Last year I posted a link to The Uses of Enchantment, but thought with this year's Once Upon a Time challenge, someone else might be interested in it.
Another posting from last year was my review of Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Women Writers Explore Their Favorite Fairy Tales. This book of essays by such writers as Ursula Le Guin, Julia Alvarez, Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates, Midori Snyder, and Terry Windling offer memories and discoveries involving the dramatic effect of fairy tales on the lives of these women writers. It was fascinating and informative.
And a link to a poem about Rapunzel by William Morris (1834-1896).
