Kafka, Gothic and Fairytale

Kafka, Gothic and Fairytale is an original comparative study of the novels and some of the related shorter punishment fantasies in terms of their relationship to the Gothic and fairytale conventions. It is an absorbing subject and one which, while keeping to the basic facts of his life, mind-set and literary method, shows Kafka's work in a genuinely new light. The contradiction between his persona with its love of fairytale and his shadow with its affinity with Gothic is reflected in his work, which is both Gothic and other than Gothic, both fairytale-like and the every denial of fairytale. Important subtexts of the book are the close connexion between Gothic and fairytale and between both of these and the dream. German text is quoted in translation unless the emphasis is on the meaning of individual words or phrases, in which case the words in question are quoted and their English meanings discussed. This means that readers without German can, for the first time, begin to understand the underlying ambiguity of Kafka's major fictions. The book is addressed to all who are interested in the meaning of his work and its place in literary history, but also to the many readers in the English and German-speaking worlds who share the author's enthusiasm for Gothic and fairytale.

The Fairytale as Art Form and Portrait of Man

In this major work by the distinguished Swiss folklorist Max LA1/4thi, the traditional fairytale is examined from two related points of view, that of aesthetics and that of anthropology. LA1/4thi shows that fairytales are more than just a pleasing form; they present a particular way of looking at the world and at human existence. Thus, they must be evaluated in terms of what they say about man and the human condition. This exemplary study will be read with enjoyment and profit not only by the literary scholar and folklore professional but by any reader who has ever delighted in fairytales.

Fairytale in the Ancient World

In this, the first modern study of the ancient fairytale, Graham Anderson asks whether the familiar children's fairytale of today existed in the ancient world. He examines texts from the classical period and finds many stories which resemble those we know today, including: * a Jewish Egyptian Cinderella * a Snow White whose enemy is the goddess Artemis * a Pied Piper at Troy. He puts forward many previously unsuspected candidates as classical variants of the modern fairytale and argues that the degree of violence and cruelty in the ancient tales means they must have been meant for adults.

There ae those who would have us believe that all we have to do is utter a prayer, sit back - and wait for God to pour out the blessing upon us. Many times folks would have us belive that our prayer must be accompanied by a check to them in order for the blessings to flow. The Bible does not teach any such thing. The blessings of Christianity are numerous. God however is not Santa Claus; we have no guarantees of wealth, health, a good job or any other worldly item. Satan loves to use false hope (from untrue beliefs) as a tool to damage our belief in God. This book is a realistic look at what the Bible actually says about everyday life. It is a handbook of Christian life - based and backed 100% with scripture.

Many a year has past since the day of my birth suffice to say that I am as old as my heart and as young as the winter snow. Odd that I should mention the winter for it was the season that I entered this world and it is my favourite. I love the magic of the season and the good will of the human spirit. It has always been this way with me and I shall never differ. My life differs none other that yours excepting perhaps that I have witnessed many a phenomenon. For example, spirits of the dead have visited and spoken with me. I have stood in my garden at night and watched unidentified flying objects cross the sky and disappear in the blinking of an eye. Moreover, yes. I have even seen a fairy. I live deep in the countryside and often feel the magic of the fairy folk around me. Not to long ago, I found myself driving down the long narrow road that eventually leads to my home. I was half a mile from my property and travelling at approximately 25 miles per hour. I have to pass a small coppice at the side of the road that boasts a mound in its centre. Perhaps it was from out of this mound that a little man appeared, I cannot say. However, of a sudden, a little man with beautiful transparent wings attached to his back, flew across my window screen. I must admit that these sightings are so very rare and that to witness such a sight is magnificent indeed. It has never accorded me to put my experiences to paper. However, after my last encounter with some very odd creatures, I have decided to give record of a few. My reason for this is that after you have read these few examples, perhaps you would care to read some of the following tales that I have accumulated over a period of many years....
