Postmodern Fairy Tales seeks to understand the fairy
tale not as children's literature but within the broader context of
folklore and literary studies. It focuses on the narrative
strategies through which women are portrayed in four classic
stories: "Snow White," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Beauty and the
Beast," and "Bluebeard." Bacchilega traces the oral sources of each
tale, offers a provocative interpretation of contemporary versions
by Angela Carter, Robert Coover, Donald Barthelme, Margaret Atwood,
and Tanith Lee, and explores the ways in which the tales are
transformed in film, television, and musicals.
