Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm never cease to enchant us, presumably because the so amazingly describe problems and what we can gain or lose when it comes to our family and love relationships. Through reading numerous stories, Marc Girard reveals dramatic effects of parents causing harm and parental incompetence. Then he analyzes the creative power of love and support in shaping a character, giving it the strength to overcome the pain that it endures, as well as its shortcomings.
Contrary to the dominant Western tradition - that of Tristan and Isolde - the Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm do not bond love with death: surprisingly, also subversively, they sing praise to the realization of desires in life, a real lover opposite a heartless social order and the ability of those who like to break the inevitable fate that separates and destroys.
Marc Girard (1955) is a French literary critic, psychotherapist, physician and mathematician. In addition to numerous scientific papers, he published a literary criticism on the works of Flaubert, Balzac, Zola, and Grimm's stories. The theme of the book Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm - psychoanalytic reading combines his interest in psychoanalysis and in literature.
