  • From the Editors
    • Abstract: After the appearance of Channeling Wonder: Fairy Tales on Television (2014), we welcomed the opportunity to have the editors, Pauline Greenhill and Jill Terry Rudy, return for a Channeling Wonder Part II in the form of this special issue, “Transcultural and Intermedial Fairy Tales and Television.” Although not as extensive as Channeling Wonder, this special issue continues to explore issues of transcultural and intermedial production and reception of the fairy tale through the medium of television. Two essays explore the intersections of fairy tale and police proceedings through an examination of an Australian, German, and Israeli coproduction and a French 1970s television series. Other essays look at ... Read More

  • Introduction: Transcultural and Intermedial Fairy Tales and Television
    • Abstract: Tales move. Their portability has been so ubiquitous as to be occasionally imperceptible. Their motivations so apparently mundane as to be regularly overlooked. Like the tales’ protagonists, the form’s fortunes rise and fall and rise. For example, in his foreword to Pauline Greenhill and Sidney Eve Matrix’s Fairy Tale Films, Jack Zipes observes that fairy tale is not referenced in the 1996 Oxford History of World Cinema (ix). Greenhill and Matrix acknowledge that some may see the study of fairy-tale film to be associated with “diversionary kid stuff, or at worst, [the] utterly facile, predictable, disposable” (“Introduction,” 22). Yet the fall is never long or far because tales keep moving. Because people ... Read More

  • The Fairy Tale Police Department: Hybridity, the Transnational Television
           Fairy Tale, and Cultural Forms
    • Abstract: Given their global ubiquity, fairy tales would appear to be unequivocally transnational. Scholarship, however, has not always reflected this. As Jennifer Schacker notes, the “roots of folklore study have generally been traced to the quest for national identity and cultural purity” (2). Meanwhile, Donald Haase observes a converse tendency, “still embedded in the contemporary practice of folktale scholarship, [to] promote the universalizing and leveling of texts across cultures,” which denies the significance of nation altogether (“Decolonizing,” 27). These are not so much ways of thinking about storytelling as transnational as they are modes of cultural heterogenization and homogenization. Lying between these ... Read More

  • Monstrous Modernity on French Television: La brigade des maléfices
    • Abstract: La brigade des maléfices, which could be translated as “The Hex Brigade,” is a French supernatural television series consisting of six episodes, broadcast in 1971 on ORTF (Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision Française). The brigade in question consists of Inspector Paumier, played by Léo Campion, and Paumier’s sidekick, Albert, played by Marc Lamole. In the opening sequence of each episode, Paumier is described as the “Sherlock Holmes of things fairy, the Maigret1 of modern witchcraft, expert in occult sciences.” In some respects, the series conforms to the model of the American monster-hunter series, in which usually two men, working like detectives, pursue a supernatural monster that is sowing disorder in ...

  • Identifying Impressions of Baba Yaga: Navigating the Uses of Attachment
           and Wonder on Soviet and American Television
    • Abstract: Baba Yaga. Her name conjures up images of dark forests, glowing skulls, grotesque bodily features, cannibalism, and her iconic flying mortar-and-pestle and chicken-legged hut. Many of these images were introduced to Western audiences through the exquisite artwork of fin de siècle Russian artist Ivan Bilibin, and her stories reached Western audiences through translations of Aleksandr Afanasyev’s Narodnye russkie skazki (Forrester, xiii). Baba Yaga is the most “popular and complex figure in Russian tales,” a “truly national” Russian, and “virtually all Russians are familiar with her through books and animated films” (Balina et al. 13). Her story has been passed down through generations, wars, and revolutions. ... Read More

  • The Legacy of DEFA’s Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella in Post-Wall
           Germany: Tracing the Popularity of a Binational Fairy-Tale Film on
           Television
    • Abstract: In recent years fairy-tale and film scholars, including Jack Zipes, Qinna Shen, and Sebastian Heiduschke, have written about the worldwide popularity of Václav Vorlíček’s film Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel1 (Three Hazelnuts for Cinderella, 1973), recognizing its status as a European cult classic and acknowledging its devoted fan base.2 Despite the work done thus far on this specific DEFA (Deutsche Film-Aktiengesellschaft) adaptation of a Czech version of “Cinderella,” the film’s legacy in post-Wall Germany merits further scholarly attention because of its enduring popularity in German and, more generally, eastern and northern European culture.3 In discussing the legacy of Three Hazelnuts for ...

