The Interpretation of Fairy Tales
By Marie-Louise von Franz
398.09 F857i 1996 Greenfield Open Stacks

An insightful and thorough book on the subject of the fairy tale, Marie-Louise von Franz explicates a number of fairy tales to reveal an unseen psychological depth. Rather than being the results of childhood fantasies, she posits that fairy tales are actually manifestations of struggles within the human psyche, and can be applied to any stage of life. This book is well worth the read for those interested in folklore, psychology and storytelling.
