Review

"An extraordinary book, and a 'first' on the topic."-Jack Zipes "Examining the workings of the powerful desire machines built into postmodern versions of 'Snow White,' 'Little Red Riding Hood,' 'Beauty and the Beast,' and 'Bluebeard,' Cristina Bacchilega's astute rereadings uncover intriguing mirrorings and revisions."-Ruth B. Bottigheimer, State University of New York at Stony Brook

5.0 out of 5 stars Postmodern Fairy Tales May 25 2000
Format:Paperback
Cristina Bacchilega's exploration of postmodern revisions and appropriations of fairy tales is a superb endeavor. She provides an excellent overview of the fairy tale as a genre and goes on to explicate narrative and gender strategies in well-known tales like "Snow White," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Bluebeard." She frames her analysis of postmodern tales through a deconstructive lens, looking for each revision's ability to challenge conventional fairy tale morals, to be both "questioning and affirmative without necessarily being recuperative or politcally subversive." Her approach is exciting and her analysis brings new depth and meaning to fairy tales, making the familiar new once again.
