From the Publisher:
In this, the first collection of essays devoted to fairy tale films, Pauline Greenhill and Sidney Eve Matrix stress that fairy tale film acts as a mirror that reflects how audience members see themselves and their potential. While Fairy Tales and allusions to them pervade our daily lives and popular culture, film is a particularly engaging medium for these stories. As preeminent fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes says in his foreword to Fairy Tale Films. "This artistic re-creations of fairy tale plots and characters in film-the parodies, the aesthetic experimentation, and the mixing of genres to engender new insights into art and life-are significant because they mirror possibilities of estranging ourselves from designated roles and the conventional patterns of the classical tales."||Here, scholars from film, folklore, and cultural studies move discussion beyond well-known Disney movies to the many other filmic adaptations of fairy tales and to the widespread use of fairy tale tropes, themes, and motifs in cinema.
