Once Upon a Fairy Tale Vol 1, by Norbert GlasRudolf Steiner College Press
Insights for the adult to ponder in relating fairy tales to children.The worldwide popularity of Walt Disney's film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs compelled me to write about the real meaning of fairy tales. That film destroys for both children and adults the spiritual content of a beautiful tale. With a deep understanding for their content, the Brothers Grimm collected [European] fairy tales over a period of many years. Reading these original stories carefully, one discovers that each phrase, even each word, is deliberately chosen to stress the true background of the events told. ?Norbert GlasContents of Volume 1: Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs; Snow-White and Rose-Red; CinderellaNorbert Glas, MD, was a physician, biographer, and philosopher.
