The Little Mermaid – Hans Christian Andersen

This week has been full of highs and lows. The crazy electoral race between Biden and Trump, another lockdown starting in England and just the general rubbish which comes with daylight savings of short days and long drawn out nights. This led me to giving this darker than dark story a thought, and how it... Continue Reading →

Little Red Hat

We all know the story of "Little Red Riding Hood", right? WRONG! No, you know the tamed edition which is nice and child friendly where Red escapes with the help of a friendly woodcutter, and they manage to cut Grandma out of the wolf's stomach and everyone lives happily ever after. Well...while the Brothers Grimm... Continue Reading →

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

In the weird story game, Europe has to be up there in the top 5, which is probably what made it so easy for the Brothers Grimm to collect so many creepy and totally dark tales of people being either completely manic or mistreated. This is not to say that other cultures don't have such... Continue Reading →

The Three Snake Leaves

I can honestly say that this week I feel like the world has gone a little bit crazy. The ease of lock down measures seem crazy - having to self isolate if I travel, but not until after the 8th June, I can have up to six people with me in my garden, but they... Continue Reading →

The Girl Without Hands

This is the third article I have written about stories from the Brother Grimm collection, but what I have realise is that not everyone knows about them...admittedly I assumed everyone did... simply because it is so common place for me. The Brothers Grimm did not write the stories that were in their books. They were... Continue Reading →

Snow White

I find it amusing how simple and compliant the heroines in stories can be sometimes.  Some of them have been through horrible things, but don't appear to have trust issues of any sort.  They appear to walk blindly into traps, and hope by the grace of God that there is a man around to help...

Rapunzel

I often talk about the importance of understanding stories, culture and history as a key to understanding art and films.  It gives you a firm grounding to use applied knowledge and link subjects together that are comparable.  Folk/fairy stories serve a purpose to deliver a moral and to entertain.  Many of the tales we tell...

Film – Midsommer

I have said it before... I went to see the remake of "The Wickerman" just to see Nicholas Cage burn at the end.  I appreciate it is a brash statement, and actually, I don't wish the guy any harm (just in case he stumbles across this one day and thinks I am the one that... Continue Reading →

Snow Queen – Michael Whelan

Occasionally, I get accused of being cold....almost icy. I do have a small tendency to not always pick up on entries in to conversations about personal things about other people, generally it is not because I am rude, I just don't have a point of reference to talk about the hidden agenda subject. As an... Continue Reading →
