  • From the Editors
    • Abstract: In this issue several contributors focus on the relation of folktales and fairy tales to memory, gender, and identity. Moving from folktales that empower Palestinians in their recreation of “memory sites” to a reading of Shahrazād that problematizes the common view of her as a figure of female empowerment, this 2017 issue of our journal ponders the question of how tales are repurposed to legitimate as well as question cultural, gender, and national identities and norms. We learn that in the nineteenth century The Arabian Nights was redeployed to legitimate an emerging American ethos and that “Cinderella” and other classical tales have been retooled to validate the culture of Chinese immigrants in New York ...

  • Peasantry in Palestinian Folktales: Sites of Memory, Homeland, and
           Collectivity
    • Abstract: Originating from a pre-Nakba or pre-1948 context, the Palestinian folktale collection Speak, Bird, Speak Again (1989) and its correspondent Arabic collection Qul Ya Tayer (2001) are sourced from the rural environment and villages. The tales in these two collections describe a harmonious and agricultural pre-1948 setting, revealing the dynamics of Palestinian society and taking a closer look at people and their neighborly interactions in rural villages. In fact, the level of interaction between individuals transcends family boundaries, integrating the individual into wider relationships with his or her community, environment, and religion. The interaction between the state of peasantry and Palestinian ... Read More

  • Women and Slaves: Gender Politics in the Arabian Nights
    • Abstract: Female sexuality and its place in the patriarchal order is a central theme of the Arabian Nights. Questions of the nature, limits, and potential dangers of female sexual desire drive the narrative of the frame tale and many stories in the collection. The frame tale is set in motion by a transgression of patriarchal authority (a sultan’s wife’s liaison with a black slave), which only gains in intensity and scope as events unfold. Soon, women’s loyalty (and by implication the ability of men to control their bodies) is called into question. Shahrazād has to defend her fellow women against Shahrayār’s rage by answering the charge of female infidelity, which arises as a natural consequence of the opening ... Read More

  • American Aladdins and Sinbads: A Critical Bibliographic Examination of the
           Arabian Nights for Antebellum Nationhood
    • Abstract: Nothing more need be said of the best tales of the Arabian Nights, in which number we include all of the former translations, except that we regard them as we believe they are viewed by everyone. We consider them as powerful delineations of national character, seen through a veil of delicately wrought fiction. A survey of scholarship on the Western reception of A Thousand and One Nights, also called the Arabian Nights, suggests that the story collection’s presence in Europe, particularly in France and England, has often been highlighted, to the neglect of its publication and circulation in the United States. Also, whereas much has been written about American literary Orientalism,1 the Nights has been ... Read More

  • Surgical Humanization in H. C. Andersen’s “The Little
           Mermaid”
    • Abstract: Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid” (“Den lille Havfrue”) is easily one of Denmark’s most identifiable productions.1 The iconic statue of Andersen’s mermaid that stands on Copenhagen’s waterfront is an unofficial national symbol and a major tourist attraction, and the story itself continues to be a mainstay of local and international collections of fairy tales and children’s literature. On the one hand, the tale is often remembered as a sentimental, gently tragic love story; on the other hand, it is a morally uplifting celebration of the human soul. But sentimental responses to the story often conflate these two strands, obscuring the complex relationship between them. This is a story that is as ... Read More

  • “A Different Logic”: Animals, Transformation, and Rationality in
           Angela Carter’s “The Tiger’s Bride”
    • Abstract: Helen Hopcroft Tiger Bride Oil on canvas, 2012, 121.5 × 150cm, collection of Ali Maginness Since at least the time of Aristotle, Western culture has been recognized as structured through key binaries, commonly identified as including animal and human, body and mind, nature and culture, female and male. The hierarchies involved in these dualities have often depended on an appeal to reason as defining the valued pole, with unreason, emotion, and instinct denigrated at the other pole.1 Arguably, the central organizing principle of reason—described by Val Plumwood as the “protagonist-superhero of the western psyche” (Feminism, 3)—not only sustains these binaries but is also gendered ...

