Sources for the Analysis and Interpretation of Folk and Fairy Tales

The art of the fairy tale has been around for centuries. Their continuing popularity indicates that there is more to them than sheer entertainment value, that they contain a deeper meaning which touches us on some profound level, and helps us in some way to understand or cope with the world.

Collected here are sources that deal with the analysis of fairy or folk tales, from literary as well as psychological traditions, ranging from feminist analysis to Marxist.
