As a special part of literature, youth literature encompasses works which are, both thematically and structurally, dedicated to or adapted for children. In its development, youth literature has built a special world view and literary expression, from literature with emphasized didactic and pedagogical dimension to literature which recognizably talks about the world of children and their right for their own literature, with an experience free from any burdens.
The exsquisite body of youth literature includes stories (folk and artistic), fantastic stories, poetry, fables, different novel forms and youth adventure literature, as well as works of science-fiction. Youth literature has its own canonical names, from Grimm brothers and Andersen, to Twain, Kipling, F. Molnar, E. Kastner and contemporary children's and youth authors, Gaarder, Pullman, Rowling and others. Studying youth literature focuses on those names and works which have marked the development of this literature form, and have decisively influenced its esthetic emancipation and system of values.
