Household Tales: A Read Through
Something Completely Different
his week has seen the deadlines swarm, in a very good way. Good in the way bees swarm round a marauding bear. So ‘unsettling wonder’ has been pushed back, possibly to appear in modified on anti-wednesday.
But do not despair! If you, like me, look forward with mingled eagerness and dread to see what strange discursion into the world for fairy tales will appear on this site of a Monday, despair not! I have an article for your perusal.
Paradoxes regular katew is the editor of Enchanted Conversation, and she very kindly invited me to guest blog for the journal. So that’s where you find me today. I’ve called the guest article ‘Snow White and the Philosopher’s Stone,’ though I can’t take credit for the title. It may or may not be part of something which I’ll tell you about eventually.
Go off and read it. Then please come back and answer me two questions:
1) Does it make critical sense? and
2) would you be interested in reading more about fairy tales and alchemy?
Challenges, cross-examinations, and interrogations all very welcome. Enjoy.
