Abstract

This essay examines the importance of children's play on the Southern plantation in Diddie, Dumps, and Tot and Miss Li'l' Tweetty as Louise Clarke Pyrnelle's novels reveal play's complex psychosocial significance. The children's stories, language, and imaginative play both replicate and challenge their plantation world, having the potential to upset adult value systems.
