The question and procedures of integrating children into wider society during the medieval and early modern period are debated across a wide range of contemporary texts, in both print and manuscript form. This study takes as its focus the ways in which vernacular literature (including English courtesy poems, incunabula and sixteenth-century printed household books, grammar school statutes, and pedagogic books) provided a guide to socialising children. The author examines how the transmission and reception of this literature, showing how patterns of thought changed during the period for parents, teachers, and young people alike; and places children and family reading networks into the context of debates on the history of childhood, and the history of the book.

Merridee L. Bailey is a lecturer at the Department of History, Australia National University.

Reviews

An important study of continuities and shifts in the literature that shaped children and attitudes toward children and young people in Late Medieval and sixteenth-century England. CHILDHOOD IN THE PAST, vol. 6, no. 2, September 2013

[M]akes a number of significant contributions to the existing historiography. [...] a well-researched and thoughtfully argued monograph which I hope receives significant attention from social and cultural historians of late medieval and early modern England. REVIEWS IN HISTORY
