In this, the first modern study of the ancient fairytale, Graham Anderson asks whether the familiar children's fairytale of today existed in the ancient world. He examines texts from the classical period and finds many stories which resemble those we know today, including: * a Jewish Egyptian Cinderella * a Snow White whose enemy is the goddess Artemis * a Pied Piper at Troy. He puts forward many previously unsuspected candidates as classical variants of the modern fairytale and argues that the degree of violence and cruelty in the ancient tales means they must have been meant for adults.

This publication reflects upon a multitude of themes: relationships, daily occurrences in life, friends, society, and history. The author has tried to present the emotional feelings of both sides in the various stages of relationship development. Men and women ultimately fail to bring possible relationships into the realm of positive development because of false perceptions they assume about the other person. Both sides are afraid to openly communicate thus destroying possible relationships in their embryonic stages of development. Daily occurrences of life affect all of us at one time or another. Every time our routine is affected, our schedule is thrown off center; our emotional makeup creates stressful overtones for those we come in contact with. Some of these situations we recover from quickly; some of them linger in the back of our mind for extended periods of time. Friends have a profound effect upon our life style. Just when we feel we know someone very well they take their behavior mode in a new direction causing us confusion while planting the seeds of doubt in our relationship. Some of these situations are corrected through open diologue; some are destined to remain as we remember them during the last visual contact with this person. Thus all of us at one time or another want to "Turn Back The Clock" and do some repair work. Leaving our house in the morning we come in contact with strangers. Depending upon circumstances once in a while our paths cross as we develop contact. Some assumptions of others are pleasant and grow with the passage of time. Others are ill fated through bad vibrations at the start and have to be severed as soon as possible for our own personal well being. Each of us has a personal history to reflect upon in our memory bank. Thoughts upon family, the town or city where we grew up, a special someone whom we lost contact with all enter into our thoughts from time to time. Again pleasantness and sadness come together as we reflect upon what is and what might have been.

Myths and fairytales are our rich heritage; a veritable feast of ancient wisdom passed down through the ages in the memorable form of stories. While almost any story will have deep meaning to some individuals, some of the time, this book presents a collection of stories that these maestros of dramatherapy have found to have a powerful effect almost without fail. These are the 'golden' stories of Sesame. The authors introduce the Sesame approach and describe the advantages of using myth and fairy tale as a central theme in a therapy session. The Sesame approach has been found to produce striking results with myriad client groups, including individuals with learning difficulties, offenders in psychiatric settings and children with emotional and behavioural difficulties and adults in mental health care. Dramatherapy with Myth and Fairytale provides a treasure trove of timeless stories that can be adapted and applied to the needs of different client groups and the style of each therapist. It also includes introductory exercises, warm-ups and scene setting suggestions. The book will be an invaluable source of inspiration for dramatherapists and dramatherapy students, creative arts therapists, storytellers, psychotherapists, Jungian psychoanalysts, teachers and play therapists.

In this major work by the distinguished Swiss folklorist Max LA1/4thi, the traditional fairytale is examined from two related points of view, that of aesthetics and that of anthropology. LA1/4thi shows that fairytales are more than just a pleasing form; they present a particular way of looking at the world and at human existence. Thus, they must be evaluated in terms of what they say about man and the human condition. This exemplary study will be read with enjoyment and profit not only by the literary scholar and folklore professional but by any reader who has ever delighted in fairytales.

The fairy tale has become one of the dominant cultural forms and genres internationally, thanks in large part to its many manifestations on screen. Yet the history and relevance of the fairy-tale film have largely been neglected. In this follow-up to Jack Zipes’s award-winning book The Enchanted Screen (2011), Fairy-Tale Films Beyond Disney offers the first book-length multinational, multidisciplinary exploration of fairy-tale cinema. Bringing together twenty-three of the world’s top fairy-tale scholars to analyze the enormous scope of these films, Zipes and colleagues Pauline Greenhill and Kendra Magnus-Johnston present perspectives on film from every part of the globe, from Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, to Jan Švankmajer’s Alice, to the transnational adaptations of 1001 Nights and Hans Christian Andersen. Contributors explore filmic traditions in each area not only from their different cultural backgrounds, but from a range of academic fields, including criminal justice studies, education, film studies, folkloristics, gender studies, and literary studies. Fairy-Tale Films Beyond Disney offers readers an opportunity to explore the intersections, disparities, historical and national contexts of its subject, and to further appreciate what has become an undeniably global phenomenon.

