A Conversation for Fairy Tales

Bruno Bettelheim

Post 1


Hello troops

The noted chappie Bruno Bettelheim wrote a very interesting child-developmental analysis of fairytales called The Uses of Enchantment. I can recommend this to anyone who is interested in the subject. Also good is the Virago Book of Fairytales edited by Angela Carter (I think). Even though Carter is a talentless writer of pulp fictions this is still a good read. And please also read The Holy Sinner by Thomas Mann because it's good.
