Abstract

This essay locates Thomas Day's The History of Sandford and Merton: A Work Intended for the Use of Children (1787-1789) within eighteenth-century debates about childhood and children's literature. It begins by arguing that John Locke, in Some Thoughts Concerning Education (1693), both established the principles for a revolution in children's literature and brought into question the very possibility of such a literature.
