Entry #2

Topic: Develop a working definition of a fairy tale based on class discussions, stories and other articles we have read in class. 

          For me a Fairy Tale is a method that people use to explain why things happen the way that they do, or how things came to be. An example of this would be Aesop’s Fables, one of which explains why foxes are such sly creatures. Fairy Tales are also used as a form of entertainment and instilling hope, like what Walt Disney did with his movie versions of Fairy Tales like Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, etc. I believe that Fairy Tales are a way for use humans to express our hopes, thoughts and dreams in a way for others to understand.
