PREFACE ix Grateful acknowledgment is made to the various mem- bers of the staff of the Wilmington Institute Free Library who helped in the work of compiling and preparing for publication, especially to the Children's Librarian, Miss Katharine H. Thirty more famous stories. (James W^att and the teakettle.) FAIRY TALES 275 Waupee, the white hawk. Walsh, Michael G. “Grimms’ Kinder- und €rchen in Postmodern Contexts.” DisserHausma tation. Common to much postmodernist theorizing, especially that produced in the philosophical tradition of continental Europe that takes its bearings from Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, and Friedrich Nietzsche, is an antifoundationalism: that is, a critical attitude to the idea that underpinning our knowledge and understanding of the world and ourselves are certain indisputable principles or truths. (One useful means of distinguishing postmodernism from modernism is to say that modernism believes in the possibility of foundations, while postmodernism is skeptical.) Folktales and fairy tales have been seen at various points in history as offering potent expressions of fundamental facts of life: on questions of morality, of the means to succeed in the world, and of parent/child and male/female relations.

Only later in the century, during the period of Italian unification (1860–70), did tales and legends become the focus of positivistic and comparativistic studies and ethnographic collections. As a young man, Ewald taught natural history in Copenhagen, and in the spirit of Charles Darwin and natural science, his fairy tales aim to teach children the mechanisms of evolution and natural laws.

The legend of Kinderdijk and the tale of The Mermaid of Westenschouwen are popular folk stories. Most people in medieval Europe believed they could, and orthodox Christians assumed this would happen en masse at the time of the Last Judgment.

She has edited The Translation of Children’s Literature: A Reader (2006), and has also authored numerous chapters in books, as well as journal articles, on diverse topics such as Erich Kästner’s children’s novel Emil and the Detectives (1929), the marketing and translation of Harry Potter, and the concept of narrative time in children’s books. Perhaps the best of McKinley’s adaptations are Deerskin (1993) and Spindle’s End (2000), dealing respectively with the “Donkey Skin” tale and “Sleeping Beauty.” Deerskin is very much darker than Beauty, a development of the incestuous implications in the original tale; the princess is not only desired by her mad, enchanted father but also brutally raped by him before fleeing.
