Book Summary: Oscar Wilde's two collections of children's literature, The Happy Prince and Other Stories (1888) and A House of Pomegranates (1891), have often been marginalised in critical accounts as their apparently conservative didacticism appears at odds with the characterisation of Wilde as an amoral aesthete. In this, the first full-length study of Wilde's fairy tales for children, Jarlath Killeen argues that Wilde's stories are neither uniformly conservative nor subversive, but a blend of both. Killeen contends that while they should be read in relation to a literary tradition of fairy tales that emerged in nineteenth century Europe; Irish issues heavily influenced the work. These issues were powerfully shaped by the 'folk Catholicism' Wilde encountered in the west of Ireland. By resituating the fairy tales in a complex nexus of theological, political, social, and national concerns, Killeen restores the tales to their proper place in the Wilde canon.

Book Summary: Soils and national characters differ, but fairy tales are often the same in plot and incidents, if not in style. Most of the 27 illustrated tales in this volume of Indian fairy tales are known in the West in some form or other; how can we account for their simultaneous existence in both Europe and Asia? In this volume we find stories about Punchkin, the evil magician, and the quaint myth: "How Sun, Moon, and Wind went out to Dinner," the magic fiddle, the broken pot, the tiger, the Brahman, the Jackal, and more. In short, Jacobs has made this book a representative collection of all the fairy tales of India. Some have declared that India is the home of the fairy tale, and that all European fairy tales have been brought from thence by crusaders, Mongol missionaries, Gypsies, Jews, traders, and many other travellers. After all, India is on one branch of the fabled Silk and Spice Routes, over which Europeans and Asians have been travelling for several millennia. We should be prepared, within certain limits, to hold a brief for India. The common fairy stories of the children of Europe, which form a greater part of their stories as a whole, are derived from Indian tales. In particular, the majority of the Drolls, or comic tales and jingles, can be traced without much difficulty back to the Indian peninsula. To assemble this volume, Jacobs has selected the best from the Jatakas, the Bidpai, the Tales of the Sun, the Baluchi folk-tales, and the folk-tales of Kashmir. It is only a further proof that fairy tales are something more than Celtic or Hindoo-they are human. So curl up with a sliver of the Indian sub-continent and lose yourself in a culture and lifestyle of the ancient, Eastern past.

Book Summary: Having lived in this world, we’ve been fed devious lies about the true definitions of love and romance. We have been tangled in a cycle of misconceptions and heartbreak—imprisoning our feminine souls. Enough hearts have been broken, and a revival is on its way. The time has come to overwhelm the lies and reveal to this world the true definition of love: Jesus’ love. God has written the most romantic love story, and since the beginning of time, we have been living in the center of it. It is time to take up the role we have been given as daughters of the light—a light of joy, hope, romance, and freedom. Dare to be fulfilled. Dare to be romanced. Dare to be swept up in a love you’ve never felt before. It’s a love that’s putting fairy tales to shame.

History of the Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe

Book Summary: The third volume in the History of the Literary Cultures of East-Central Europe focuses on the making and remaking of those institutional structures that engender and regulate the creation, distribution, and reception of literature. The focus here is not so much on shared institutions but rather on such region-wide analogous institutional processes as the national awakening, the modernist opening, and the communist regimentation, the canonization of texts, and censorship of literature. These processes, which took place in all of the region’s cultures, were often asynchronous and subjected to different local conditions. The volume’s premise is that the national awakening and institutionalization of literature were symbiotically interrelated in East-Central Europe. Each national awakening involves a language renewal, an introduction of the vernacular and its literature in schools and universities, the creation of an infrastructure for the publication of books and journals, clashes with censorship, the founding of national academies, libraries, and theaters, a (re)construction of national folklore, and the writing of histories of the vernacular literature. The four parts of this volume are titled: (1) Publishing and Censorship, (2) Theater as a Literary Institution, (3) Forging Primal Pasts: The Uses of Folk Poetry, and (4) Literary Histories: Itineraries of National Self-images.

Book Summary: From wicked queens, beautiful princesses, elves, monsters, and goblins to giants, glass slippers, poisoned apples, magic keys, and mirrors, the characters and images of fairy tales have cast a spell over readers and audiences, both adults and children, for centuries. These fantastic stories have travelled across cultural borders, and been passed on from generation to generation, ever-changing, renewed with each re-telling. Few forms of literature have greater power to enchant us and rekindle our imagination than a fairy tale. But what is a fairy tale? Where do they come from and what do they mean? What do they try and communicate to us about morality, sexuality, and society? The range of fairy tales stretches across great distances and time; their history is entangled with folklore and myth, and their inspiration draws on ideas about nature and the supernatural, imagination and fantasy, psychoanalysis, and feminism. Marina Warner has loved fairy tales over a long writing life, and she explores here a multitude of tales through the ages, their different manifestations on the page, the stage, and the screen. From the phenomenal rise of Victorian and Edwardian literature to contemporary children's stories, Warner unfolds a glittering array of examples, from classics such as Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and The Sleeping Beauty, the Grimm Brothers' Hansel and Gretel, and Hans Andersen's The Little Mermaid, to modern-day realizations including Walt Disney's Snow White and gothic interpretations such as Pan's Labyrinth. In ten succinct chapters, Marina Warner digs into a rich hoard of fairy tales in their brilliant and fantastical variations, in order to define a genre and evaluate a literary form that keeps shifting through time and history. Her book makes a persuasive case for fairy tale as a crucial repository of human understanding and culture.

