Expert Talk on “The Water Babies”

November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£10

With a focus on Linley Sambourne’s illustrations, but also including those of W.H. Robinson and Margaret Tarrant, the talk will look into the encoded messages of the tale’s illustrations and the cultural, scientific and social background they draw on, to illuminate the importance of fantasy in Kingsley’s fairy-tale and its visualizations.

In essence, the talk questions whether or not The Water-Babies is, really, a story for children.
