W- Folk and Fairy Tales

We think of fairy tales - not quite the same as folktales, but they overlap – as the stuff of the nursery, but they were never meant for children, and some are much too dark. Folk and fairy tales are often ancient, began before the written word became universal, and lie close to the roots of narrative. They have been changed by writing, and continue to be re-told and re-interpreted. We will probably use one book of tales each term, usually obtainable inexpensively second-hand.
