Fairy Tales: Meanings, Messages, and Morals

David Musgrave, The University of Newcastle Australia

Discover the fascinating circumstances and meanings behind fairy tales

On this course, you will look deeper into the enchanting and surprisingly dark themes of several well-known European fairy tales.

What were the authors thinking? What were the cultural and personal concerns that have shaped these stories? What are the readers being asked to believe?

By considering the historical context of fairy tales and examining the characters, styles, and plots, you will discover that the intended morals of the original stories may not be exactly what you first thought.

Recommended for learners age 15+

This course is for anyone interested in fairy tales and literary analysis, including reading enthusiasts, storytellers, and creative writers.
