Fairy Tale Sleeping Beauty
Choose one fairy tale (not one we have read together), and find 3-4 versions of it. Then write a paper with three parts: first, you will introduce the time and place in which each version was produced. Then you will write about changes that have occurred across time and culture. Finally, you will spend time analyzing the cultural implications of the variations. You don’t need sources other than the variants of the fairy tales, but if they want to use them, that is fine. Make sure, though, that you cite any source you use. Also, be careful not to oversimplify or make hasty generalizations about the cultural significance of fairy tale images.
