There are people who cannot differentiate between fable and fairy tales because of their similarities. For this week’s Poetics, I’d like to narrow down the field, by specifically looking at the myriad of creatures, beasts and characters given life in this tradition. Some studies have suggested that girls who read a lot of fairy tales or have a lot of them read to them have lower self images than others. An example is a myth that the school library is haunted.

Abstract: There are several different versions of this tale in Persian and as they have been orally transmitted from one generation to another, the originality of any of them cannot be proven. And, in a confusing way, legends can sometimes blend with myths. However, with the invention of printing presses, and later on radio, TV, and now the internet, many local folklore are now shared worldwide and get turned into legends. (I know, it gets confusing!) The purpose of folklore is often just to help us understand better the nature of mankind.

Jack and the Beanstalk teaches the reader to launch an assault against pride; Cinderella, to embrace humility; Beauty and the Beast, to overcome prejudice with love. Both are also animals of the otherworld in both Cymric and Irish legend. And now I will tell you a fairy tale: to make you understand it at all I must put it in the shape of a tale. Bottigheimer This impressively wide-ranging collection of essays builds on the growing recognition by feminist critics of the major role that fairy tales have played in the formation of a global 'literature of their own.' By resituating texts and national traditions in a cross-cultural framework, this book valuably foregrounds the complexity of the fairy tale's pervasive engagement with gender."
