Ineditors Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling offered up an anthology of fairy tales written expressly for an adult audience, Snow White, Blood Red. Featuring writers as distinct as Neil Gaiman, Jane Yolen, Tanith Lee, Charles de Lint and Patricia McKillip, the anthology contains nineteen fairy tales and one poem, as well as two introductory essays from the editors. Snow White screaming as she faints in the woods and the death of the Evil Queen terrorized generations of kids for a reason. And for all of the emphasis on traditional gender roles in the earlier Disney Princess movies not really broken until The Princess and the Frogwhich was not released until after this collectionthe image of three older women ing forces to fight against evil is a deeply subversive image.

Here, I want to focus more on the tales collected for this volume. Which does explain the perplexing problem of how that cat was able to talk in the original tale, but I digress. It works rather less well with the Little Red Riding Hood tales.

I found I had completely forgotten this story, years later. One warning: many of these stories have decidedly unhappy or at best emotionally ambiguous endings. Indeed, I think only two stories here can be said to have happy endings—the two comedic stories, not coincidentally. Still, tales written for children tended to have happier endings, and the unhappy endings of these tales were written for adults. A different sort of sorrow, a different sort of happiness, true, but still. But for whatever reason, it now seems to be out of print.

A few copies might linger around libraries and used bookstores, however, and—despite those unhappy endings—might well be worth your search. Receive notification by when a new comment is added.
