‘Mirror Mirror in the Book, May I Have a Closer Look?’: On mirrors and reflections in contemporary adolescent fiction

jennifer Breithoff

Before focussing on the three selected novels just mentioned, the subsequent analysis will see to a brief but necessary history of the mirror and mirror images in literature in general. It will moreover pithily put on display the exploit of looking glasses and reflections in children’s books for younger addressees. It will then tackle two main subject areas: the mirror as object in relation to material culture and the impact of its function, reflection, in terms of psychoanalytic criticism. The debate will attend to topics of home, belonging, production processes, the uncanny, physical appearance and Other while always referring to a common undercurrent of character development and identity quest fostered by the looking glass and that which it shows, or not, to the looking.
