Those familiar with classic fairy tales are well aware of the kinds of roles witches have played. In fact, fairy tale critic Maria Tatar in The Hard Facts of the Grimms Fairy Tales explains that the Grimms’ tales feature 3 distinct types of ogres: “beasts and monsters”, “social deviants”, and “women”, with women (perhaps unsurprisingly) making up the largest category. In this group are witches and wise women, mothers’-in-law, and stepmothers, all of whom walk a villainous path and are cast as “evil” characters. However, contemporary fairy tale writers have deconstructed this pattern. This class will offer a sampling of modern-day witches and wise women in fairy tales by introducing participants to stories that feature witches in more complex, nuanced roles. Participants will be given links/pdfs to a few tales prior to class so they have time to read them before attending. The class will cover a brief history of the classic fairy tale witch and then move to a discussion of the changing contemporary views, with time available for discussion of the works provided.
