Abstract

If there is one genre that has captured the imagination of people in all walks of life throughout the world, it is the fairy tale. Yet we still have great difficulty understanding how it originated, evolved, and spread--or why so many people cannot resist its appeal, no matter how it changes or what form it takes. In this book, renowned fairy-tale expert Jack Zipes presents a provocative new theory about why fairy tales were created and retold--and why they became such an indelible and infinitely adaptable part of cultures around the world. Drawing on cognitive science, evolutionary

Abstract

Through an original analysis of its structure and dynamics, the fairy tale ceases to be one of the many genres of fantastic narrative and rises to become a category, a universal modality both of the storytelling and of a world vision. The objective is to render the fairy tale a sort of emblematic location, where the study of narrative texts integrates itself with the socio-historical contexts of the Irish tradition.
