  • From the Editors
    • Abstract: Fairy tales are wonder tales, but not all tales of wonder are fairy tales. In colonial contexts, all too commonly, the label of fairy tale has been imposed on the wondrous stories—histories, belief narratives, and fictions—of colonized peoples with damaging and lasting results. For instance, referring to Hawaiian mo‘olelo (story, legend, tradition, or history) as fairy tale overlooks the intimate relationship that mo‘olelo weave, linking humans to specific places, natural phenomena, and events; disconnects the stories from their native generic identification; and mistakes their ways of knowing for signs of primitivism and ignorance. With guest editors Bryan Kamaoli Kuwada and Aiko Yamashiro, we are pleased ... Read More

  • Rooted in Wonder: Tales of Indigenous Activism and Community Organizing
    • Abstract: On August 9, 2015, 10,000 people marched in Waikīkī. They were a sea of red—the color of our ali‘i, our chiefs, the color of ‘āweoweo swimming in schools, the color of our blood that has nourished this land for generations. Some marched to speak out against land abuse related to pesticide use and GMO (genetically modified organism) testing; others marched to stop the urbanization of agricultural land. But the vast majority of the people marching, the indigenous Kānaka Maoli and their allies, all of us who call this place home, were marching in support of the sacred mountain, Mauna Kea, to prevent its further desecration. Throughout the march—and this whole struggle, in fact—we have heard the ... Read More

  • Sók Neyni’įn
    • Abstract: I recently spent the weekend at Little Salmon Lake in south-central Yukon Territory, which is in northern Canada. It was my first visit to the place that created and sustained my paternal grandmother’s lineage. As Tagé Cho Hudän (Big River People), we are made of the lands and waterways in and around Little Salmon Lake. Because of history, circumstance, choice, chance, and force, I grew up far away from Little Salmon. As a result, my relationship with our homelands is quite different from that of my ancestors. There are a lot of things I cannot do that my ancestors did all the time: make and set net, gut and smoke fish, build a cache to store food, kill and skin a moose, tan hide, make clothes ...

  • Wondering and Laughing with Our Ancestors: Mana Wahine and the Mo‘olelo
           of Hi‘iakaikapoliopele
    • Abstract: First completely recorded in the written word by M. J. Kapihenui in the Hawaiian newspaper Ka Hoku o ka Pakipika in 1861, “He Moolelo o Hiiakaikapoliopele” is an epic of mana wahine, or sacred feminine power or inherent authority. As indicated in the title, the epic relates the mo‘olelo, or (hi)story,1 of how the youngest of the goddess Pele’s sisters, Hi‘iakaikapoliopele, came of age as a goddess in her own right, how she came to fight and become a goddess alongside her older sister. Although considered a sacred text, the mo‘olelo has a strong element of humor, featuring several accounts of Hi‘iakaikapoliopele (also commonly referred to as Hi‘iaka) outsmarting, overpowering, slaying, humiliating, mocking ...

  • Mapping Wonder in the Māui Mo‘olelo on the Mo‘o‘āina: Growing
           Aloha ‘Āina Through Indigenous and Settler Affinity Activism
    • Abstract: Lualualei is the birth center of Oahu, hence the female, Hina’s womb or cave. . . . In bitter irony we now sing, describe in dance, in the most beautiful poetic expressions, of wahipana [celebrated places] that no longer exist, that have been totally destroyed by modern man. In another irony Tutu Pele who “destroys” or eats the land, leaves in her wake cultural kipuka, little pockets of old growth forest, untouched by fire, that become the seed bank to re-vegetate the barren lava fields which over time re-new as rich cultural habitats. Is this a lesson for us today? Are we able to leave behind us a place able to re-new itself in a healing environment? At the Pu‘u Heleakalā Head Start Preschool in ... Read More

