Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s also true that I’m just not that interested in children’s literature, which, on the surface at least, seems to be Bettelheim’s primary interest in fairy tales. All the challenges, risks, adventures, impossible tasks in order to inherit the kingdom—they eat it up. The short version of what this book is about is that fairy tales are a very particular genre. I beg to differ: They do not make us evil or wicked or loathsome.


The Uses of Enchantment: Some of these issues are constraints of the times–this book was published almost forty years ago now. Freud and Man’s Soul: I was highly disappointed at this cheapening of such beautiful stories that, I believe, have far greater meaning than what he presented.

Orientalism, Colonization, and Children’s Literature,” but holy shit, I just wanted to WALLOP him with that until he agreed to rewrite the book with some consideration to the idea that children aren’t a fucking monolith. Bettelheim is clearly knowledgeable and has studied fairy tales for quite some time.

Think Freudian fairy tales. Bettelheim managed to twist many of the fairy tales I love dearly into stories of oedipal attachments, sexual fantasies, penis envy, and the like, all without any true knowledge of fairy tale history OR psychological theory. Mar 30, Nicole rated it really liked it.

I can’t believe I’m going to start this review with a Neil Gaiman quote, which is both incredibly pretentious and apt to make you think I think far better of Gaiman than I actually do, but here goes: The famous child psychologist, Bruno Bettelheim, explains how fairy tales educate, support, and liberate the emotions of children.

Now, this is the bit I never realised before. If you like fairy tales and would like to know what the critical discussion around them is, I actually would recommend giving this a look, because you should know what the major io are.

Bettelheim compares various versions of familiar tales and discusses theme at length. I also disliked Bettelheim’s analysis of Charles Perrault and his tales in generalto say that they’re flippant and mocking is not really fair and it also shows oncantato lack of research, given that Perrault was a man, posing as a woman Mother Goose and writing in a genre dominated by womenwho he brunno as his colleagues.
