Once Upon a Time: The Developmental Wisdom of Fairy Tales
Fairy tales fascinate us. Despite vast changes in our culture they are the stories that are consistently and vibrantly renewed in many art forms. In recent years there has been an explosion of “retelling” of classic fairy tales in film, poetry and literature. In these three weeks, we’ll look at classical texts of several of the original Grimm’s fairy tales, and discuss the vivid and compelling ways that they illustrate psychoanalytic theories of development. We'll also read, watch, and discuss a few modern interpretations of these stories while we observe the ways that cultural shifts have affected changing ideas of development in childhood.
