MetadataShow full item record
The Inner Conversations of a Fairy Tale Princess is an ongoing YA novella that combines satire with Euro-American fairy tale tropes. The story follows a princess who grapples with her status as the least favored heir after her political marriage-to-be falls through. Presented via both third-person and first-person narration, the novella incorporates common fairy tale tropes (i.e. a heroine princess, evil stepsisters, a witch antagonist) and repurposes them. The heroine princess is an anxious girl unable to fulfill her happily ever after; the evil stepsisters are instead her comedic support system; and the witch antagonist is her would-be therapist. The purpose of this project is to re-examine the Euro-American fairy tale, which continually captures generations of impressionable minds: notably, those of young girls.
