AUTHOR

Zipes, Jack

SUMMARY

In his latest book, fairy tales expert Jack Zipes explores the question of why some fairy tales "work" and others don't, why the fairy tale is uniquely capable of getting under the skin of culture and staying there. Why, in other words, fairy tales "stick." Long an advocate of the fairy tale as a serious genre with wide social and cultural ramifications, Jack Zipes here makes his strongest case for the idea of the fairy tale not just as a collection of stories for children but a profoundly important genre. Why Fairy Tales Stick will contain tow chapters on the history and theory of the genre, followed by case studies of famous tales (including "Cinderella," "Snow White," and "Bluebeard"), followed by a summary chapter on the problematic nature of traditional storytelling in the twenty-first century.Zipes, Jack is the author of 'Why Fairy Tales Stick The Evolution And Relevance of a Genre', published 2006 under ISBN 9780415977814 and ISBN 0415977819.
