Folklore/Fairy Tales Index

Inspired by Charlotte’s Library, I thought I’d make an index of my reviews and other posts related to folklore and fairy tales.  This page is a work in progress — please feel free to comment with corrections or suggestions (just don’t be a troll.  If you’ve read any number of fairy tales, you’ll know they don’t tend to do well.  Also, you’ll be deleted).

The links are organized by SUBJECT, REGION, and SPECIFIC TALE (i.e. Beauty and the Beast stories, Frog Prince stories, etc).

I also highly recommend the SurLaLune Fairy Tales site — 49 annotated tales + discussion of each story’s development, similar tales from around the world, contemporary re-tellings, influences on/by pop culture, etc.
