Fairy Tales – What’s Old is New

Well, our show on Jane Eyre is officially live, and we’re ready for the hate mail to come rolling in (please leave it at oldisnewpodcast(at)gmail.com or attached to the show notes for the podcast, not here).

Now that that is taken care of, Nicole and I are turning our attention to fairy tales!

We’ve been gathering literary criticism, original fairy tales, and retellings. I have a whole shelf full already, including these:

I would love to know more about some of your favorite fairy tales, your favorite retellings, or your favorite fairy tale analysis.

Oh, and if you would like to read fairy tales along with us, feel free to grab our button:

  • I love Fairy Tales! There is one that came out yesterday, A True Princess. You can read about it on my blog on Thursday. Diane Zahler is touring the blogosphere with it.

  • Grabbing on to the button–it fits in perfectly with my Fairy Tale Fridays and the fairy tale challenge I joined. I’ve been reading several fairy tales a week, often from more than one book at a time. They are all so different and I’m thoroughly delighted to find so many great new ones.

  • I went through this huge fairy tale phase at the beginning of last year and managed to read some interesting analysis. I can’t wait to see where this topic leads you!

  • Nan

    I received the book My Mother she Killed me, My Father he ate Me for Christmas, but I have read it yet. I hope to get to it soon!

  • I really enjoyed reading Tolkien’s essay ‘On Fairy Stories’ that can be found in the Tolkien Reader. Interesting look at fairy tales and fairy stories.

  • I read Godmother a couple years ago. It was a fantastic take on the Cinderella fairytale. Really eerie.
