The Powerful Telling of Fairy Tales

Lecture no. 6 from the course: The Art of Storytelling: From Parents to Professionals

The Powerful Telling of Fairy Tales

Taught by Professor Hannah B. Harvey | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Use Little Red Riding Hood and other fairy tales to understand the psychology of storytelling and what fairy tales do for children in particular. Then, see why the themes of these tales can be just as appealing to adults.
