In Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked Catherine Orenstein reveals for the first time the intricate sexual politics, moral ambiguities, and philosophical underpinnings of Red Riding Hood's epic journey to her grandmother's house--and how, from the nursery on, fairy tales influence our view of the world. Beginning with its first publication as a cautionary tale on the perils of seduction, written in reaction to the licentiousness of the court of Louis XIV, Orenstein traces the many lives the tale has lived since then, from its appearance in modern advertisements for cosmetics and automobiles, the inspiration it brought to poets such as Anne Sexton, and its starring role in pornographic films. In Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked, Red appears as seductress, hapless victim, riot grrrrl, femme fatale, and even she-wolf, as Orenstein shows how through centuries of different guises, the story has served as a barometer of social and sexual mores pertaining to women. Full of fascinating history, generous wit, and intelligent analysis, Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked proves that the story of one young girl's trip through the woods continues to be one of our most compelling modern myths.… (mais)

A great book that has particularly strong chapters on the Perrault and Grimms' versions of the famous fairy tale. It is an excellent introduction to how the tale has changed, and more importantly, why it has changed in response to particular social and cultural conditions. I wish the analysis were a little more in depth at points, but this is an appropriate introduction in many ways. Chapters go on to discuss the sexualization of the fairy tale in popular culture with revisions like that of Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, and there is a short chapter discussing fairy tale porn ("The Punishment of Red Riding Hood") which skirts the feminist porn debate but argues that porn is about archetypes, and fairy tales are all about archetypes.

This is an approachable, easy read that I do recommend to anyone curious about the history of this story. ( )

Sinopsis:
Oresntein abre nuestros ojos al poder que tienen los personajes que estas historias de nuestro inconsciente cultural y nos muestran cómo continuamos reciclando el cuento para reinterpretar nuestro género, identidad, sexualidad y violencia.

Interesting book. Orenstein definitely writes not for the folklorist, anthropologist, or sociologist but for the general audience. As such, she dedicates some time to explain what the study of folklore is and providing history those familiar with the field will find boring. However, she provides just enough explanation of rather academic concepts to allow a discussion of them amongst lay readers. Further, she clearly has done some research. But the treading the line between popular non-fiction and academia, I'm left wondering whether her research was complete or if she only found anecdotes to illustrate her points.

She presents 10 different iterations of the Little Red Riding Hood story from the first published edition during the decadent reign of Louis XIV of France to the oral traditions that are believed to pre-date it to the well-known iterations from Grimm brothers to manifestations in feminist re-writes and pornography. Her analysis of the social atmosphere generating each story is interesting, but I find some of them flawed. For instance, she discusses feminist's anti-porn views, but ignores the feminists who were/are not anti-porn.

All in all, an interesting and quick read. ( )
