Folk & Fairy Tales

Magick and Occult Books A fairy tale is a fictional story that may feature folkloric characters such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, giants, and talking animals, and usually enchantments. Fairy tales commonly attract young children since they easily understand the archetypal characters in the story. In cultures where demons and witches are perceived as real, fairy tales may merge into legendary narratives, where the context is perceived by teller and hearers as having historical actuality. However, unlike legends and epics they usually do not contain more than superficial references to religion and actual places, persons, and events; they take place "once upon a time" rather than in actual times. Fairy tales are found in oral folktales and in literary form. The history of the fairy tale is particularly difficult to trace, because only the literary forms (rather than the oral folk tale) can survive. Literary fairy tales are found over the centuries all over the world, and when they collected them, folklorists found fairy tales in every culture.

The older fairy tales were intended for an audience of adults as well as children, but they were associated with children from very early on; the Brothers Grimm titled their collection Children's and Household Tales, and the link with children has only grown stronger with time. Folklorists have interpreted the tales' significance, but no school has been definitively established for the meaning of the tales. Many variants, especially those intended for children, have had morals attached. Charles Perrault usually concluded his versions with one, although not always completely moral. Many have also been subjected to Freudian, Jungian, and other psychological analysis.
