D egh claimed that the American school of performance had in praxis still paid too much attention to the text, despite the theoretical emphasis on the folklore event as performance. The second book deals with a friendship between four different animals; the third with a war between the crows and the owls. Imagine the outrage had these critics discovered "Sun, Moon, and Talia," a version of "Sleeping Beauty" in Giambattista Basile's Pentamerone, a Neapolitan collection of tales published in 1634.

They put every baby into the canoe, with food and water. Here, indeed, was a nice place where they could all have a good romp together.

Oxford: Clarendon Press; New York: Oxford University Press, 1985.

Saintliness is chiefly evidenced by the emulation of Christ’s example: rejection of family, abandonment of possessions, mortification of the body, fasting and constant prayer, and often violent death at the hands of persecutors. As it grew and hardened, he sent the animals onto it. It's an excellent story to read alongside the original, to encourage children to see both sides of the picture - and perhaps then to encourage children to rewrite another fairy tale from a different person's perspective.

After six or seven days, however, out of the bag hatched one hundred eggs and out of each egg was a boy; only then were they brought home to be raised. This film drew on fairy beliefs about the abduction of small children and featured puppet versions of goblins and other fairy creatures. The live-action format is certainly more successful than the low-budget animation of Ralph Bakshi’s earlier adaptation (1978). Encountering mystical trolls, a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Humor, satire, irony, wordplay, shades, and undertones are important features, as are the narrator’s poised, idiomatic sentences viewing a tiny section of the world through a magnifying glass, as in “Vanddraaben” (“A Drop of Water,” 1847), or turning the world upside down in one sentence, as in Andersen’s carnivalesque puns. This is a memorable collection of historical legends and folktales from Japan. The symbolic interpretation of fairy tales as well as their relation to the unconscious has become a challenging field of speculations for a number of Freudian and Jungian analysts (e.g Bettelheim, 1976; Dundes, 1989; Kaes et al, 1989; Kast, 1995; La Genardiere, 1996; Von Franz, 1982).
