Listen to part of a lecture in a children’s literature class.

请听儿童文学课上的部分内容。
Today we’ll start looking at the most important children’s book authors of the twentieth century.

And I’d like to start with an author illustrator whom some of you probably grew up reading: Dr. Seuss.
我想从一位插画作家开始,你们中一些人可能是看着他的书长大的,他就是Seuss博士。
His actual name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, Geisel’s work was hugely popular among beginning readers and their parents,

but it wasn’t always considered literature or subjected to serious academic inquiry until relatively recently.
但是它并不总是被当做文学作品或者受到认真的学术研究,直到最近才有所改观。
In fact, not only weren’t his books considered literature, but they weren’t always considered good school books.
事实上他写的书不仅不被认为是文学作品,还不被认为是好的教材。
In the late 1950s and even through the 60s, US teachers resisted Seuss’s books

because they perceived them as having a comic book style...fun, maybe, but not...not appropriate for the classroom.

None of Geisel’s books individually won him a Pulitzer Prize. And he didn’t receive any top children’s literary awards either.
没有任何一本Geisel的书令他获得过普利策奖,他也没赢得过任何顶尖的儿童文学奖项。
Although the Pulitzer Prize Committee did give him a citation in 1984 for his...uh...
虽然普利策组委会1984年对他进行过褒奖,说他......
special contribution over nearly half a century to the education and enjoyment of America’s children and their parents.

But again, that wasn’t until 1984.
但是这也是直到1984年才出现的。
