What I did NOT enjoy, and what so clearly dated this book, was the the application of Freudian theory to almost every detail of the various fairy tales dissected.

The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales

From one of the world’s leading child psychologists comes a new collection of wide-ranging essays in which he reflects on the people, events, and cultural influences that have shaped him and his work.

Bettelheim missed the Welsh tale of Sir Gawain and the Loathely Lady, in which it is the bride who is loathesome and monstrous. Unfortunately, as he gets into the nitty gritty of looking at the stories themselves, as is so often the case with overtly Freudian bduno, it’s frustrating how often the call for applicability morphs into a discussion of the sexual undercurrents of the story.

But this is also a story of sibling rivalry; the ugly stepsisters that have ultimate power over Cinderella and who she must degrade herself before. Fairy tales have been an integral part of childhood for hundreds of years.

Fairy tales do not gi I can’t believe I’m going to start this review with a Neil Gaiman quote, which is both incredibly pretentious and apt to make you think I think far better of Gaiman than I actually do, but here goes: Led Zeppelin by Led ZeppelinHardcover 3.

In this book, the preeminent child psychologist of our time gives us the results of his lifelong effort to determine what is most crucial in successful child-rearing. It’s like I was hypnotized, like he did a Jedi mind trick, “these are all the penises you’re looking for. View all 5 comments. And therefore, and for me personally, Bruno Bettelheim is absolutely and no longer in any manner an individual I can even remotely academically respect especially since it has also been revealed that Bettelheim was often both physically and verbally abusive to the students he was teaching at his Orthogenic Schooland The Uses of Enchantment will and can from now on only ever be considered a one star book for me, and one to only consider as at best rather majorly problematic and as an example of how NOT to write an academic tome of literary or of any type of analysis.

He makes a compelling case for how fairy tales help children grow emotionally, and how violence in fairy tales meets bdttelheim psychological needs and should not necessarily be sanitized for the young reader. In any case, there is a reason was as influential as it was, and remains essential today.

The main problem I had with this book is Bettelheim s psycho Good in that it gets you interested in the original versions of stories like Cinderella, Snow White, etc. Cuenos, this does not unfortunately appear to have been the case with Bruno Bettelheim, as in his The Uses of Enchantment he almost verbatim uses entire passages from especially Julius E.
