I wanted to ask your opinion.
I was thinking that I should start posting at the weekends, just maybe on the sundays- but I couldn’t think what to do- then I had an idea, but I wonder if it is good idea, or a crap idea.
I’m a fan of fairytales. In the sense of, the original, cautionary, actually-quite-gorey fairytales. As a result, I have a couple of books crammed with the original tales by the Brothers Grimm, Perrault etc.
I thought, what if I start a string of posts which will not only properly help me read these books, but also inspire discussions about the tales, their essences, how they’ve changed over the generations (e.g. Cinderella actually attending the ball three times and her slippers being made of fur) and how they are perceived and their morals etc. I thought this could be an interesting thing to do because so many people only really know the Disney-fied tales and not so much the more obscure ones (myself included!)
So what if I started doing a string of discussion posts, where I talk about one fairytale a week, give a summary of what actually happens in the fairytale, and then provide the opportunity to discuss and compare versions of the tales with you guys?
Would this be interesting to you, or just plain stupid?
