updated: 
Saturday, January 26, 2013 - 2:55pm

The Victorian era embraced the notion that childhood should be set aside as a time of unbridled play and fantasy, separate from the adult world of work. Yet the worlds of childhood and adulthood were constantly blurring within and alongside books for both kinds of audiences: Catherine Robson notes the presence of men in Wonderland, and Claudia Nelson has recently shown that "precocious children" and "childish adults" populate Victorian literature.
