Sample text

From our perspective it is difficult not to read it as a veiled representation of the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany. 31 The multiplicity of possible meanings is a symptom of the fable’s universality. Certainly it works as a general statement about the ease with which minorities can be blamed for disasters. The very slightly feasible allegation that the rabbits caused the earthquake quickly descends into the absurd contention ‘that carrot-nibblers with long ears cause floods’. The mordant humour (the ‘internal matter’ – a play on the rabbit’s edibility) adds to the effect.

8 The direct engagement with the child reader links Bunyan and Watts with the work of many of today’s children’s poets who are also usually anxious to speak of real life to real people, and who often use verse and illustration in conjunction, much like the emblem books. Indeed, Bunyan’s and Watts’ poetry lasted much longer than the strict Puritan religiosity from which it had arisen. After a steady start, Watts’ verse sold well even into the nineteenth century, inspiring William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience ( and ) and remaining well enough known in the s for it to be parodied in Lewis Carroll’s Alice books.
