Tove Jansson Rediscovered
Dalarna University, School of Languages and Media Studies, English.
2007 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The nineteen essays in the volume, contributed by leading scholars from around the world, discuss themes of artistic and personal identity, gender and sexuality, childhood and old age in Jansson's work. Jansson's writing for children and adults, her paintings, cartoon-strips and illustrations are explored in contexts such as her membership of the Swedish-speaking minority in Finland and her life as an island-dweller. Assembling scholarship in children's literature, women's writing, queer theory, linguistic analysis and reception studies, Tove Jansson Rediscovered updates the critical understanding of an extraordinary writer and artist.
