Notes

Abstract: This thesis is a project that examines and pushes the limits of fairy tale intertextuality through a critical understanding of gender and disability. I use the term �intertextuality� as it was initially employed by poststructuralist theorists and critics, in their attempt to disrupt notions of stable meaning and objective interpretation. Adversely, the fairy tale tradition is notorious for perpetuating fixed meanings of gender ideology and its objective interpretation of what exactly constitutes a happily-ever-after. Perhaps stemming from its roots in the oral folk tradition of telling and re-telling, fairy tale intertextuality has the potential for re-imagining and re-contextualizing these norms. I intend to continue that tradition by reading and rereading the fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm in conjunction with Angela Carter�s reworking of Charles Perrault�s fairy tales. The extent of this intertextual project begins with my analysis of the Brothers Grimm collection and ends with my own fairy tale text.
