Descriptions du produit

If there is one genre that has captured the imagination of people in all walks of life throughout the world, it is the fairy tale. Yet we still have great difficulty understanding how it originated, evolved, and spread - or why so many people cannot resist its appeal, no matter how it changes or what form it takes. In this book, renowned fairy-tale expert Jack Zipes presents a provocative new theory about why fairy tales were created and retold - and why they became such an indelible and infinitely adaptable part of cultures around the world. Drawing on cognitive science, evolutionary theory, anthropology, psychology, literary theory, and other fields, Zipes presents a nuanced argument about how fairy tales originated in ancient oral cultures, how they evolved through the rise of literary culture and print, and how, in our own time, they continue to change through their adaptation in an ever-growing variety of media. In making his case, Zipes considers a wide range of fascinating examples, including fairy tales told, collected, and written by women in the nineteenth century; Catherine Breillat's film adaptation of Perrault's "Bluebeard"; and contemporary fairy-tale drawings, paintings, sculptures, and photographs that critique canonical print versions. While we may never be able to fully explain fairy tales, The Irresistible Fairy Tale provides a powerful theory of how and why they evolved - and why we still use them to make meaning of our lives.

Does not quite cohere. 23 juin 2012
Par Priscilla Manwaring - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Zipes is a noted scholar and a real authoritiy on the fairy tale. This book demonstrates some of his very detailed knowledge. But as a whole, the book does not quite cohere. It is not the history of a genre, but a partial history of the European fairy tale and a very limited discussion of modern directions the fairy tale has taken in print and non-print media in modern British and American culture. It is also a rebuttal of certain other scholars who have emphasized the fairy tale as an elite literary development which spread to the "folk" generally rather than the other way around. I agree with Zipes and I think he is right but I do not think he makes a convincing case here. For those college students new to folklore, there is not enough explanation of terms. Partly this is a point that Zipes is making; the terms are very difficult to define explicitly. M. Gubar makes a similar point about children's literature in her discusssions (elsewhere) of that topic, but her approach is much more reasoned and persuasive than the approach Zipes takes here. I should add that Zipes is a prolific author who has written on the issues in this book in many of his other books so it is understandable that he does not want to rehash what he has said before. Nevertheless, if a reader only peruses this one book under review, the social and cultural history of the genre that the subtitle indicates will be lacking. Zipes is particularly good here on the subversive elements of the fairy tale, and the way in which the gender of fairy tale collectors, writers, and adaptors influences what they collect, write, and adapt.

Not only an excellent overview, but filled with intriguing avenues of inquiry 30 janvier 2014
Par K. Lowry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As other reviewers have noted, this 2012 volume is a useful synopsis of the Big Ideas and Big Questions in the study of folk and fairy tales. It seems safe to say that there can be few aspects of this area of scholarship that Zipes has not considered and analyzed. His breadth of knowledge and analytic ingenuity contribute to the case he makes quite convincingly, here: that these little stories can offer us significant insights.

I was particularly interested in the many unfamiliar tales Zipes reproduces in the chapter on "innocent persecuted heroines." The question of why some stories provoke retellings, while other stories are forgotten, is a fascinating one. The implications of these cultural choices are political, of course--but more fundamentally, they tell us something useful about the way our brains work.

This book is valuable for casual readers; for those of us new to the study of fairy tales; and--I would think--for scholars of the field.

Fascinating look at the origins of fairy tales 19 octobre 2013
Par Becca - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I enjoyed this book greatly, although some of it is repetitious from his other books. If you read just one of Jack Zipes' books, though, it should be this one.

The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is that I wish he'd provide more translations of foreign-language story titles. He seems to expect that everyone speaks fluent German and French.

One book for researchers on cultural-historical effects on children's literature 16 août 2013
Par Chiang Yow June - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a volume that gathers Zipes's previous researches altogether, forming another angle into this specific genre. Really helpful for my study!

Jack Zipes is a master at his craft: writing on fairy & folk tales! He is one of the best living today. This is another great literary work in his catalog and a must read
