The essays analyze the intersectino of fairy tale, fantasy and reality in postmodern artistic texts using cutting-edge trends, showing fairy-tale and fantasy to be omnipresent. Also, the authors note the transformation of both the reader-writer relationship and epistemological and ontological considerations by new technologies and emerging subgenres.
"...the volume includes essays that present exploratory discussions of modern-day reinventions of the fairy tale and fantasy from a variety of perspectives that draw on emergent critical discourses..." (Prof. Martine Hennard Dutheil de la Rochere)"
