Lambirth, Andrew (2007) Poetry under control: social reproduction strategies and children’s literature. English in Education, 41 (3). pp. 94-107. ISSN 0425-0494 (doi:10.1111/j.1754-8845.2007.tb01168.x)Full text not available from this repository.
This paper arose from research into a class of 11-year-olds’ relationships with poetry. The paper describes how by analysing the children’s comments about poetry it became clear that their parents were active in rigorously selecting, censoring and generally controlling the children’s reading diet, most markedly with poetry, md that patterns began to emerge of how they went about this task. In an analysis drawing on Ball and Vincent’s (2005) work it became clear that processes of social reproduction were at work.
