Zipes READ Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion The Classical Genre for Children and the Process of Civilization Se capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within cultureFor this new edition the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date The introduction is a stultifying morass of subject specific technical jargon thankfully Zipes eases up some in the following chaptersThe biographical aspects were the most interesting part of the book to me Zipes describes the lives of many of the writerstranscribers of fairy tales such as Hans Christian Andersen and the women of the French salons though by the final chapter on Walt Disney the arguments re the psychological motivations of the writers and creators gets borderline scurrilousHis arguments re the historical and social are not as well made I felt because they hinge on these psychological biographies of the dead but since I read this for fun not as a scholar I can t really refute or support his thesis either way

Zipes READ Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion The Classical Genre for Children and the Process of Civilization Llectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives their behavior values and relationship to society As Jack Zipes convincingly shows fairy tales have always been a powerful discour The early chapters of this book are particularly good where Zipes shows how the fairy tales of Perrault Grimm and Andersen are not simply folklore but were adapted to promote the upper class values of the day More examples of the tales before and after such transformation would have been nice but perhaps Red Riding Hood was the only good example available The next two chapters on George MacDonald Oscar Wilde and L Frank Baum and on Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany are interesting history but arguments concerning significance are weak The last chapter concerning modern times is poor first because it tries to fit its analysis into a Freudian framework and second because it focuses only on deliberately subversive literature none of which I had heard of before with no mention at all of popular writers such as Dr Seuss and Sendak and only passing mention of Tolkien and CS Lewis nor is there any mention of other other reality challenging genres or of games such as Dungeon Dragons which might be seen as subverting fairy tales themselves
