Description

Looks beyond the Freudian interpretation of fairy tales, to the tellers of tales and to the social and cultural contexts in which the tales are told. This volume considers tales through the centuries, from the ancient sibyl to 18th-century salonieres, from Disney to Angela Carter.

With illustrations (some colour) facsimiles, map and portraits (some colour).
