Fairy Tales 2010

Saturday, January 16, 2010


Hi blogging group!

My name is Clara Martin, and I'm a freshman from Jackson, Mississippi. My major changes about every few weeks, and right now I think I will be an English major, possibly with a Spanish double major.

I actually signed up for this course because I did a research paper on the beauty of fairy tales 2nd semester of my senior year in high school, and I ended up having a sort of fascination for fairy tales of all types ever since.

Anyways, research led to reading a lot of fairy tales (including the Grimms), and when I saw the course description for this class, I signed up, and here I am now.

Following the trend I've seen from the posts above this one...I have no idea how to blog, but it doesn't look too hard, and I think we'll have fun!

Can't wait to meet all of you!



Hi, I'm Caroline Srygley!

I'm a senior English Lit major from Fayetteville Arkansas (Go Hogs!). I don't know much about German fairy tales in particular, but love the classics that I grew up with-- the Disney versions of course! I've never blogged...and that's about it!
(Also, please ignore the big turtle to the right...I just wanted to play around with the post format and whatnot)


Hey Guys!

My name's Nicole Harkinson. I'm a senior majoring in English and minoring in film studies and Italian. I've read several Italian folk tales so I'm excited to see how the German fairy tales compare.

By the way, I've never really used a blog before so bear with me. I look forward to meeting y'all or at least discussing the readings together!