           Brand from 1963 to 2014
    • Abstract: Once upon a time in 1963 postwar Italy, a small black chick wearing half of his eggshell on his head and with a persecution complex twice his size stumbled across silver screens for the first time. His name was Calimero, and ever since he has been lamenting the injustices of the whole world, with new television series dedicated to him in 1972 and 1992 in Japan and in 2014 in France, which were translated and transmitted back to Italy, Europe, and the rest of the planet. Through television, Calimero has surpassed his humble origins to become a fixture in transnational memory, like Cinderella and the Ugly Duckling before him, from which his story takes its cues. I outline here the history of ... Read More

  • “I Am Not a Fairy Tale”: Indigenous Storytelling on Canadian
           Television
    • Abstract: When Indigenous traditional stories are adapted for mainstream media platforms, they enter into a complex media space already saturated with story genres, from fairy tales to sitcoms. They also circulate into a regulatory environment specific to national mediascapes. What happens to Indigenous stories in this context, and how are Indigenous concerns visible even as the stories travel into new circumstances' Recognizing the influential dynamics of European story systems and the demands and limitations of media production and transmission, I explore Indigenous agency in story adaptations at the point of syncretism with settler genres and platforms in Canadian broadcasting of First Nations stories for youth ...

  • Feathers, Paws, Fins, and Claws: Fairy-Tale Beasts ed. by Jennifer
           Schacker, Christine A. Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Fairy-tale beasts, from early tales such as those by the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault to postmodern fairy tales by such authors as Angela Carter and Kelly Link, continue to fascinate readers because, among other reasons, they are always surprising. A bear is never just a bear, nor is a cat simply a cat. These beasts seem at once to both revel in their animal form and to cast it off in favor of more human attributes. It is this sense of ambiguity, this elusiveness between what it is to be human and what it is to be animal, that weaves its way through Feathers, Paws, Fins, and Claws: Fairy-Tale Beasts. Editors Jennifer Schacker and Christine A. Jones have compiled a collection of ten fairy ... Read More

  • The Cambridge Companion to Fairy Tales ed. by Maria Tatar (review)
    • Abstract: Maria Tatar’s collection of essays by leading fairy-tale scholars serves as a quick and thorough way to become reacquainted with what others are doing in the fairy-tale studies field. Conversely, if someone is new to fairy-tale studies, this book contains cutting-edge research that can serve as a fine introduction. The book begins with a brief biography of the twelve contributors. This section is followed by a timeline of significant dates in fairy-tale history, starting with the publication of Giovanni Francesco Straparola’s The Pleasant Nights in 1550–1553 and ending with 2004’s release of Hans-Jörg Uther’s The Types of International Folk Tales: A Classification and a Bibliography.

  • Fairy-Tale Films Beyond Disney: International Perspectives ed. by Jack
           Zipes, Pauline Greenhill, Kendra Magnus-Johnston (review)
    • Abstract: In Fairy-Tale Films Beyond Disney: International Perspectives, Jack Zipes joins with scholars Pauline Greenhill and Kendra Magnus-Johnston to create a comprehensive look at fairy-tale film. They do so by gathering a multitude of transnational fairy-tale film experts to contribute entries representing seventeen different countries. Beyond focusing on fairy-tale films, the editors allowed their contributors freedom as to what methodologies and theories were to be used. In doing so, the collection is reflective of the diversity that such a global study requires; this eclectic approach naturally results in some contributors focusing more on film theory, and others on politics, gender, folk culture, and so on. ...

