Yesterday a customer at work came up to the till and showed me an essay title she has been given at university and asked if we knew any books that could help on this. The essay asked (using two fairytales for example) to analyse two critics’ opinions of fairytales. Of course it was pure fate that she happened to be served by me as I did my dissertation on fairytales- the Grimm’s in particular and loved every second of it.
I’m now on a mission to find some critics for her so that we can order the books for her. I just love re-visiting my dissertation, so interesting to go back and read it in hindsight, without the stress of deadlines looming.
I hope this lady enjoys writing about fairytales as much as I did.
