Fairy Tale Gifts 2012: Dark Faerie Queene
Our next entry in the Fairy Tale Gifts 2012 Giveaway is from Dark Faerie Queene:
1. Tanith Lee: Red as Blood: or Tales from the Sisters Grimmer
Tanith Lee became one of my favourite authors after I read her novel "White as Snow" and I am writing my MA thesis about Lee's and Angela Carter's fairy tale adaptations so this book would be very useful in writing my thesis.
2. Heidi Anne Heiner: Sleeping Beauties: Sleeping Beauty and Snow White Tales from Around the world
I am really interested in what kinds of different versions of fairy tales there are in the world. Sleeping Beauty and Snow White were part of my favourite fairy tales when I was a little girl.
3. Jack Zipes: The Irresistible Fary Tale: The Cultural and Social History of the Genre
Jack Zipes is one of the most important scholars who study fairy tales and I would like to possess as many works of his as possible so that I can use his books in my thesis.
4.Kevin Paul Smith: The Postmodern Fairy Tale: Folkloric Intertexts in Contemporary Fiction
This book sounds really interesting and I am obsessed with contemporary fairy tale retellings and adaptations
5. Diane Purkiss: Troublesome Things: A History of Fairies and Fairy Stories
Fairies are one of my other obsessions and I really like any kind of scholarly work about them.
