We’ve made it to Friday, and have also arrived at our final “five favourite fairy tales” assignment post. Thank you so much to Professor Pamela Dalziel and her students in the English course “The Victorian Fairy Tale: Text and Image” for sharing these with us! Be sure to read all of the fairy tale assignments kindly shared by Professor Dalziel’s students.
For this assignment, Professor Dalziel asked her students to “choose five illustrated Victorian fairy tales available in Rare Books and Special Collections that you would like to have in your personal collection.”
We hope you enjoy these final fairy tale selections and will perhaps be inspired to stop by RBSC to see some of the books for yourself once the RBSC reading room has reopened.
Five fairy tale selections, part VIII:
- “There was an old lady…”: Representations of Old Women in Five Victorian Fairy Tales
- New clothes, sailing voyages, Prince Perrypets, Robinson Crusoe, and seven wonderful cats
