Title
The Cinderella No One Knows: The Grimm Brothers' Tale of Incest, Fur & Hidden Bodies
Summary
Folklorist Margaret R. Yocom discusses less well-known versions of Cinderella, particularly the international story of Allerleirauh, found in Asia and Africa as well as Europe. She focuses on the heroine and her journey through the gendered, sexually redolent landscape of the tale???s provocative middle section. As she explains, it is not the marriage at the end that draws the listener in, but the way the heroine makes her way there.
