“I am not blind to the worth of the wonderful gift of “Leaves Of Grass.” I find it the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed. I am very happy in reading it, as great power makes us happy.”
I have this problem. I don’t understand the culture of YA Literature. When i worked at a library in college, i was shocked to discover we had a Young Adult section full of authors i’d never heard of, for a target audience that is still unknown to me. Now, i did read every RL Stine book in 4th and 5th grade. But immediately after that it was Thoreau Eliot Tennyson Salinger. Catcher in the Rye and The Lady of Shalott were my YA Literature.
What is the significance of Young Adult literature? What books were important to you then? Are they still important to you now?
