    Every culture has its own fairy and folk tales This book was a collection of essays that Zipes printed in other publications The perspective that I got from the essays was that they were mostly about Disney and its effects on the world It also focused on the marketing of products related to the Disney machine Zipes related how a child could be very into one character or film and then want everything associated with it Marketing towards children has been around for decades, and many of us ha Every culture has its own fairy and folk tales This book was a collection of essays that Zipes printed in other publications The perspective that I got from the essays was that they were mostly about Disney and its effects on the world It also focused on the marketing of products related to the Disney machine Zipes related how a child could be very into one character or film and then want everything associated with it Marketing towards children has been around for...

    Parts of this are interesting I didn t know anything about the origins of Pinocchio, and I learned some interesting facts about Walt Disney and early animation But mostly this was very boring Also the last two chapters took a weird turn and wereabout the culture industry sports, university, capitali...

    The first half of this book is really interesting, particularly the chapters on Hansel and Gretel, Puss in Boots and Pinocchio The second half is overly polemical and much less engaging Would have given the book at least 3 stars if the final three chapters had been as interesting as the first three.

    Okay, I purposefully gave myself a few days to digest what I read because for the last chapter or so I was basically reading while sick to my stomach I wasn t ill, at least not medically the realization of the impact of the fairy tale narrative on our world sits somewhere between dismay and horror in my brain That s sounds dramatic, but Zipes is persuasive Consider any fairy tale that has been popularized Okay, Disneyfied I was at f...

    A lot of you may have grown up on fairy tales such as Puss in Boots and Hansel and Gretel If you re like me, they were a staple in growing up with a fair moral code Now that we re older and we ve been brainwashed by these stories, it s time to look at them in amature way.This is where Jack Zipes comes in.His novel Happily Ever After Fairy Tales, Children, and the Culture Industry analyses several classic fairy tales and how they develop over time It started off as an interesting piece A lot of you may have grown up on fairy tales such as Puss in Boots and Hansel and Gretel If you re like me, they were a staple in growing up with a fair moral code Now that we re older and we ve been brainwashed by these stories, it s time to look at them in amature way.This is where Jack Zipes comes in.His novel Happily Ever After Fairy Tales, Children, and the Culture Industry analyses several classic fairy tales and how they develop over time It started off as an interesting piece describing the ori...

    Thought provoking A bit extreme as we moved to the later chapters, especially the notion that capitalism is at the heart of all cultural industry woes, and some of the anecdotes from his personal life seemed to be out of place and whiny I don t know how it compares to other texts on similar subjects because this is the first one I ve read, but I found many parts of this book insightful I would really really love to see what Zipes s opinion on fandom fanfiction is, since it undermines his assu Thought provoking A bit extreme as we moved to the later chapters, especially the notion that capitalism is at the heart of all cultural industry...

    From what I gather, Zipes is a fairly prolific scholar writer in the field of fairy tale studies The first half of the book I found deeply engaging as he did a bit of comparative study of the evolution of fairy tales prior to the 20th century He concentrated specifically on the cultural values of specific historic periods that are reflected within each version, and how as these values change over time so do the stories And within this framework, he also investigated how fairy tales have been From what I gather, Zipes is a fairly prolific scholar writer in the field of fairy tale studies The first half of the book I found deeply engaging as he did a bit of comparative study of the evolution of fairy tales prior to the 20th century He concentrated specifically on the cultural values of specific historic periods that are reflected within each version, and how as these values change over time so do the stories And within this framework, he also investigated how fairy tales have been used to socialize children However, the latter part of the work began to read a bit too much like a manifesto against the consumerist monoculture which wasn t what I was looking for Analysis of how fairy tales rationalize the abandonment and abuse of children Fun Sweeping value judgements and generalizations about contemporary society and consumerist culture Not quite what I was expecting Granted, the subtitle does talk about the culture industry but I the last...
