Overcoming Bias : Fairy Tales Were Cynical

A recent New Yorker article on fairy tales fascinated me (quotes below). Apparently the fairy tales once “told at rural firesides” were for adults, full of sex and violence, and cynical – they did not often affirm common ideals.

10 Strange Theater Superstitions! | Paranormal Encounters

"Theater Folk are a superstitious lot, and considering the amount of things that can (and do) go wrong in a performance, it’s not surprising that folklore has popped up giving an explanation to these occurrences. These myths go above and beyond walking under ladders and opening umbrellas inside (although those are adhered to as well!); these are specifically for those working in the arts. In this list I delve into the world of theater superstitions and try to provide the reasons for their existence."

Cinderella - Gustave Dore - WikiPaintings.org

Cinderella - Gustave Dore - WikiPaintings.org | Fairy tales, Folklore, and Myths | Scoop.it

Artist: Gustave Dore

 

"Although he created many serious works for epic poems by great authors, Dore also illustrated many fairy tales, including Little Red Riding Hood and Cendrillon, or Cinderella. The story of Cinderella was just as much a cultural influence in the 19th century as it is today, as it is a story of unjust circumstances and the human ability to hope that magic can help us overcome those circumstances. It was in the 19th century that the Brother’s Grimm wrote the version of the story that was widely popular at the time. Their large compilation of their fairy tales was first published in 1812, and numerous editions followed the first for the next throughout the 19th century, all of which were extensively illustrated, including works from Gustave Dore."

"Heidi Anne Heiner: From Grimm's fairytale food by Bee Wilson: 'Grimm's Fairy Tales, first published in 1812, are about many things: magic and families, wickedness and talking animals. But running through many of them is a brutal obsession with food. The Brothers Grimm (Jacob and Wilhelm) collected stories of hunger: what horrors it will drive some people to and how sweet it feels to satisfy it.'"

"Editor's note: Fairy tales don't often features actual fairies, so it's intriguing to have a poem that brings them to us (or us to them). Hercynius has given us a vivid peek into nature as well, with this work.

"When we pass, do you stay behind?
"Of you and me something yet mingling,