  • Translating Russian Folklore into Soviet Fantasy in Arkadi and Boris

           Deathless
    • Abstract: Who is Papa Lenin' Tfu! Zemlehyed has one Papa: Papa Koschei. He needs not nasty bald Papa Lenin. In Russian folklore Koschei the Deathless routinely dies; the variants of his story narratively resurrect him to kill him again. Like Koschei, the strength of folklore is consolidated through repetition and circulation in oral, print, visual, and filmic culture. But how do folktales evolve in response to great political and cultural upheaval, when the cycle is meant to stop' Arkadi and Boris Strugatski’s Soviet classic Monday Begins on Saturday: A Fairy Tale for Young Scientists (Ponedelʹnik nachinayetsya v subbotu: skazka dlya nauchnykh rabotnikov mladshego vozrasta; (1964; translated into English in 1977) ...

  • Cinderella in Chinatown: Seeking Identity and Cultural Values in Year of
           the Fish
    • Abstract: The tale of Cinderella has seen some 250 film adaptations (iftf.uwinnipeg.ca), most of which are based on versions by Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, and other Western European variants. American director David Kaplan’s Year of the Fish (2007) provides us with the first adaptation of the Chinese variant of the ninth-century Cinderella story, “Ye Xian” (also called “Yeh-Shen” or “Sheh Hsein,” all referring to the heroine).1 The tale shares affinities with the classical versions in both theme and plot. Ye Xian is mis-treated by her stepmother after her father’s death. She catches a goldfish and takes good care of it. The fish jumps out of the pond and rests on the bank when it sees Ye Xian. But the ... Read More

  • Vigilante Feminism: Revising Trauma, Abduction, and Assault in American
           Fairy-Tale Revisions
    • Abstract: Contemporary American fairy-tale revisions in popular film and young adult fantasy literature subvert the socialization of prescribed gender roles, offering “magical ways of dealing with the crisis of everyday life” (Greenhill and Matrix 8). Revision is an act of rebellion, casting off the limitations of the past, especially past gender roles. Cristina Bacchilega argues that postmodern re-visions “unmake” some of what fairy tales have traditionally held dear and “hold mirrors to the magic mirror of the fairy tale . . . to expose its artifices.” By upsetting the “authority inherent in the texts they appropriate,” they become “disobedient” (Bacchilega 29). As Pauline Greenhill and Sidney Eve Matrix articulate ... Read More

  • The Latin American Story Finder: A Guide to 470 Tales from Mexico, Central
           America, and South America, Listing Subjects and Sources by Sharon Barcan
           Elswit (review)
    • Abstract: With the number of Hispanic students in U.S. schools now standing at more than 12 million, or a quarter of the total student population—and growing—a Latin American story finder worthy of the name would fill a need. Anglo students, for example, share a body of knowledge with which teachers may also be familiar; most know the stories of “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Snow White,” or “Puss in Boots.” But Mexicans or Puerto Ricans may not share this knowledge. Using narratives that Latino students do know, such as tales of the foolish bungler Juan Bobo (John the Fool), well-known in Puerto Rico, or the widely told Mexican legend of the Virgin of Guadalupe, teachers can introduce these stories to those who do not ...

    • Abstract: The Princess and the Goblin and Other Fairy Tales is a thoughtfully curated collection of George MacDonald’s most popular fairy-tale texts and supplemental materials that provide critical context for the reader. The edition’s strength lies in its supplemental materials; the primary texts themselves are readily available online and in many other print editions, but the additional content supplied by editors Shelley King and John B. Pierce offers useful information about the author and the literary culture in which he wrote—and the ways in which his writing went on to influence other authors, most notably C. S. Lewis. The body of the book consists of an accessible but thorough introduction on ... Read More

