Fairy tales have become both a staple and a point of contention in contemporary culture, with some painting them as harmless and others insisting they create unrealistic expectations about life and love. The attention these stories continue to attract these days and the availability of many of these texts online make them a perfect starting point for this week’s found poem.
This week’s theme is FAIRY TALES.
Whether you’re young or just young at heart, use one or more fairy tales as the source text for this week’s poem. Check out the following source texts for inspiration:
- Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales and Stories
- Grimm’s Fairy Tales
- Disney movie scripts
- Aesop’s Fables (not quite fairy tales, but in the same family!)
