Tales Every Child Should Know
the folktales of the
past are the stories to entertain the peasants in a way that was very
easy for them to relate to. Lets not exaggerate the reality of such
stories then, for as we watch the horror stories of today paraded
unrealistically in front of us we must remember that stories are not
real, they merely resemble reality, and the potential experiences,
fears, and dreams and our lives.
|The Fairy Tale Story:
Fairy Tales do not
normally come from
high origins, rather the fairytale are the
peasant stories they are the folklore of daily life, passed on for
generations, and from village to village. This is what makes folktales
so interesting for these old wives tales as they where once called have
changed and passed hand so many times that they have in essince become
a mean of humanity, a conglomerate of the emotions, thoughts and
experiences. As peasant tales the fairytale is a snapshot of the way
normal people lived at the various times of our life, making them an
often stark and harsh stories. Stories of child abandonment, lust,
fear, cannibalism, and hatred. However these stories are also tales of
success and love, they are stories of hope.
