Please help me find resources and information about Good and Evil in children's literature. [more inside]
I am interested in literary works that discuss various substances like recreational drugs or pharmaceuticals. I am interested in anything with associations or references to philosophy, politics, religion, mind-expansion etc. Some examples of what I am looking for are Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' and Soma, or Dune and Melange. Any dystopia/utopia parallels, anticipations of the future, criticisms of drug culture, criticisms of pharmaceuticals, or allegories to anything substance related would be incredibly useful. This is a follow up of this thread: http://ask.metafilter.com/83142/Literary-works-anticipacting-the-future-trends
What literature anticipated future trends, but does not have a causal link? What did the literature anticipate? I'm thinking of 1984/USA politics and Neuromancer/Internet I'm looking for some good reading material about this subject; therefore, I'm looking for these literary instances, or even books based on this subject--including reference material, or websites.
Looking for resources and communities that help edit written work and offer feedback. I am looking for assistance with all forms of writing, such as poetry, essays, and short stories. I would of course be willing to offer my own feedback for other people's work. Does anyone have any recommendations?
I'm looking for literature analysis websites. Are there any suggestions for worthwhile sources? I've found a bunch of essay websites, but they seem conflicting or written by students. I'm looking for accurate information that will give me some new perspectives in a wide variety of literature. In time I would like to be able to teach more about hidden symbolism to other people including students. Right now I'm looking specifically for interpretations of Margaret Atwood's "A Handmaid's Tale" and George Orwell's "1984". Thanks in advance if anyone has any advice or tips.
