Fairy tales with their archetypal images live on through all the changes and upheavals of society, and they continue to be popular with children. Rudolf Meyer rediscovers the lost meaning of these stories and shows how they can have a profound, positive influence on the developing mind of the child. Telling fairy tales to children today gives spiritual nourishment that later in life can be a source of ideals and imaginative creative thinking. This book is an important resource for parents and teachers.

Book Description FLORIS BOOKS, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Fairy tales, though they were originally folk tales told to adults, have been a key part of childhood for centuries and remain popular today. Their patterns and morality have a profound influence on the developing mind of children; they shape the way children understand ideas of good and evil, poverty and riches, beauty and ugliness. They stimulate the imagination and provide much-needed heroes and heroines. The deeper meaning of these tales, however, has often been lost. Rudolf Meyer explores key themes and images, such as the prince, animals, the tailor or enchantment, in well-known fairy tales. He shows how characters such as Snow White and Cinderella represent particular aspects of our own nature and how there is a deep wisdom to be found in their stories. This book will be fascinating and insightful reading for parents and teachers. Seller Inventory # ABS9780863152085