  • Tales of the Brothers Grimm ed. by Karen Marta (review)
    • Abstract: Taking on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm is a difficult business for artists, in part because it has been done so well by artists and illustrators of the past (e.g., Edmund Dulac and Arthur Rackham) and by more contemporary artists (e.g., Kiki Smith, Paula Rego, and Claire Stigliani). Natalie Frank has risen to the challenge in her visual reworking of an astonishing number of the Grimms’ fairy tales in Tales of the Brothers Grimm, a large, handsome coffee table book. The unsanitized stories presented here consist of a large selection of the tales from the 1812 and 1815 volumes. The early versions of the stories are salacious and bawdy, as well as downright bloody, with many thought-provoking or ... Read More

    • Abstract: Edited by leading fairy-tale scholars Anne E. Duggan and Donald Haase, Folktales and Fairy Tales: Traditions and Texts from Around the World is a well-organized, wide-ranging, and near-comprehensive reference work of remarkable breadth and depth. Like its three-volume predecessor, The Greenwood Encyclopedia of Folktales and Fairy Tales, published in 2008, this compendium addresses a broad audience composed not only of scholars and specialists but also of students and novices, catering to a large variety of research interests as well as levels of expertise.

  • The Edinburgh Critical Edition of the Selected Writings of Andrew Lang ed.
           by Andrew Teverson, Alexandra Warwick, and Leigh Wilson (review)
    • Abstract: Andrew Teverson, Alexandra Warwick, and Leigh Wilson have succeeded in a daunting task: condensing the works of prolific writer Andrew Lang into just two volumes. Although many may know Lang best from his fairy-tale collections, he was also a folklorist, poet, essayist, novelist, literary critic, historian, anthropologist, biographer, and a scholar on religion and psychic phenomenon. With such a vast panoply of writings, the editors had to choose wisely to give a fair treatment to the broad scope of Lang’s scholarship. The collection does not cover all genres (Lang’s poetry and fiction are absent), but the editors make a strong case for the inclusion of each piece or category in the collection. ... Read More

  • Fairy Tales in Popular Culture ed. by Martin Hallett and Barbara Karasek

    • Abstract: In Fairy Tales in Popular Culture, editors Martin Hallett and Barbara Karasek face the task of assembling “a new anthology that reflects the evolution of the fairy tale over the last half-century” by providing examples of—or at least discussing—relatively recent prose, poetry, lyrics, comic books, graphic novels, illustration, art, theater, film, television, advertising, and new media that draw on the fairy-tale form (11). The volume begins with a preface, an introduction, and a short essay called “The Art of Retelling.” Each of these concise pieces sets up the rest of the book nicely, but several significant mistakes distract the knowledgeable fairy-tale scholar from enjoying them completely. How ... Read More

  • New Approaches to Teaching Folk and Fairy Tales ed. by Christa C. Jones
           and Claudia Schwabe (review)
    • Abstract: When I first started teaching an undergraduate course on fairy tales, I was astonished to find that there were almost no resources on fairy-tale pedagogy at the university level. In his foreword to New Approaches to Teaching Folk and Fairy Tales, Donald Haase describes experiencing this dearth of resources, despite the popularity of fairy-tale courses and the recent explosion of innovative fairy-tale scholarship. As Haase states, “The new possibilities for teaching the fairy-tale” opened up by that scholarship “remind us that it is time to take stock of the present state of our teaching” (x). This volume does exactly that in a thorough and informative way that will be useful to any teacher of fairy tales and ... Read More

  • From Dog Bridegroom to Wolf Girl: Contemporary Japanese Fairy-Tale
           Adaptations in Conversation with the West by Mayako Murai (review)
    • Abstract: Mayako Murai’s From Dog Bridegroom to Wolf Girl is an engaging academic text that, like many of the works Murai discusses, straddles cross-cultural boundaries by integrating Western and Japanese fairy-tale theory, analysis, and stories. Indeed, a lucid thread runs through the first half of Murai’s analysis, which explores the prominence of multilingualism in these texts as a result of their European beginnings, Japanese adaptations, and global reception, not to mention a range of intratextual language choices by the analyzed authors themselves. Murai takes an “antiessentialist approach, informed particularly by Euro-American post-structuralist feminist literary criticism,” which crosses boundaries by ... Read More

