en Limba Engleză Hardback – 12 May 2016
The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby is a children's novel by the Reverend Charles Kingsley. Written in 1862-1863 as a serial for Macmillan's Magazine, it was first published in its entirety in 1863. The book was extremely popular during its day, and was a mainstay of children's literature through the 1920s. The protagonist is Tom, a young chimney sweep, who falls into a river after encountering an upper-class girl named Ellie and being chased out of her house. There he dies and is transformed into a "water baby," as he is told by a caddis fly - an insect that sheds its skin - and begins his moral education. The story is thematically concerned with Christian redemption, though Kingsley also uses the book to argue that England treats its poor badly, and to question child labour, among other themes.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

The story follows Tom in his land-life as a climbing boy for a chimney-sweep and in his after-life as a water-baby, where he gains redemption from selfishness as well as from drudgery. On to this fantasy Kingsley grafts a series of digressions and comic asides, through which he comments on a range of contemporary issues. Kingsley ostensibly wrote The Water-Babies for his infant son, but its erratic flights of fancy are liable to take it beyond the immediate comprehension of adults and children alike. Often seen as an attack on the exploitation of child labour, it is rather a heterogeneous commentary on Kingsley's life and times. He writes with vibrant and humorous symbolism, fierce satire, and uninhibited imagination. This is the first edition to explore fully Kingsley's text, its variants, and its iconography, and to annotate the many references which enrich the story.

Notă biografică

Charles Kingsley was a priest of the Church of England, university professor, historian and novelist. The Water-Babies was his most famous novel and was originally written and published as a serial in Macmillan's Magazine from 1862--1863 before being published in its entirety as a book in 1863. Charles Kingsley had a special relationship with Macmillan and was godfather to Daniel Macmillan's son Maurice and Alexander Macmillan's son Malcolm. It was while Alexander was staying with him at Eversley in June 1862 that Kingsley told him about The Water-Babies. Mabel Lucie Attwell was a British illustrator known for her drawings of children, based on her daughter, Peggy. She studied at Heatherley's and St Martin's School of Art before illustrating for magazines and books, including Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and The Water-Babies.


Recenzii

With an introduction that attends to all the eccentricities of book and author, this new edition reveals Kingsley as a progressive thinker who embraced evolutionary theory and championed environmental causes even as he perpetuated stereotypes and trumpeted stale moral pieties.