  • The Gothic Fairy Tale in Young Adult Literature: Essays on Stories from
           Grimm to Gaiman ed. by Joseph Abbruscato, Tanya Jones (review)
    • Abstract: The Gothic Fairy Tale in Young Adult Literature is a collection of essays that explores the intersections of fairy-tale themes and gothic motifs in recent literature for young audiences that uses fairy-tale elements or reworks specific fairy tales. The essays cover novels from middle-grade children’s literature to young adult fiction, including the works of Orson Scott Card, Robin McKinley, John Connolly, Terri Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, and many others. There are some standout contributions in this collection. However, the introduction sets up a framework that is inconsistent with the essays themselves. In the Introduction Joseph Abbruscato states that the editors want to contribute to the ... Read More

  • Scheherazade’s Children: Global Encounters with the Arabian Nights ed.
           by Philip F. Kennedy, Marina Warner (review)
    • Abstract: Philip F. Kennedy and Marina Warner open their collection, Scheherazade’s Children, with an image of a staircase in a 2009 exhibition that symbolized the year 1453. Linking Roman and Byzantine artifacts on one floor to the Islamic artifacts on the next, this linear separation helped to tell the historiographic and militaristic story most often told. But cultural products tell “an alternative story: glass, mirrors, velvet, brocade . . . reveal a process of reverse colonization” (2). Literature speaks more readily than glass and brocade, and Alf layla wa-layla, commonly known in English as the Arabian Nights, jumped borders and indelibly sparked imaginations for centuries. Guided by Said’s Orientalism (1978) ... Read More

  • Children into Swans: Fairy Tales and the Pagan Imagination by Jan
           Beveridge (review)
    • Abstract: Fairy tales are some of the first stories we are exposed to as children. From our parents’ lips to picture books to Disney films, we are constantly bombarded with stories of princes and princesses and fairies, both benevolent and malevolent. But where did these fairy tales come from' Are there any common threads between the fairy tales of old, even if they came from completely different countries' In her book, Children into Swans: Fairy Tales and the Pagan Imagination, Jan Beveridge attempts to take these questions and turn them into answers. Beveridge is coming so late to the folklore party, however, that it is impressive that she believes she can take these age-old questions and bring anything new to the ... Read More

  • Erotic Infidelities: Love and Enchantment in Angela Carter’s The Bloody
           Chamber by Kimberly J. Lau (review)
    • Abstract: The subtitle of Kimberly Lau’s Erotic Infidelities, “Love and Enchantment in Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber,” is somewhat misleading insofar as the mostly positive connotations of “love” and “enchantment” are challenged, dismantled, and recast in her interrogation of Carter’s tour de force of fairy-tale retellings. Successively taking on each of the tales in The Bloody Chamber (1979), Lau examines Carter’s underlying critical project by revealing her sustained thematic grappling with “the near impossibility of heterosexual love and desire under patriarchy” (8). Lau demonstrates Carter’s endeavor to break out of the phallocentric mold in which traditional fairy tales are lodged and establish a potential ... Read More

  • Fairy Tales, Myth, and Psychoanalytic Theory: Feminism and Retelling the

    • Abstract: In Fairy Tales, Myth, and Psychoanalytic Theory Veronica Schanoes uses her experience with fairy tales and feminist psychoanalytic theory to “draw out and analyz[e] the connections between the two genres” (3). Schanoes explains the need for a fresh psychoanalytic examination of fairy tales because the 1970s and 1990s “were a time in which both artists and psychoanalytic theorists were concerned with issues of how a woman’s sense of self is constructed and how it develops; only by examining these texts in light of one another can we fully understand the answers they arrived at” (5). In her examination, Schanoes demonstrates what can be learned by applying feminist psychoanalytic theory to fairy tales and ... Read More

  • Fairy Tales Transformed' Twenty-First-Century Adaptations and the
           Politics of Wonder by Cristina Bacchilega (review)
    • Abstract: Cristina Bacchilega’s Fairy Tales Transformed' Twenty-First-Century Adaptations and the Politics of Wonder is a theoretically sophisticated analysis of contemporary cultural and artistic uses of fairy tales. It emphasizes local epistemologies as key to reinvigorating the “poetics and politics of wonder,” a phrase Bacchilega uses to refer to the power dynamics at stake in the telling, reading, and watching of fairy tales (ix). The purpose of this project, Bacchilega writes, is to “direct our attention to the significance of orality and located epistemologies in multimedia fairy-tale traditions and to the relationship of folk and fairy tales with other cultures’ wonder genres” (196). In doing so, she directs ... Read More

