Description

The heart of this course will be a close reading of numerous tales collected by the Grimm Brothers, both classics and many lesser-known tales of equal or greater interest. We will study the genesis of Grimms’ collection, which was very different from what most people imagine, and put the tales in quite a different light. We will also read important scholarship on the Grimms’ tales, while at the same time placing them within larger interpretive contexts such as psychoanalysis, structural anthropology, Marxist social critique, feminism, and Jungian psychology. Both the “iconography” and the “archaeology” of the fairy tale will be explored, as will the relationship between folk tales and at tales such as Shakespeare’s Tempest and Mozart’s Magic Flute.

Class Format:

Taught in English.
