Hi, I was researching about modern fairy tale movies made during past 10 years and their effects on literature so I found your review.
These fairy tales are being retold with a feminist twist. The most recent example is 'Mirror Mirror', and the young snow white turns into a Robin Hood, fights with the wicked queen and is smart enough not to bite the apple.
And it is not all about fairy tales, even classic love stories is getting a feminist twist (Gnomeo and Juliet). I was wondering what is the effect on classic literature. Can we consider fairy tales as a genre in literature? Is it going to fade? Will our children or grand children remember the original ones or even be interested in reading them? Is it a good or bad thing?
I am curious to hear your opinion about this.
