Product description


Fairy Tales and Feminism is a rich and readable book that covers a broad spectrum in time and space. Several appearances of the fairy tale occur in a balanced equilibrium, from seventeenth-century story-tellers to the early twenty-first-century TV shows. You do not have to be a member of the women's movement to find the articles exciting and inspiring, but the book does prove that no critical paradigm has provided so many interesting and influential insights into the fairy tales as feminism.--International Research Society for Childrens Literature

Fairy Tales and Feminism is the first book since the 1980s to present a comprehensive approach toward analyzing the impact of feminism on all aspects of the literary fairy tale. . . . This book will have a great reception.--Jack Zipes "University of Minnesota "

Haase's overview of 'Feminist Fairy-Tale Scholarship' is historical and critical at once. It also functions as a helpful tool for all those who wish to understand the development of feminist fairytale research. Haase highlights the issue of gender and socialization, female image, women writers and the fairytale, and more. The extensive bibliography at the end of the book is a great resource for students and scholars in the field, as it references the cornerstone of feminist fairytale research."--Journal of Folklore Research

The essays in Fairy Tales and Feminism do offer some new and compelling reinterpretations.--Journal of American Folklore

This impressively wide-ranging collection of essays builds on the growing recognition by feminist critics of the major role that fairy tales have played in the formation of a global 'literature of their own.' By resituating texts and national traditions in a cross-cultural framework, this book valuably foregrounds the complexity of the fairy tale's pervasive engagement with gender."--U. C. Knoepflmacher "Princeton University " --This text refers to the paperback edition.
