Edited by Kérchy, Anna

eBook Available: Postmodern Reinterpretations of Fairy Tales:

Description

These essays analyze the intersection of fairy tale, fantasy and reality in postmodern artistic texts. The editor underscores the transformation of both the reader-writer relationship and epistemological and ontological considerations by new technologies and emerging subgenres. This book contains 12 color plates and ten black and white photographs.

Reviews

“…the volume includes essays that present exploratory discussions of modern-day reinventions of the fairy tale and fantasy from a variety of perspectives that draw on emergent critical discourses…” - Prof. Dr. Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère

“The editor’s introduction and organization of the volume exhibit a strong grasp of how important it is to relate generic, technological, political, and narrative dynamics with one another…”-Prof. Cristina Bacchilega, University of Hawaii

“…this range of objects and of topics makes the volume genuinely timely, genuinely impressive and genuinely worthwhile.”-Prof. Stephen Benson, University of East Anglia

"As it stands, Postmodern Reinterpretations of Fairy Tales is an uncompromisingly comphrensive and offers (perhaps too broad) an overview of the field and its potentials, its charming princes and clammy frogs." -- Prof. Karin Kukkonen, St. John's College, Oxford
