Cinderella across Cultures

The Cinderella story is retold continuously in literature, illustration, music, theatre, ballet, opera, film, and other media, and folklorists have recognized hundreds of distinct forms of Cinderella plots worldwide. The focus of this volume, however, is neither Cinderella as an item of folklore nor its alleged universal meaning. In Cinderella across Cultures, editors Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochère, Gillian Lathey, and Monika Wozniak analyze the Cinderella tale as a fascinating, multilayered, and ever-changing story constantly reinvented in different media and traditions. The collection highlights the tale’s reception and adaptation in cultural and national contexts across the globe, including those of Italy, France, Germany, Britain, the Netherlands, Poland, and Russia. Contributors shed new light on classic versions of Cinderella by examining the material contexts that shaped them (such as the development of glass artifacts and print techniques), or by analyzing their reception in popular culture (through cheap print and mass media). The first section, “Contextualizing Cinderella,” investigates the historical and cultural contexts of literary versions of the tale and their diachronic transformations. The second section, “Regendering Cinderella,” tackles innovative and daring literary rewritings of the tale in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, in particular modern feminist and queer takes on the classic plot. Finally, the third section, “Visualising Cinderella,” concerns symbolic transformations of the tale, especially the interaction between text and image and the renewal of the tale’s iconographic tradition. The volume offers an invaluable contribution to the study of this particular tale and also to fairy-tale studies overall. Readers interested in the visual arts, in translation studies, or in popular culture, as well as a wider audience wishing to discover the tale anew will delight in this collection.

Woke Cinderella

Glass slippers, a fairy godmother, a ball, a prince, an evil stepfamily, and a poor girl known for sitting amongst the ashes: incarnations of the "Cinderella" fairy tale have resonated throughout the ages. Hidden between the lines of this fairy tale exists a history of fantasy about agency, power, and empowerment. This book examines twenty-first-century “Cinderella” adaptations that envision the classic tale in the twenty-first century through the lens of wokenesss by shifting rhetorical implications and self-reflexively granting different possibilities for protagonists. The contributors argue that the "Cinderella" archetype expands past traditional takes on the passive princess. From Sex and the City to Game of Thrones, from cyborg "Cinderellas" to Inglorious Basterds, contributors explore gender-bending and feminist adaptations, explorations of race and the body, and post-human and post-truth rewritings. The collection posits that contemporary “Cinderella” adaptations create a substantive cultural product that both inform and reflect a contemporary social zeitgeist.

From Traditional Gender Roles to Their Reversals

Due to the different messages these two stories have for women, they are analyzed from the perspective of traditional fairy tale roles for women (Cinderella) and from the perspective of reversed traditional fairy tale roles (The Paper Bag ...

From Traditional Gender Roles to Their Reversals

This thesis examines femininity and masculinity in fairy tales through the roles occupied by female characters in fairy tales and uses Cinderella and The Paper Bag Princess as examples. In Charles Perrault's Cinderella the heroine is presented in the traditional patriarchal role as a passive, submissive, and obedient woman with excellent domestic skills. Because she is a passive character she waits to be rescued by the prince. The roles of rescuer and rescuee are reversed in Robert Munsch's picture book The Paper Bag Princess because the heroine Elizabeth sets off to rescue her fiancé, prince Ronald. Elizabeth exhibits a blend of masculine and feminine characteristics through the effects of cross-dressing and elements of androgyny. Elizabeth gains agency usually reserved for male fairy tale heroes by acquiring androgynous attire. Because she does not put on a masculine disguise (something female cross-dressers in children%s literature adopt and then discard to return to their prescribed feminine roles) she also does not return to the feminine role she occupied at the beginning of the story. Elizabeth blends masculine and feminine characteristics due to her androgynous attire and behavior and remains independent. Cinderella and The Paper Bag Princess hold powerful messages for their readers. Due to the different messages these two stories have for women, they are analyzed from the perspective of traditional fairy tale roles for women (Cinderella) and from the perspective of reversed traditional fairy tale roles (The Paper Bag Princess). This thesis also presents the distinctions between folktales and fairy tales and their subject matters. It also devotes attention to the development of the fairy tale genre, which has its roots in the 17th-century French salon movement started by the French aristocratic women. The thesis also examines the constructs of femininity and masculinity and how they are sustained with cross-dressing and blended with androgyny.

