Ranju P, Dr. M. Selvam
New Literacy Studies, literacy practices, Matilda, Roald Dahl, positive adult role models, childhood development, transformative impact of literature, emotional intelligence, interpersonal skills.
This research delves into the intricate world of literacy practices using Roald Dahl's "Matilda" as a lens, transcending conventional notions of reading and writing. Employing textual scrutiny and the New Literacy Studies framework, it investigates Matilda's interaction with literacy, emphasizing her utilization of reading for pleasure, escapism, and empowerment. Matilda's narrative highlights the pivotal role of supportive adult figures, notably Miss Honey, in nurturing a passion for reading amid familial adversities. Moreover, Dahl's narrative challenges societal conventions, advocating for early cultivation of a reading habit and opposing forces that stifle curiosity. Matilda's journey serves as a poignant reminder of literature's profound impact on fostering empathy and comprehension, underscoring its role in shaping children's emotional intelligence and social adeptness.
