Would you like to tell me something about your interest in fairytales?

I first began reading traditional fairy tales ( a la Hans Christian Anderson) as a child. Later, while in college, I was introduced to Feminist Fairy Tales by a fellow English Major and was so blown away by them that fairy tales became the focus of my English studies. I have an extensive collection of fairy tales (texts) from different cultures and perspectives, along with texts on interpretation and symbolism. I will never tire of the study of fairy tales and feel as though deep knowledge of them contributes meaning and understanding of my life and the world around me.

Have you ever been part of a dream group, studied or read about Jungian psychology?

I have never been in a dream group but have read and studied Jungian psychology extensively, along with the texts by Joseph Campbell which I feel expand Jungs' work.

Do you have a favorite fairytale?

This is a nearly impossible question to answer. If you're asking which recurring plot narrative I like best, it would probably be "Sleeping Beauty" because it is the one I find most personally meaningful. As for a single written version of a fairy tale that I like best, I think that Jonathon Carroll's retelling of "Rumpelstiltskin" in "Sleeping in Flame" is masterful.
