Product description

Review

Bottingheimer s work is as always provocative and interesting. Journal of American Folklore
The genius of this slender volume is not so much that it provides a totally new history, but rather that it presents not only Bottigheimer s research but also that of John Ellis, Heinz Rolleke, Nancy Canepa, and many others in cogent, persuasive, eminently readable prose A fascinating study in intertextuality, this book includes a helpful list of the 77 tales discussed, categorized by the author. CHOICE
Some scholars say that, whether or not one agrees with all of Bottigheimer s conclusions, her work is a useful questioning of popularly held beliefs. Chronicle Review
This book will forever change the way that scholars and readers view a genre the literary fairy tale that remains vital today. Suzanne Magnanini, author of Fairy-Tale Science: Monstrous Generation in the Tales of Straparola and Basile"

A fascinating study in intertextuality, this book includes a helpful list of the 77 tales discussed, categorized by the author." -- CHOICE

"Some scholars say that, whether or not one agrees with all of Bottigheimer's conclusions, her work is a useful questioning of popularly held beliefs." -- Chronicle Review

"This book will forever change the way that scholars and readers view a genre--the literary fairy tale--that remains vital today." -- Suzanne Magnanini, author of Fairy-Tale Science: Monstrous Generation in the Tales of Straparola and Basile
