"The Irresistible Fairy Tale" by Jack Zipes

“The Irresistible Fairy Tale” by Jack Zipes

Even though I am only on page 38, I can highly recommend this book, especially if you are interested in the history of Fairy Tales, folklore, myths or any other stories….

“Fairy tales were not created or intended for children.  Yet they resonate with them, and children recall them as they grow to confront the injustices and contradictions of so-called real worlds.  We cannot explain why the origins of the fairy tale are so inexplicable and elusive.  But we can elucidate why they continue to be irresistible and breathe memetically through us, offering hope that we can change ourselves while changing the world.”  page 20
