Fairy tales, myths, legends, and folk tales, are often the inspiration for contemporary works of literature, film, and art. They continue to fascinate and charm audiences of all ages. Archetypes and traditional story telling can become a vehicle to explore and address a myriad of issues specific to life of today. The narrative structure of these writings provide the framework to explore issues like personal history, identity, gender politics, human nature, and many other topics.
