Cinderella. A Casebook

Review by:
Kerry Kelly Novick

Edited by Alan Dundes. Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 1988. 316 pp.

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD. A CASEBOOK. Edited by Alan Dundes. Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 1989. 251 pp.

These volumes bring together a number of interpretations of two widely known folktales. The essays are drawn from different fields over the period of the last hundred years; in some cases, the works were translated for inclusion in these volumes and would otherwise be difficult of access. The editor's goals are to provide readers with the opportunity to see for themselves various modes of analysis and to encourage "eclectic and improved scholarship in folkloristics." It is not entirely clear to whom Dundes is directing these books, but one can imagine several dimensions on which psychoanalysts might find such collections interesting: as examples of applied psychoanalysis, in relation to philosophical and cultural examination of imaginative material, in relation to child development, and in the correlations between folktales of a particular culture and individual histories.
