Once Upon a Time Is Now|
Spring 2008 not offered
While Briar Rose, a.k.a. Dornroschen, had her 100-year-long beauty sleep in the Kingdom of Magic, the Brothers Grimm produced a collection of over 200 "Children's and Household Tales" in the real world. Many of these are now famous all over the world, while some are known only to scholars. This course will focus on close readings of the Grimms' work, on their sources and successors, and on folk and literary tales from several European countries. By consulting the ever-increasing research in comparative literature, history, sociology and psychology, we will discover many new threads in the fabric of fantasy and fiction.
