    Zipes addreses the idea that the myth is higher literature than the fairy tale, and provides an insightful discussion into the process of patriarchal revision that the fairy tale has been subjected to Case in point he tracks the Grimm Brothers recording and revising original Hessian fairy tales, and then tracks how Disney revised the Grimm version Comparing the original tale with the one most well known today, we see that the older tales are much wilder, violent, and ultimately, feature much autonomous and independent heroines Zipes does a pretty brilliant job.

    A good critical analysis of the socio political origins of Fairy Tales and their current attempts at mythologizing Western Patriarchal ideals.

    I enjoyed my time with this short collection of essays on fairy tales and myths as penned by Jack Zipes Some were interesting than others, especially the Beauty and the Beast one, and the Rumplestiltskin one I recommend this to anyone and everyone interested in fairy tales and what they may say about society and ourselves.


  4. says:

    The first three to four essays in this book are quite good The last few are so so If you have read other work by Zipes, you can skip the chapter about Disney, for you have heard it before.However, the book is worth reading simply for its discussion about Beauty and the Beast as well as the Rumpstilskien Zipes does a wonderful and conniving job of tying the Grimms version of the tale the advent of industrialization.

    this set of 6 rather independent essays on fairy tales both classic and contemporary uses marxist and feminist critique to illuminate the social and historical meaning and use of fairy tale It make a good counter to Bettlelheim s Freudian angle in The uses of Enchantment.


  6. says:

    Zipes gets a bit redundant after a whilethis is basically of the same quasi Marxist, typo ridden fairy tale analysis


  7. says:

    If you like fairy tales this is a good read I enjoyed the approach the author takes comparing fairy tales with myth Worth space on the shelf if you study fairy tales.
