Kate Bernheimer
“After being conditioned as a child to the lovely never-never land of magic, of fairy queens and virginal maidens, of little princes and their rosebushes, of poignant bears and Eeyore-ish donkeys, of life personalized, as the pagans loved it, of the magic wand, and the faultless illustrations—the beautiful dark-haired child (who was you) winging through the midnight sky on a star-path in her mother’s box of reels—of Griselda in her feather-cloak, walking barefoot with the Cuckoo in the lantern-lit world of nodding mandarins, of Delight in her flower garden with the slim-limbed flower sprites … all this I knew, and felt, and believed. All this was my life when I was young. To go from this to the world of “grown-up” reality … To feel the sexorgans develop and call loud to the flesh; to become aware of school, exams (the very words as unlovely as the sound of chalk shrilling on the blackboard), bread and butter, marriage, sex, compatibility, war, economics, death, and self. What a pathetic blighting of the beauty and reality of childhood. Not to be sentimental, as I sound, but why the hell are we conditioned into the smooth strawberry-and-cream Mother-Goose-world, Alice-in-Wonderland fable, only to be broken on the wheel as we grow older and become aware of ourselves as individuals with a dull responsibility in life? To learn snide and smutty meanings of words you once loved, like “fairy.” —From The Journals of Sylvia Plath”

Kate Bernheimer
“This volume offers a specific moment of self-reflection for women—a gaze into the mirror through the lens of the fairy tale. It is my hope that this collection of essays will gain as much value to readers of fairy tales—those who read them to their children or to themselves, those who read them as scholars or students—as those favorite fairy tale volumes on their shelves, those books with faded ink and illustrations. Perhaps you, as I do, have on your shelves a cherished fairy tale book, one with a blue fabric cover and broken, beaten-up spine. Perhaps this book will gain a place beside it.”
