adult in twentieth century international literature.
"Transcending Boundaries" explores the multifaceted nature of crossover literature and the diverse ways in which writers cross the borders to address a dual readership of children and adults. The art of crosswriting child and adult is obviously not a new phenomenon. Since the boundaries between adult and children's fiction were first drawn in the mid eighteenth century, authors have been crossing them in both directions. Although earlier dual audience classics such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Pinocchio are mentioned in this volume, the emphasis is on post World War II literature. Transcending Boundaries explores the multifaceted nature of crossover literature and the diverse ways in which writers cross the borders to address a dual readership of children and adults. The shifting of boundaries between children's and adult fiction at the end of the twentieth century some critics to argue that the borders are not just changing, but disappearing altogether. Is the gloomy prediction of the death of children's literature, made by a few, merely a manifestation of fin de si cle or fin de millennium fears? Some critics claim, on the contrary, that the boundaries are becoming more pronounced and are being drawn with even greater precision, as the gap widens between children's and adult culture. What all critics seem to agree on, however, is the recent surge in border traffic in most Western countries. The essays in Transcending Boundaries clearly suggest that crossover literature is major, widespread trend that appears to be sharply on the rise. An increasing number of contemporary authors seek to efface all borders between children's and adult fiction with dual audience texts. In fact, the cross audienced phenomenon has become so widespread that a new word has been coined recently in some languages to refer to this literature for all ages. The shift away from distinct demarcations dictated by audience age seems to be one of the markers of the post postmodern age that is being ushered in with the new millennium. Perhaps the twenty first-century will bring an age in which child and adult are no longer defining categories and crosswriting is no longer seen as a transgressing or transcending of borders.
