Working with Grimms’ Household Tales as your primary source (or another fairy tale, folk tale, or mythological tale that is agreed upon by your instructor), you are to investigate your primary source’s disease, ailment, or disorder that motivates some element of the story you choose to analyze. Along with the medical or psychological research that you do for this assignment, you will also be doing research to provide a cultural study of the region and time period in which this tale emerged. The analysis of your tale will incorporate research that crosses several disciplines, from the humanities to medical, and psychological sciences.
For this assignment you are creating an annotated bibliography with no fewer that ten sources in MLA format. One will be your primary source, the original story, and the rest will be supplementary material (books, articles, and other types of information) to support your argument.
An Annotated Bibliography is a list of sources, formatted in MLA style, where each source is followed by a paragraph that talks about the source. This paragraph is the "annotation" for that article.
In your annotations, provide a brief description and an evaluation of the source. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
The list below includes suggested topics that you may find connected to a fairy tale. This is not an exhaustive list!
