Boys and Girls Forever: Eleventh Post (Fairy Tales)

Posted in Literary Studies at 2:05 pm by Rosepixie

Boys and Girls ForeverLurie’s discussion of fairy tales is a bit simplistic, but she made interesting choices in what stories to reference. I’ve read a number of the stories that she references, but I don’t agree with all of her interpretations. I would like to go back and read some of the stories now, though. I’m struck by Lurie’s focus on stories with Victorian lessons and reversals of roles. It was interesting, but not incredibly compelling.