Retelling Cinderella

Cinderella’s transformation from a lowly, overlooked servant into a princess who attracts everyone’s gaze has become a powerful trope within many cultures. Inspired by the Cinderella archive of books and collectables at the University of Bedfordshire, the essays in this collection demonstrate how the story remains active in various different societies where social and family relationships are adapting to modern culture. The volume explores the social arenas of dating apps and prom nights, as well as contemporary issues about women’s roles in the home, and gender identity. Cinderella’s cultural translation is seen through the contributors’ international perspectives: from Irish folklore to the Colombian Cenicienta costeña (Cinderella of the coast) and Spanish literary history. Its transdisciplinarity ranges from fashion in Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm’s publications to a comparison of Cinderella and Galatea on film, and essays on British authors Nancy Spain, Anne Thackeray Ritchie and Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Fairytales   A World between the Imaginary

This book investigates Basile’s contribution to the establishment of fairytales as a literary genre; the focus is on his masterpiece Lo cunto de li Cunti. The volume examines Basile’s work’s debt to tradition and its influence on posterity, while also studying the author’s unique use of metaphors in the rich Neapolitan dialect. As this study reveals, metaphors in Lo cunto de li cunti are not used simply as a mean of embellishment; rather they are employed as a way to inform the reader of the rich folkloric tradition of Naples during the baroque times, as well as of Basile’s discontent with the socio-political situation of his times. The use of metaphors is so pervasive that one could argue that the book is itself a metaphor through which Basile conveys his ideals and his utopia of a liberated Naples and a more just society; as well as the importance of the Neapolitan dialect and its linguistic registers. Furthermore, the book also proposes a new interpretation of the female characters of the tales and it instigates a discussion on gender roles in both modern and past societies.

THREE PRINCESSES OF WHITELAND   A Norwegian Fairy Tale

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 248 In this 247th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the story of “The Three Princesses of Whiteland.” A fisherman lived close by a palace, and fished for the Norwegian King’s table. One day when he was out fishing he just caught nothing. Do what he would—however he tried with bait and angle—there was never a sprat on his hook. But when the day was far spent a head bobbed up out of the water, and said: “If I may have what your wife bears under her girdle, you shall catch fish enough.” So the man answered boldly, “Yes;” for he did not know that his wife was going to have a child. After that, as was like enough, he caught plenty of fish of all kinds. But when he got home at night and told his story, how he had got all that fish, his wife fell a-weeping and moaning, and was beside herself for the promise which her husband had made, for she said, “I bear a babe under my girdle.” Well, the story soon spread, and came up to the castle; and when the King heard the woman’s grief and its cause, he sent down to say he would take care of the child, and see if he couldn’t save it. So the months went on and on, and when her time came the fisher’s wife had a boy; so the king took it at once, and brought it up as his own son, until the lad grew up. Then he begged leave one day to go out fishing with his father; he had such a mind to go, he said. At first the King wouldn’t hear of it, but at last the lad had his way, and went. So he and his father were out the whole day, and all went right and well till they landed at night. Then the lad remembered he had left his handkerchief, and went to look for it; but as soon as ever he got into the boat, it began to move off with him at such speed that the water roared under the bow, and all the lad could do in rowing against it with the oars was no use; so he went and went the whole night, and at last he came to a white strand, far, far away. There he went ashore, and when he had walked about a bit, an old, old man met him, with a long white beard. “What’s the name of this land?” asked the lad. “Whiteland,” said the man, who went on to ask the lad whence he came, and what he was going to do. So the lad told him all. “Aye, aye!” said the man; “now when you have walked a little farther along the strand here, you’ll come to three Princesses, whom you will see standing in the earth up to their necks, with only their heads out. ……and here begins the young man’s adventures on his quest to return home. Who were the Princesses and why were they in the sand up to their necks? What other adventures did the young Prince have, but more importantly, did he ever get home?
