Synopsis:

Jack Zipes has put together the first comprehensive anthology of feminist fairy tales and essays to appear since the women's movement gained momentum in the 1960's. He has selected works by such gifted writers as Angela Carter, Margaret Atwood, Tanith Lee, Jay Williams, Jane Yolen, Anne Sexton, Olga Broumas and Joanna Russ-all of whom, whether they consider themselves feminists or not, have written innovative stories which seek to break the classical tradition of fairy tales. The accompanying critical essays, by Marcia Lieberman, Sandra Gilbert, Susan Gubar and Karen Rowe, discuss how fairy tales play an important role in early socialization, influencing the manner in which children perceive the world and their place in it even before they begin to read.

Angela Kopshy, July 21, 2014 (view all comments by Angela Kopshy)
I couldn't put this book down. It's a collection of authors and there are so many different flavors and perspectives. Definitely a fun and thought-provoking read. I was particularly in love with Chapter 5 - a four line spin on Cinderella. Great book for not only the strong, brilliant women out there, but for men, boys, girls and anything in between.
