It wasn't so long ago that the fairy tale was comfortably settled as an established and respectable part of children's literature. Since the fairy tale has always been a mirror of its times, however, we should not be surprised that in the latter part of the twentieth century it turned dark and ambiguous; its categorical distinction between good and evil was increasingly at odds with the times. Yet whatever changes the fairy tale may have undergone, its cultural popularity has never been greater.

Fairy Tales and Popular Culture sets out to show how the tale has been adapted to meet the needs of the contemporary world; how writers, film-makers, artists and other communicators have found in its universality an ideal vehicle for speaking to the here-and-now; and how social media has created a participatory culture that has re-invented the folktale. A selection of recent retellings show how the tale is being recalibrated for the contemporary world, first through the word and then through the image.

In addition to the introductions that precede each section, the anthology provides a selection of critical pieces that offer lively insight into various aspects of the fairy tale as popular culture.