Book Summary: Believe In Your Own Fairytale narrates a young woman’s quest to achieve dreams all thought impossible. While being raised in a poor, black household on a small island does not make one the perfect candidate for a happily-ever-after, Fletcher shows that fairytales are real for those who find the magic in themselves. It is a journey of self-discovery, relationship with God and overcoming hardships including grief, disappointment, depression, poverty, anxiety and overcoming many psychological barriers to manifest true purpose. If you’ve ever doubted that your dreams are too big or maybe never believed in fairytales at all, then this is the book for you. It is designed for all the wanderers, dreamers and every person who has felt like their goals were so big it scared them and everyone else around them. It is for those who lack support from others and struggle daily to achieve their lifelong goals. Yuh’ see when you’re born in 1990 and yuh’ grow up as an only child to a poor, black, single-parent mother in the Caribbean, wanting to become a New York Times best-selling author and broadcast journalist living in the big apple seems like a real FAIRYTALE. My childhood dream of becoming the “Caribbean Carrie Bradshaw” was often mocked and turned away by locals who told me, “give up Kay-Marie dem’ ting’ does only happen in books and movies”. Determined to prove everyone wrong and do so by age 25, I set out on the pursuit of happiness as a young, naïve but strong-minded island-girl. However, my journey to achieve these goals was often disrupted by many hardships and this book details how I dealt with them. These include grief, disappointment, depression, and poverty, anxiety, crossing geographical borders and overcoming many psychological barriers. The unexpected death of my grandmother and uncle, which made me struggle to complete university, was just one of many. This caused me great turmoil, since Education had to be my ticket into a better life. After being rejected to do my post-grad studies in the U.S., I was forced to take an ordinary desk job to earn a living. Meanwhile, I hoped that finding true love would be a worthy compromise. Sadly, I looked for it in all the wrong guys. Luckily, I landed my dream job as a journalist at the largest local news station back home. Soon after taking it however, my old dream resurfaced and I was finally given the chance to migrate to the United States. By then, I had to choose between giving up the life I’d always imagined overseas and accepting what seemed to be my new fate in Trinidad. But, what happened next completely overturned my life. After surviving a horrific car accident on my 25th birthday, I woke up to an epiphany that my fairytale was much more than just becoming a big city girl. Taking a leap of faith to go after my dreams, developing a relationship with God, and discovering my true purpose in life became my real happily ever after. This book also gives an entirely new outlook to the traditional concept of what we know a ‘fairytale’ to be. Unlike others, each chapter unravels a whole new definition of the term ‘fairytale’ and intends to convince the minds of those who never believed in fairytales at all. When you read this book you will discover that your fairytales are your dreams, your purpose, your truth, your vision, your deepest thoughts, your inner magic, your baby, your goals, your prophetic call, your diamond, your destiny, and your recipe for success, just to name a few.

Book Summary: W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement. Du Bois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history. John Brown is W. E. B. Du Bois's groundbreaking political biography that paved the way for his transition from academia to a lifelong career in social activism. This biography is unlike Du Bois's earlier work; it is intended as a work of consciousness-raising on the politics of race. Less important are the historical events of John Brown's life than the political revelations found within the pages of this biography. At the time that he wrote it in 1909, Du Bois had begun his transformation into the most influential civil rights leader of his time. With a series introduction by editor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and an introduction by Paul Finkelman, this edition is essential for anyone interested in African American history.

Book Summary: Sheds new light on the identity of the alchemist Fulcanelli • Provides new understanding of the relationships between the most important figures of the esoteric milieu of Paris in the first half of the 20th century • Includes a wealth of rarely seen documents, photos, and letters Fulcanelli, operative alchemist and author of The Mystery of the Cathedrals and The Dwellings of the Philosophers--two of the most important esoteric works of the twentieth century--remains himself a mystery. The true identity of the man who allegedly succeeded in creating the philosopher’s stone has never been discovered, despite ardent searches by many--even the OSS (the wartime U.S. intelligence agency, later to become the CIA) claimed to have looked for him following the end of World War II. Geneviève Dubois looks at the esoteric milieu of Paris at the turn of the century, a time that witnessed a great revival of the alchemical tradition, and investigates some of its salient personalities. Could one of these have been this enigmatic man, reported to have last appeared in Seville, Spain, in 1952 when he would have been 113 years of age? The trail followed by the author encounters such figures as Papus, René Guénon, Schwaller de Lubicz, Pierre Dujols, Eugene Canseliet, and Jean-Julien Champagne. Working from rare documents, letters, and photos, Dubois suggests that one of these men could have been hiding his activity behind the pseudonym of Fulcanelli or that Fulcanelli may even have been a composite fabricated by several of these individuals working together. Beyond its attempt to reveal the actual identity of Fulcanelli, Fulcanelli and the Alchemical Revival also presents an explanation of the alchemical doctrine and reveals the unsuspected relationships among the important twentieth-century truth seekers it highlights.
