Chapter Summary

Looking at children’s exile literature through a gender perspective offers an explanation for the fact that this part of exile history is still widely ignored. The gender perspective also invites us to take the narratological differentiation between the narration and the narrated earnestly. Literary texts are not only representations of gender roles. They are also productive discourse performances in historical contexts. Furthermore the text itself is a discourse field in which negotiations of norms take place. The following article shows the possibilities of gender theory for the analysis of historical literary texts, especially children’s exile literature and other genres which are not regarded as autonomous works of art.