  • From Fairy Tale to Screenplay: Working with Plot Genotypes by Terrance
           Patrick Murphy (review)
    • Abstract: In 1928 Vladimir Propp published his work on the functional analysis of Russian folktales titled Morphology of the Folktale, in which he asserted that regardless of fluidity in characters, setting, and so on, the thirty-one functions (or actions) performed within the plot of a tale are the same, resulting in “an amazing uniformity” in the structure of folktales. Although Terrance Patrick Murphy believes (as many scholars now do) that the reach of Propp’s theory is overstated, he builds on previous work (2008) to support his claim that it is “possible to reconcile the work of Syd Field [a late-twentieth-century screenplay analyst] with that of Vladimir Propp in order to create a better method of analyzing a ...

  • Magic Tales and Fairy Tale Magic from Ancient Egypt to the Italian
           Renaissance by Ruth B. Bottigheimer (review)
    • Abstract: Magic Tales and Fairy Tale Magic takes the reader on a journey of the evolution of magic in magic tales and fairy tales beginning in ancient Egypt and ending in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italy. Bottigheimer analyzes “the shifting balance between magic’s maleficent and beneficent effects on mortals in the tales, the physical composition of magic, the earthly or other-worldly locus of supernaturals, and the allocations of agency among supernaturals and human beings” (2). This is done by analyzing magic in each of the tales by taking into account the social and historical context as well as the actual events in the tales themselves. Bottigheimer connects magic tales to fairy tales by ... Read More

  • The Rebirth of Rapunzel: A Mythic Biography of the Maiden in the Tower by
           Kate Forsyth (review)
    • Abstract: From the outset, Kate Forsyth clearly states the primary goal of her “mythic biography,” and that is, quite simply, to “interrogate the many different retellings of the ‘Maiden in the Tower’” in an exegesis that seeks to explain why “this tale-type has continued to be told and re-told over so many centuries” (4). Forsyth initially gathered much of the research presented here for her novel Bitter Greens (2012); in that work she explores the nature and power of storytelling as she constructs an adaptation of the “Rapunzel” narrative that is rich in historical detail and fictional speculation. In The Rebirth of Rapunzel Forsyth frames her scholarly inquiry within a process narrative that explores her deeply ... Read More

  • Spellbound: The Fairy Tale and the Victorians by Molly Clark Hillard
           (review)
    • Abstract: In Spellbound: The Fairy Tale and the Victorians Molly Clark Hillard counters the common perception that fairy tales are and were for children, focusing on their pervasive occurrence in Victorian literature aimed at an adult audience. She argues that fairy tales, despite the Victorian (and current) tendency to dismiss them as childish or quaint, had a significant influence on Victorian literary genres. Rather than offering a wistful, romantic retreat from modern industrial England, as is commonly theorized, fairy tales were a means by which societal changes and trends were discussed. The popularity of fairy tales in Victorian England occurred at a time when the formation of the novel and new movements in ... Read More

  • Trolls: An Unnatural History by John Lindow (review)
    • Abstract: Trolls, those ugly trouble-making creatures, have inhabited the human imagination for a thousand years. They live in literature and in folktales, but they refuse to be confined to stories—people have had actual encounters with trolls for centuries. In Trolls: An Unnatural History, John Lindow traces a history of troll narratives from the earliest accounts from the Viking Age to their recent presence on Twitter. The trolls we discover in Lindow’s history will not be unfamiliar to a reader of J. R. R. Tolkien or even J. K. Rowling; in general, trolls are and always have been antisocial, ugly, and stupid. It becomes clear after reading the earliest narratives, however, that trolls have only recently become ... Read More

  • Wonderlands: The Last Romances of William Morris by Phillippa Bennett
           (review)
    • Abstract: Phillippa Bennett’s study of William Morris’s late romances argues for their significance in Morris’s larger social project. As she observes, nineteenth-century scholars have frequently dismissed the value of the romances, seeing them as dreamy, reactionary, and unacceptably archaic in style. Bennett, however, locates Morris’s romances firmly within his wider social and artistic project. Her study draws extensively not only on Morris’s own essays and lectures but also on the ideas and debates of the period, producing a rich account of Morris’s social theory and its location in his time. In chapters addressing the embodiment, topography, architecture, and politics of wonder, Bennett draws clear connections ... Read More
