How to Read Fairy Tales
NOTE: You will receive a link to the registration form on your receipt after your purchase.
Fairy tales are universal. We find them in every time and in every culture. For as long as there have been words, people have been telling these stories. Why?
Why do we tell these stories? Why do we share these stories with our children? What is the relationship between fairy tales and great literature? What is the difference between folktales and literary fairy tales? What is the difference between a fairy tale and a cautionary tale? What is the difference between Perrault and Lang and Grimm and Anderson? Why did the Grimm Brothers think it was their Christian duty to collect these tales? But most importantly, HOW do we read these tales of wonder, delight, violence, and weirdness. Discover how the oldest stories are connected to The Greatest Story Ever Told.