Kafka, Gothic and Fairytale is an original comparative study of the novels and some of the related shorter punishment fantasies in terms of their relationship to the Gothic and fairytale conventions. It is an absorbing subject and one which, while keeping to the basic facts of his life, mind-set and literary method, shows Kafka's work in a genuinely new light. The contradiction between his persona with its love of fairytale and his shadow with its affinity with Gothic is reflected in his work, which is both Gothic and other than Gothic, both fairytale-like and the every denial of fairytale. Important subtexts of the book are the close connexion between Gothic and fairytale and between both of these and the dream. German text is quoted in translation unless the emphasis is on the meaning of individual words or phrases, in which case the words in question are quoted and their English meanings discussed. This means that readers without German can, for the first time, begin to understand the underlying ambiguity of Kafka's major fictions. The book is addressed to all who are interested in the meaning of his work and its place in literary history, but also to the many readers in the English and German-speaking worlds who share the author's enthusiasm for Gothic and fairytale.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject German Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 2,2, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen, language: English, abstract: Are princesses still living happily ever after or did they change? This paper seeks out to answer this question by a taking a look at fairy tales and their Disney movie adaptions. It will be argued that a comparison of Disney films and traditional fairytales offers a great possibility to teach gender. The goal of this paper is, therefore, to enhance the understanding of older and newer storytelling concerning gender and its benefits for teaching English as a foreign language. Listening to marvelous tales and stories is and has always been omnipresent in children’s life. Everyone knows the Brothers Grimm and Disney who are popular for their fantastic stories. These stories have been patterns for many Disney movies that have become omnipresent and essential in todays media. Especially Disney is very popular among young students. It is obvious that children are likely to identify with these stories. Consequently, it is important to analyze views and values that are presented in these newer films in comparison to older and more traditional Grimm fairytales. The first part of this paper offers a description of gender roles and depictions in Grimm and Disney in order to promote the understanding of the two genres. Moreover, there will be a focus on the development of Disney's gender depiction because of the obvious change in their portrayal of female characters. In the second part, then, these theoretical ideas and background information are applied to two concrete stories by Grimm and Disney. Firstly, the fairytale "Der Froschkönig oder der eiserne Heinrich" will be analyzed concerning its depiction of gender. Secondly, Disney’s adapted film "The Princess and the Frog" will also be analyzed according to its depiction of gender and the change that has been made since Grimm's story. The third part deals with the concrete benefits of teaching gender through these two stories. This chapter will also focus on the teaching potential of these Disney films and the learning outcome. To sum up, the third part of this work illustrates the potential that a comparison of Grimms' and Disney’s depiction of gender offers.

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, language: English, abstract: In A. Bayette's novels, traditional fairytale discourse is the source of many borrowings, defining the plot, composition, system of archetypical images and stylistics of its texts. The archetype as an invariant of a fairytale plot or motif is also actualised in the form of a whole series of binary oppositions constituting the archetypical core of the folklore tale: sleep - waking, captivity - liberation, destruction - restoration, prohibition - violation of prohibition. The role status of characters can also be conditioned by traditional opposition: for example, the author of wishes is a forced executor of wishes. However, the main binary structure that defines the originality of the art picture of the world of fairytale novels Bayette, can be conventionally presented as a confrontation between static and dynamism. Staticism is understood as a predictable adherence to a certain algorithm of actions in the limited space of a classical plot, and dynamism is understood as freedom to break a given scheme, freedom to creatively transform a fairytale canon. Turning once again to the fairytale, the author, just like its heroes, rethinks what is known to create their own worlds and encourage the reader to create their own stories.