           Community, and Leadership in “The Legend of Gadao” and “The Women
           Who Saved Guåhan from a Giant Fish”
    • Abstract: In 1671 the Chamorro maga’låhi (male leader) Hurao of Hagåtña on the western Pacific isle of Guåhan (Americanized to “Guam”) delivered a speech to several hundred warriors, rallying them to defend their homeland against Spanish colonizers. Hurao was the first Chamorro to formally organize resistance to their colonizers. Part of his ire stemmed from the claim that “ma na’huyong kumu kado’kado’ yan dinagi i fina’pos-ta,” or “They treat our history as fable and fiction” (Chamoru Language Commission). The derogatory terms kado’kado’ and dinagi would have been used by the Spanish to suggest falsely that the Chamorro tales of marvels and wonders were empty of meaning, societal delusions, lies stripped of wonder and ...

  • A Legendary Story of Ko‘olau, As Serialized in the Newspaper Ka Leo o ka
           Lahui, July 11–20, 1893
    • Abstract: In 1893 a cabal of businessmen backed by the U.S. military overthrew the lawful Hawaiian government, deposing the queen, Lili‘uokalani.1 Less than six months later, Hawaiians were still reeling from the illegal overthrow, and Hawaiian-language newspapers were still running headlines such as “He Kupaa Mau ka Lahui” (The Nation Shall Be Ever Steadfast) and “He Oia Mau ke Kulana o ka Moiwahine Liliuokalani” (The Position of Queen Liliuokalani Continues On). But then new headlines began to grab the attention of the people: “Ki Pu ma Kalalau” (Shooting at Kalalau) and “Ka Make ana o Lui i ka Poe Ma‘i Lepera ma Kalalau” (Lui Killed by the Lepers in Kalalau). A sense of wonder seized the nation’s imagination when these ... Read More

  • Contes: Charles Perrault ed. by Tony Gheeraert (review)
    • Abstract: This new French edition of Perrault’s fairy tales has the immense merit of being a comprehensive collection of Perrault’s writings in the genre, including his versified tales, prose tales (found in the 1695 manuscript, the Mercure galant, and the 1697 edition), and prefaces, dedications, contemporary letters, and contemporary articles on the subject. The book is divided into four main parts, followed by outlines and notices of each tale, a bibliography, an index of the main mentioned names, and a table of illustrations. The first section is a long introduction. Next is Perrault’s versified tales and their prefaces. They are followed by the published tales of the 1697 Histoires ou contes du temps passé ... Read More

  • The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew
           Lang ed. by Jack Zipes (review)
    • Abstract: It is somewhat surprising that a collection of fairy tales with the scope of The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang has not appeared until now. The nineteenth century was truly the “golden age,” as Jack Zipes dubs it (xvii), of the fairy tale. The form was at its peak of popularity and interest and, spurred on by the somewhat erroneous idea that such tales were quickly disappearing from contemporary life, collection was at an all-time high. Although anthologies of Victorian reworkings of fairy tales exist—see, for example, Michael Patrick Hearn’s Victorian Fairy Tale Book (1988), Zipes’s own Victorian Fairy Tales: The Revolt of the Fairies and Elves (1989), and the ...

  • Long, Long Tales from the Russian North ed. by Jack V. Haney (review)
    • Abstract: Fans of Russian fairy tales will want to add Long, Long Tales from the Russian North to their shelves, as it contains material that has been translated into English for the first time. It is light on critical content but hefty on tale material, with the shortest of the seventeen tales extending eleven pages. Although the collection is undoubtedly complete in the sense that it contains enough tales to satisfy the hungriest narrative scholar, it felt unbalanced in a handful of other ways that I noticed. The introduction contains useful material, such as notes on cultural context (the tales being collected in Russian Karelia), biographical information on the narrators (all men), and distinctions ...

