Although readers and filmgoers are strongly familiar with Disney’s sanitized child-centric fairy tales, they are quick to catch on to reworkings of classic tales into a contemporary context. The rise is such retellings seems to indicate that readers are hungry for a new narrative, one that hearkens back to the old yet moves the storyline forward to reflect conditions of the modern world. No mere escapist fantasies, the reimagined fairy tales of the late 20th and early 21st centuries reflect social, political and cultural truths. Sixteen essays consider fairy tales recreated through short stories, novels, poetry, and the graphic novel from both best-selling and lesser-known writers, applying a variety of perspectives, including postmodernism, psychoanalysis, Marxism, feminism, queer theory and gender studies. Along with the classic fairy tales, fiction from writers such as Neil Gaiman (Stardust) and Gregory Macquire (Wicked) is covered.

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. For this new edition, the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date.

A rare discovery in the world of fairy tales—now for the first time in English Move over, Cinderella: Make way for the Turnip Princess! And for the “Cinderfellas” in these stories, which turn our understanding of gender in fairy tales on its head. With this volume, the holy trinity of fairy tales—the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen—becomes a quartet. In the 1850s, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schönwerth's work was lost—until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manu­scripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive. Now, for the first time, Schönwerth's lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than seventy stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Elias Canetti

In one of the few contemporary studies of Nobel laureate Elias Canetti's life and works available in English, Thomas Falk clearly sets forth the author's contribution to twentieth-century thought and literature. Canetti is not only a creative writer but also a man of letters in the European tradition. The author of just one novel, Auto-da-Fe, and several plays, the erudite Canetti is prized most for his nonfiction writings: three volumes of autobiography, several collections of essays and aphorisms, and above all the exhaustive cross-cultural study of the psychodynamics of crowd behavior, Crowds and Power. Canetti's autobiographies cover the first 30 years of his life: his earliest memories of Ruschuk, Bulgaria, where he was born in 1905; his childhood and adolescence in Manchester, Vienna, Zurich, and Frankfurt; his young adulthood in the politically turbulent Vienna of the 1930s. Falk uses these accounts to examine the biographical context of Canetti's work, assessing the impact on his literary consciousness of the early death of Canetti's father, his complex relationship with his mother, and his friendships with influential Viennese intellectuals. Writing almost exclusively in German, the language favored by his parents for intimate discourse, Canetti was early exposed to - and mastered - several languages. This linguistic sophistication is an important element of his work, informing, in particular, Canetti's theory of the acoustic mask, which holds that each person has a manner of speaking that encompasses not only his or her base language and dialect but numerous modes of expression that reflect both social background and individual psychology. Falk assesses Canetti's use of the acoustic mask in his novel and dramas as a component of characterization and in his nonfiction as a means of better understanding the human condition. The cornerstone of Canetti's work - both imaginative and essayistic - Falk writes, is Crowds and Power, first published in German in 1960 after 25 years of literary research into the myths and cultures primeval to modern. "It could be said," Falk argues, "that all his writings in one way or another treat the topic Canetti examines in this major work": the "total alteration of consciousness" that transpires when individual identity is overtaken by the psychology of the crowd. Falk devotes an entire chapter to this complex study, which draws from the fields of mythology, religion, history, anthropology, biography, and psychology. Sometimes described as a formidably difficult writer, Canetti, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1981, has to date not enjoyed the increased popularity that can accompany this distinction. While some may be put off by Canetti's sober consideration of society's ills, Falk contends that the author's intellectual passion and sense of moral responsibility, as well as his gift for storytelling, render his work more than worthwhile. "Anyone interested in studying and in contemplation," Falk concludes, "will find Canetti a stimulating and accessible teacher."

Iris Murdoch And Elias Canetti

"Since the revelation of Iris Murdoch's (1919-1999) affair with Elias Canetti (1905-1994), scholarship on their relationship has been largely biographical, focusing in particular on Canetti's alleged role as the real-life model for some of Murdoch's most invidious protagonists. Little research, however, has been done on the extensive common ground between the two writers' literary projects. In this groundbreaking comparative study, Elaine Morley conducts a careful philological comparison of Murdoch's and Canetti's works, from their literary themes and theories to their idiosyncratic stylistic practices. Morley demonstrates that these authors were preoccupied with a common philosophical problem, and that they were in fact not only personally close, but also more intellectually allied than has been previously thought. Elaine Morley is Lecturer in German and Comparative Literature at Queen Mary, University of London where she convenes the MA in Anglo-German Cultural Relations."

The Encyclopedia of Uralic Mythologies is a descriptive and analytic compendium of the mythologies of the peoples speaking Uralic languages - from the Lapps in Northern Europe to the Selkups and Nganasans in Siberia. The peoples of the Uralic linguistic family, being the aborigines of the Eurasiatic North, survived a long and complicated history. They preserved their original religious and mythological traditions, where traces of primitive beliefs and archaic religious systems (e.g. shamanism) merge with ancient influences (e.g. the Indo-Iranian and Ancient Germanic) and into the later impacts of modern religions. The central part of this series is to be the explanatory and etymological dictionary of mythological terms of Uralic traditions. This volume has an index of mythological terms, a glossary, list of literature and an introduction devoted to the history of the given Uralian nations.

The spirit of nationalism that swept over the small peoples of Europe in the early nineteenth century touched faraway Finland and started the Finns on the quest of the Finnish. There as elsewhere scholars who were also patriots found that the native tongue, lost to the educated and the well-to-do, had been preserved in the songs and stories which were current among the peasants. Elias Lönnrot spent a long and busy life collecting those ancient runos from which he succeeded in building up a national epic, the Kalevala. This is Lönnrot's great contribution to his own country and to the world. Beside the material for the Kalevala Lönnrot made important collections of lyrics, proverbs, and stories. During his time and since other patriot scholars have made faithful records of the songs and tales which the old Finnish minstrels, the runolaulajat, chanted to the strains of the kantele. The mass of such material now gathered together in the archives of the Society of Finnish Literature at Helsingfors is imposing in bulk and of great importance to the student of comparative folklore.
