GER 304 - Once Upon a Time: German Fairy Tales, Folklore, and Fantasy

Course Units: 1
(Winter; Nelson-Mukherjee) Exploration of the genre and tradition of the German Fairy Tale, its reception within various cultural frameworks, and its influence on later literature of the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries, with special focus on identifying aesthetic, sociological, psychological, and psychoanalytical implications and gender issues. The Grimm Brothers’ Kinder- und Hausmärchen (and their revisions in popular and literary culture) will provide a basis for discussing the fairy tale’s role in culture and its continued vitality within the different cultural frameworks of classical, romantic, and modern folklore and fantasy storytelling.
