Analyze what you have learned about fairy tales, their significance and how they have changed over time

Literary Criticism – ENGL 100

In this part of our course we have studied fairy tales and their messages as we read various versions of the tale Little Red Riding Hood. Using a reader response lens, in combination with a Feminist and a Historical Lenses (considered in Catherine Orenstein’s “Dances with Wolves: Little Red Riding Hood’s Long Walk into the Woods”), write a thesis-driven essay exploring the central messages in these versions of the fairy tale Little Red Hood. You should:

1.      Analyze what you have learned about fairy tales, their significance and how they have changed over time.

2.      Analyze the central similarities and differences in terms of plot, characterization, theme and imagery and what these mean.

3.      Reflect on the insights you have had about how your personal experience(s) has shaped your understanding (s) and appreciation of particular elements and/or versions of the tale.

4.      Include an analysis of the contemporary revision “Red” by Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot:

SHORT FILM OF THE WEEK: RED BY JORGE JARAMILLO AND CARLO GUILLOT

Who are we when we’re children? What is this world that surrounds us, that defines us? Who are we when we’re children and when do we change? When do we leave innocence and childhood behind? What is this world that transforms us?

Red by Jorge Jaramillo and Carlo Guillot takes a classic story that most of us know, probably by heart, and turns it into something so much more. It reminds me of Wolf Parts by Matt Bell, which is one of my favorite things he’s written. He deconstructs and transforms Red Riding Hood over and over until the familiar breaks apart, becomes something so very different, but somehow all the same. He captures the core elements of Red Riding Hood but first he rips them apart, stitches them back together, creating a sort of Frankenstein monster version of the fairytale. It looks right and feels right but it sounds like hell, like beauty, like all the different ways we recreate our life over and over. Like a memory of tragedy.
