Fannish Folklore: Feminist Fan-Fiction Retellings of Germanic Fairy Tales (German Studies in America #77) (Paperback)

By Susan Gustafson (Other), Gail Hart (Other), Peter Meilaender (Other)

This book explores the intersection of folklore and new media storytelling in feminist adaptations of traditional fairy tales, with a focus on the Germanic folktale and its reinterpretation within online fan fiction. The adaptations show the fascinating longevity of the folktale and its power to reimagine the Germanic past into the future.