  • Channeling Wonder: Fairy Tales on Television ed. by Pauline Greenhill,
           Jill Terry Rudy (review)
    • Abstract: As a communication scholar who sometimes dabbles in fairy tales, I was thrilled with the opportunity to review Channeling Wonder. The introduction notes that this book is the first critical collection that specifically examines “how television channels the wonder of fairy tales” and the “increasing role of other mediated forms such as websites in the distribution, textualization, performance, and reception of traditional and literary tales on TV” (5). These essays provide international (though largely Western) perspectives of stories that are highly familiar and ask readers to look beyond the pleasure found in watching the boob tube toward a more nuanced and critical understanding of the functionality of ...

  • The Disney Middle Ages: A Fairy-Tale and Fantasy Past ed. by Tison Pugh,
           Susan Aronstein (review)
    • Abstract: The Disney Middle Ages: A Fairy-Tale and Fantasy Past, a volume in the New Middle Ages series of criticism, is an uneven but overall thought-provoking collection of essays that examines the conjunction between Disney and medievalism from several angles. One major strength of the collection is that it does not concentrate wholly on the most expected angle, the Disney princess phenomenon. However, this strength is simultaneously a weakness, because the most problematic chapters here seem to be trying too hard to discuss anything but princesses, in the process shoehorning Disney’s properties into “medieval” topics that do not entirely fit them. The book is divided into three theme-based sections. The ... Read More

  • Entranced by Story: Brain, Tale, and Teller from Infancy to Old Age by
           Hugh Crago (review)
    • Abstract: Entranced by Story is a fascinating account of the evolution of the storytelling brain in its seven developmental stages: early childhood, preschool childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, maturity, and old age. Because most chapters concern stories we tell or read between childhood and young adolescence, it would seem that Hugh Crago’s argument is of particular relevance to students of children’s literature. The overall focus, however, makes this book eye-opening to anyone interested in how stories engage real readers. Crago’s premise is that the structure of the human brain explains surprisingly many aspects of the literary experience. The key lies in grasping the interaction ... Read More

  • Fairy Tales with a Black Consciousness: Essays on Adaptations of Familiar
           Stories ed. by Vivian Yenika-Agbaw, Ruth McKoy Lowery, Laretta Henderson
           (review)
    • Abstract: The study of folklore has always been both local and global, intensely focused on a single culture yet also deeply engaged with what goes on in the world at large. In many ways, anthropologists modeled how to access the local, traveling to remote regions, learning languages, and setting up camp in the cultures they study. And, like Claude Lévi-Strauss, they also put the local in conversation with the global as a way of understanding the culturally specific. But there is also something to be said for scholars who labor in libraries and archives, digging into narratives and excavating information from them. After all, Freud wrote one of the great landmarks of anthropological research, Totem and Taboo (1913) ... Read More

  • Film and Fairy Tales: The Birth of Modern Fantasy by Kristian Moen
           (review)
    • Abstract: Kristian Moen’s fascinating book provides a worthy addition to the growing number of publications investigating the convergence of fairy tales and cinema. As a film historian interested in the relationship between early cinema and modernity, Moen draws his fairy-tale framework from Jack Zipes and Marina Warner and infuses it with theory from film scholars such as Miriam Hansen and Vachel Lindsay. A refreshing archival contribution to fairy-tale studies, the book is tightly knit, innovative, and well researched and provides a historical context for thinking about a wide expanse of fairy-tale films. Moen focuses on the earliest years of cinematic production, 1900 through 1940, to draw conclusions ... Read More

  • Grimm Legacies: The Magic Spell of the Grimms’ Folk and Fairy Tales
           by Jack Zipes (review)
    • Abstract: Grimm Legacies is a must read for anyone with a sincere interest in the lives of the Brothers Grimm and fairy-tale scholarship. Internationally renowned expert and esteemed fairy-tale guru Jack Zipes explores seminal questions in his erudite work, such as “What is legacy, and what was the corpus of folk and fairy tales that the Brothers Grimm passed on to the German people? Why have the Grimms’ so-called German tales spread throughout the world and become so universally international?” (2–3). Divided into an insightful introduction, six comprehensive chapters, and a concise epilogue, Grimm Legacies provides a formidable overview of the origins, evolution, reception, and impact of the Grimms’ world-famous ...

