  • Mother Goose: A Scholarly Exploration
    Organization: School of Communication, Information and Library Studies, Rutgers University

    “Mother Goose is a staple of American childhood. The verses attributed to this mythical matriarch represent the sheer joy of young children playing with sound, language, rhythm and rhyme. They also introduce young listeners to the characters, simple plots and literary conventions that are entrees into more complex stories and poetry…

    Although Mother Goose is most commonly associated with the nursery, her power extends beyond babies and toddlers to many aspects of adult life. Scholars study the literary history of Mother Goose as well as social and historical referents in these nursery rhymes. The instantaneous recognition of characters and events leads to allusions in other literary works, in popular culture, and in advertising. Thus, this website builds on the familiarity, the popularity and the potential of multiple levels of learning inherent in Mother Goose.” (RUTGERS UNIVERSITY)
