 Children's Literature
A quick definition is "literature written for African children by African authors either in the vernacular or in a foreign language" (Meniru 1992:43).
Those who regard oral and written literature as having equal values might argue that this was achieved because the African child despite being introduced to western literature was at the same time still listening to stories and proverbs at home.

Writing a literature review clearly both assists students to gain mastery of their field and demonstrates that they have mastered an important research skill.
Writing literature reviews has not only been a long-standing tradition in research and scholarship, it continues to be a vehicle through which credibility is established.
Literature reviews are required when writing grant applications, research reports and journal articles, as well as being sought after by journals for publication in their own right.

 Efthimis N. Efthimiadis: "The growth of the OPAC literature" Abstract   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
In the few years of their existence the body of literature created cannot be regarded as insignificant.
The analysis of the 1970-1985 OPAC literature shows that it could be a very good example of logistic growth.
The literature had an initial growth rate of b =.556 (or 74.4% per year), with a corresponding doubling time of 1.25 years, which was probably due to the prolific CLR study.

 Literature Review
When the MBTI types for these same students were compared with their grades, Js had higher grades than Ps; however, Js who were also introverted and intuitive had the highest grades (Myers & McCaulley, 1985).
For instance, a type table of counselors would be unusual if it did not indicate a strong NF preference (McCaulley, 1985).
The literature reviewed above suggests that students who have high IQs or who have high scores on aptitude measures or who have been identified as gifted are heavily represented among the MBTI types that include N and NP.

 AllRefer.com - Margaret Drabble (English Literature, 20th Century To The Present, Biography) - Encyclopedia
Drabble's realistic vision of an England split between traditional values and contemporary desires is apparent in such works as The Millstone (1965), The Waterfall (1969), and The Middle Ground (1980), and in her critical studies on Wordsworth (1966) and Arnold Bennett (1974).
Increasingly Drabble's focus has moved from society as a whole to the fate of women, as in The Radiant Way (1987), its sequel, A Natural Curiosity (1989), The Gates of Ivory (1991), The Peppered Moth (2001), whose central character is based on her mother, and The Seven Sisters (2002).
She also edited the Oxford Companion to English Literature (1985).