  • The Irish Fairy Tale: A Narrative Tradition from the Middle Ages to Yeats

    • Abstract: The Irish Fairy Tale: A Narrative Tradition from the Middle Ages to Yeats and Stephens uses fairy-tale structure to unpack the nature and relationship of both oral and written narrative in Irish literary history. Even within the bounds presented, from the Middle Ages through the early twentieth century, this is not a small task, to be sure. The introduction provides the necessary vocabulary and background for the coming arguments and assertions on the Irish fairy tale. The illustrations throughout the text help clarify for readers the textual mechanics of the author’s literary theories. Readers will appreciate the definitions and scaffolding placed to support the author’s ideas. For instance, the succinct ... Read More

The book is aimed at an undergraduate reading audience; Part I (Chapters 1–5) introduces basic vocabulary, concepts, and key theorists of semiotic film analysis, and Part II (Chapters 6–9) provides an in-depth semiotic film analysis of eight contemporary Japanese novel- and manga-inspired films and anime. Through this eclectic selection of visual texts, Okuyama reveals the rich intertextuality of ... Read More

  • The Politics of Magic: DEFA Fairy-Tale Films by Qinna Shen (review)
    • Abstract: Fairy tales have been intertwined with film since its invention. From Georges Méliès’s 1899 Cinderella to Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s 2016 The Huntsman: Winter’s War, fairy tales have inspired films for well over a century. As early as the 1920s, fairy-tale filmmakers in Europe were beginning to reference “movie magic.” In The Politics of Magic Qinna Shen examines an often forgotten but fascinating chapter in the history of fairy-tale film, the Märchenfilme of DEFA, the state-owned film studio of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). A traditional Christmas treat, Märchenfilme, or fairy-tale films, were released nearly every year from 1950 until the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Many were popular at ... Read More

  • Preserving the Magic Spell: Basile’s “The Tale of Tales” and Its
           Afterlife in the Fairy-Tale Tradition by Armando Maggi (review)
    • Abstract: Armando Maggi takes an in-depth look at the transformation of fairy tales from Basile to modern and postmodern retellings. The book is divided into three main parts, and it focuses first on The Tale of Tales (1634–1636) by Giambattista Basile and its impact on oral narratives in Italy and Spain. The second part discusses interpretations of Basile’s writing made by three figures of German Romanticism (Clemens Brentano, the Brothers Grimm, and Novalis). Finally, the last section examines postmodern fairy-tale interpretations and the connection between fairy tales and memoirs. An appendix of Maggi’s interpretations of the Grimms’ German translation of Basile’s stories is included at the end. In his overall ... Read More

  • Seven Miles of Steel Thistles: Reflections on Fairy Tales by Katherine
           Langrish (review)
    • Abstract: Katherine Langrish’s collection of reflections on fairy lore, fairy tales, and folklore falls somewhere in the whimsical space between anthology and essay. She positions her reflections among selections of primary texts, so that the line between the two seems to disappear in places. This book maintains the tone of Langrish’s blog of the same title, and all the reflections work toward Langrish’s concluding statement: “Fairy tales, contrary to what many people suppose, are not naïve” (281). Although numerous scholars have expressed this idea in different ways, it always bears repeating in a culture that rarely gives fairy tales their due. Langrish’s unconventional selection of primary texts makes ... Read More

  • Transforming Tales: Rewriting Metamorphosis in Medieval French Literature
           by Miranda Griffin (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Miranda Griffin’s study of transformation in medieval French literature is misleading—not that she does not deal with French medieval literature and the moralized adaptation of Ovid’s Metamorphosis. Her book certainly does this with great acumen. However, she goes much further. Her book is a dense, complex, and enlightening theoretical study about the significance of transformation for writing, identity formation, gender relations, and philosophy. Griffin’s book focuses primarily on how the fourteenth-century Ovide moralisé influenced in one way or another a number of fascinating medieval narratives that involve aspects of metamorphosis. Her book is composed of six chapters, each ... Read More
