Fairly Tales and Feminine Fictions

A three-part study of heroine tales (fairy tales centering on women) to illuminate their importance for the development of feminine fictions from the 18th through 20th centuries. Part I would argue for the impact of heroine tales on the socialization of women and on the early history of the English novel. Part II would analyze specific influences of fairytales on the fiction written by representative 18th and 19th century female novelists. Part III would examine the progressive disillusionment with fairy tale in the 20th century.
