(Herausg.): Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in Bed: Modernisms Fairy Tales, University of Toronto Pre, ISBN: 9780802090867
leichte Lagerspuren Kurzbeschreibung\nFrom children's books to Christmas pantomimes, and from scholarly anthologies to movies, the many and various adaptations of fairy tales in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries speak to the genre's widespread popularity. Narratives whose presence and appeal can be traced through every aspect of modern British and North American culture, fairy tales invite a range of interpretations and applications, as multiple versions of 'Cinderella,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' and 'Little Red Riding Hood' enable multiple and potentially subversive uses of their plots and motifs by writers and readers alike. By exploring representations of fairy tales in the works of James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Djuna Barnes, Ann Martin's Red Riding Hood and the Wolf in Bed asserts the significance of the stories as a system of reference for these and other modernists. Allusions to fairy tales in works such as Ulysses, Orlando, and Nightwood signify not only an intersection of popular culture and high modernism, but also an interaction between modern subjects and their social and economic contexts. Drawing on theoretical paradigms from gender and cultural studies, Martin develops a participatory model of modernist literature and culture. The tactical engagements with social normatives that are found in fairy tales and in the modernist texts echo the authors' own challenges to formal and discursive boundaries through intertextuality, just as the readers of the fairy tale allusions become actively engaged in making sense of modernism. \n\nSynopsis\nFrom children's books to Christmas pantomimes, and from scholarly anthologies to movies, the many and various adaptations of fairy tales in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries speak to the genre's widespread popularity.

[AULNOY, Marie Catherine le Jumel de Barneville, comtesse d']. Les contes des fees.- Nouveaux contes des fees. Par madame D***. Auteur des memoires et voyage d'Espagne. Amsterdam, for Estienne Roger, 1717-1719.
Very rare Amsterdam edition of the popular fairy tales by Madame D'Aulnoy or Aunoy, born about 1650 and died at Paris in 1705. The first volume contains 16 "Contes" in two parts, with a stock list of the publisher in between (3 pp.). The second volume contains the <I>Nouveaux Contes</I>, nine in all, preceeded by an introductory title-story. The frontispiece to the <I>Contes</I> is a variant of the frontispiece to Chevalier de Mailly's <I>Contes Galans,</I> published by the same publisher. The frontispiece to the <I>Nouveaux Contes</I> shows a female author in classical attire writing fairy tales.Aulnoy, Marie Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, comtesse d'Aulnoy is the most famous French writer of fairy tales after Perrault. She has had a significant influence on the development of the genre in France and other countries (especially Germany). After a turbulent marriage with Francois de la Motte, baron d'Aulnoy, who was more than 30 years her elder, ending in a plot to accuse M. d'Aulnoy of 'lese majeste', a capital offence, and a short imprisonment with her new born third daughter (the first two had died in infancy), she travelled after 1670 to Flanders, England, and Spain. However, by 1690, she had returned to Paris, had established numerous contacts at court, and began a prolific writing career, with the publication of <I>Histoire d'Hypolite, comte de Duglas</I> (<I>Story of Hypolitus, Count of Douglas</I>), which included the first published literary fairy tale in French (which later anthologies called 'L'Ile de la felicite' ('The Island of Happiness')). In 1691, d'Aulnoy published her lively travel narrative <I>Relation du voyage d'Espagne</I> (<I>Travels in Spain</I>). In the ensuing years she published with great success novels, short stories, devotional works, and collections of historical memoirs. But she is best known for the present two collections of fairy tales, originally published in 1697 and 1698: <I>Les Contes des fees</I>, with 15 tales, and <I>Contes nouveaux</I>, which contains nine more tales, including two frame narratives (<I>Dom Gabriel Ponce de Leon</I> and <I>Dom Fernand de Tolede</I>) and a frame story entitled <I>Le Gentilhomme bourgeois</I> (<I>The Bourgeois Gentleman</I>; not present in our copy). By the time of her death a few years later (1705), d'Aulnoy's name had become synonymous with an expression she was the first to use: 'conte de fees'.D'Aulnoy's fairy tales owe much to the novels of her day. Unlike Perrault (whose prose tales were published only a few months before the first instalment of <I>Les Contes des fees</I>), d'Aulnoy regularly incorporates motifs, characters, and devices that are typical of the pastoral and heroic romances popular in the first part of the century. Hence, her protagonists are always involved in a love story, and the narration examines their emotions at great length. Indeed, this 'sentimental realism' makes d'Aulnoy's fairy tales a significant (but generally unacknowledged) transitional moment in the evolution of the 17th- and 18th-century French novel. D'Aulnoy rewrote 15 different oral tale types, ranging from 'L'Oranger et l'abeille' ('The Orange tree and the Bee') to 'Le Mouton' ('The Ram'). She seems to have been particularly fascinated by the animal spouse cycles (the most famous examples of which are Apuleius' 'Cupid and Psyche' and Mme Leprince de Beaumont's 'Beauty and the Beast'), for she wrote four animal groom tales ('Gracieuse et Percinet', 'Le Mouton', 'L'Oiseau bleu' ('The Blue Bird'), 'Serpentin vert' ('The Green Serpent').Perhaps most significant are the multiple ways d'Aulnoy's <I>contes de fees</I> meld literary and folkloric traditions. Not unlike Perrault, she often employs humorous names, expressions, devices, and situations that create an ironic distance from popular oral narratives and their (reductive) association with children. This is the case of the versed morals she almost always places at the end of her tales: the <I>moralites</I> recall the formulaic endings of both the oral storyteller and the illustrious fabulist La Fontaine while often questioning the obvious 'point' of the story. D'Aulnoy is also famous for her profuse imagination, and she repeatedly incorporates rich descriptions that fuse supernatural beings or traits with historical and literary allusions from her day. The popularity that met d'Aulnoy's fairy tales immediately upon publication continued well into the 18th century, during which her works were often republished and many of her tales found their way into the <I>Bibliotheque bleue</I>. In the past 20 years, serious scholarly attention to d'Aulnoy has finally begun to gain momentum, and critics have increasingly recognized her important place in the history of French literature and the fairy tale.The present two volumes are two parts of an ambitious project realized by the Amsterdam publisher Estienne Roger, entitled 'Le cabinet des fees: contenant tous leurs ouvrages en huit volumes'.Volume 1 contains: the title, a dedication (pp. 3-4), and the fairy tales 'Gracieuse et Percinet' (pp. 5-48); La belle aux cheveux d'or' (pp. 49-74); L'oiseau bleu' (pp. 75-141); Le prince Lutin' (pp. 142-210); 'La princesse Printaniere' (pp. 211-81); 'Le rameau dor' (pp. 282-343); 'L'oranger et l'abeille' (pp. 344-97); 'La bonne petite souris' (pp. 398-423); (3 pp. with stock list of Estienne Roger); 'Le lalais de la vengeance' (pp. 1-28); 'Le prince des feuilles' (pp. 29-68); 'Le bonheur des Moineaux'' (pp. 68-70); 'L'heureuse peine' (pp. 71-105); 'Les avantures de Finette' (pp. 106-50); 'Sanr Paragon' (pp. 151-222; and 'La reine des fees' (pp. 223-71).
