Sumario:Trash, a novel by Andy Mulligan, was banned from the Blue Peter Book Awards in 2010 given that its organizers determined some of its content was violent and inappropriate for the younger readers. The decision poses a constant issue: ¿is there an evil literature that conveys violence into its readers? Banning the novel entails and merges two tendencies (or gestures) in one: protecting childhood by preventing it from exposure to the dark zones of human society: protection by cancelation of reality. The dynamics of these awards let us see that infancy may be subject of consumption before subject of knowledge.
