Stars are assigned as follows: I have a whole new sense of how fairy tales work and why they have survived through history after reading this book, and if you feel like discovering a whole new level into the complexity of these well-worn and told stories I recommend you to read this book.

Bsttelheim 07, Jacqueline rated it really liked it. Tootle leaves no room to play — it is a telling, not a showing. Thanks for telling us about the problem. This was the first book which assured me that my enduring interest in fairy tales was scholarly and not something to be scoffed at as juvenile. Anyone who needs to be convinced that the protagonist of a children’s story should always solve his or her own problems without adult help should read this book.

This is an amazing and amazingly flawed book. Good people are GOOD. Reviewed for The Bibliophibian.

I’m certainly not ceuntos that a sexual reading of fairy tales isn’t valid, useful, or even interesting.

Bruno Bettelheim was an Austrian-born American child psychologist and writer. While I did enjoy some of the historical information regarding the origin of various fairy tales, this is not a book that I enjoyed or would recommend.

He pooh-poohs as shallow the idea that people might be frustrated by how many damsels in distress are featured in the most popular fairy tales. Unfortunately, as he gets into the nitty gritty of looki Bettelheim’s Uses of Enchantment is one of those classic pieces of criticism that are both absolutely essential and hopelessly outdated.
