Feminist Fairy Tales: Blurred Boundaries in Angela Carter’s Rewritings of Classical Fairy Tales
Linköping University, Department of Culture and Communication.

Abstract [en]

This essay examines Angela Carter’s feminist rewritings of classical fairy tales. By examining the original fairy tales and comparing them to what Angela Carter published I aim to highlight a feminism that is subtle and non-binary. In the analysis I draw on ideas presented by Hélène Cixous as well as Simone de Beauvoir.

Furthermore, a pedagogical reflection is included to show ways in which these stories could be incorporated in the upper- secondary school.
