The portrayal of childhood within literature comes in many forms. In his autobiographical novel, ‘Journey Through a Small Planet’, Anglo-Jewish author Emanuel Litvinoff (1979) recalls his childhood in what he refers to as a ‘Jewish ghetto’; an area of the East End of London. Litvinoff (1979) recounts his upbringing in the impoverished tenements of Whitechapel with his Mother and a seemingly never-ending number of siblings. The novel reveals how the central character, ‘Manny’, shows contempt towards fathers and, in particular, towards his own father, of whom he has never met. Despite living in relative squalor and being the constant target for school bullies, as well as teachers, Litvinoff (1979) retells his childhood as being a time of wonder and excitement, rather than of misery and depression.
