This book examines the fairy-tale as a significant influence on place in the literature. The rapid development of children's fiction in the nineteenth century occurred shortly after the widespread circulation of fairy tales. Fairy tales are a particularly concrete, visual, and cinematic form of writing, a genre in which place plays a significant role. Children's authors use fictional landscapes in a variety of traditional and innovative ways to create compelling, powerful texts.
