Updated: Friday, May 20, 2016

What does 'realism' mean in the early-modern tradition of fairy tales? One of the main traits of this genre has always been its alleged contrast between fantasy and reality. In their modern rewritings, classic tales are usually injected a dose of 'realism,' or at least this is what contemporary critics emphasize. But how does realism work in the initial stages of this tradition and what is its meaning? This sessions is open to all Western literary canons.
