Description

Fairy Tales is an introduction to the folk tales collected by and since the Brothers Grimm. We will discuss the tales, their modern adaptations in both literature and film, and learn about the scholarly perspectives that help us understand them (e.g. psychoanalysis, structural anthropology, sociohistorical or Marxist critique, feminism, and environmental criticism). We will study the Grimms’ cultural and intellectual context around 1800, which involves higher political stakes for the collection of folklore than one might imagine. We will also take up the full range of tales in their collection project, reading in addition to the stories familiar to North Americans many lesser-known, but highly revealing tales. Along with our own close readings, we will explore the approaches that scholars, artists, and writers have taken in interpreting and remaking the tales to consider the ways these stories and storytelling matter in today’s world.

Class Format:

Taught in English.
