Towards Discourse in the Public Domain: adolescent fictions in moral and political education

Journal of Moral Education 23 (4):439-450 (1994)
Abstract The article argues the value of contemporary adolescent fictions in Moral Education, on grounds not of content but of their treatments of moral and political issues. Two contrasting models, based on the literary concepts of ?realistic? and ?modern? forms of narrative, are used to highlight the stylistic and structural distinctiveness of these contemporary texts??and to make clear their appropriateness for a Moral Education which involves not only induction into public life, but also into the discourse of the public domain. Four contemporary texts, dealing with aspects of public life, and exemplifying a broad range of sub?genres and treatments, are then examined in the light of this perspective, and a summary statement of their particular features is made to justify their appropriateness for a critical Moral Education