  • Here Be Dragons: Exploring Fantasy Maps and Settings by Stefan Ekman
           (review)
    • Abstract: Here Be Dragons is an exceptional study of fantasy literature that pays critical attention to fantasy landscapes and argues that setting-based readings, which Stefan Ekman terms topofocal readings, offer a rich, unexplored area of critical investigation. Ekman’s study is well grounded in fantasy scholarship, and he demonstrates that although setting has been the focus of several studies, it is still an understudied area that typically emphasizes the connections of setting to character and plot rather than focusing on setting as the primary point of interest. Ekman argues that settings deserve equal critical attention and that fantasy settings in particular are important because of “fantasy’s characteristic ... Read More

  • Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection, Volume 1 ed. by Hope Nicholson
           (review)
    • Abstract: Buffy Sainte-Marie’s iconic 1970s song “Moonshot” frames the same vision that inspires Hope Nicholson’s edited anthology, Moonshot: The Indigenous Comics Collection. The mixture of science fiction imagery and ecology, of earthbound futures and space-bound history, permeate this sublime collection of folktales. The story behind the song is that Sainte-Marie wrote it after “a conversation with Christian scholars who didn’t realize that indigenous people had already been in contact with the Creator before Europeans conquered them” (buffysainte-marie.com). From the foreword, Nicholson writes that she chose the title because the song “details the concepts of extraterrestrial and religious contact present in . . . ... Read More

  • The Dead Lands dir. by Toa Fraser (review)
    • Abstract: As a Māori I was taught that the kōrero (stories) of my tupuna (ancestors) can serve to guide my understanding of the world around me, just as the currents of te moana (the ocean) guide the ocean vessel. Even so, whereas the ocean currents assist us inconspicuously, that is, without necessarily being seen, our tupuna also guide us from a place just beyond our ability to see yet not beyond our ability to communicate. With regard to Toa Fraser’s Dead Lands, an understanding of the relationship between the past and the present in this way is vital to identifying the values of Māori culture that steer the film’s story. Set in a small village in precontact Aotearoa (New Zealand), The Dead Lands is an ... Read More

In the video game world, the technical term used for this type of expansion is downloadable content, or DLC, and traditional DLCs are essentially defined as additional content created for an already released video game, usually distributed over the Internet by the game’s official publisher (think of that new installment of your favorite adventure story that you cannot wait to read or a new episode of that TV drama you are unashamedly ...

  • Pinocchio dir. by Enzo D’Alò (review)
    • Abstract: During the whole period of its long existence, the story of Pinocchio has seduced and enchanted writers, poets, artists, photographers, actors, and filmmakers (the story was first issued in magazine installments 134 years ago, and the first installment appeared on Thursday, July 7, 1881, a holiday for Italian children). This explains why Enzo D’Alò, one of the rare high-level professionals of the European cinematographic landscape producing top-quality animated films, decided to deal with this story, which is also one of the most fertile myths of literary history. It is not the first time that D’Alò has produced a film based on children’s literature. He began his career in 1996 with the cartoon La ... Read More

  • Sinalela dir. by Dan Taulapapa McMullin (review)
    • Abstract: Sinalela, created by the Samoan visual artist, filmmaker, and poet Dan Taulapapa McMullin, is a fa‘afafine retelling of Cinderella. It won the Best Short Film award at the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival in 2002. Fa‘afafine (in the manner of a woman) is an identity defined relationally in Samoa. Comparable to the māhū of Hawai‘i, fa‘afafine are often erroneously glossed as transgender or gay. There is a long tradition of palagis writing Islanders into their stories on print, stage, and screen, a long history of palagis making spectacle of Pacific bodies, gender, and sexuality. This is especially true for Samoa, with which the name Mead has become synonymous for non-Islanders and Islanders alike. ... Read More
