To be sure, interest in the fairy tale is hardly breaking news, and historical surveys reveal a long lineage and international presence. However, this history is also characterized by periods of profound interest and prolific production. For instance, the so-called French fairy-tale vogue of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries generated a corpus of tales that was so extraordinary and influential that it even gave a special name to the genre—“conte de fees”—which later gave birth to the English term “fairy tale.” Germany during the late eighteenth and the early nineteenth centuries provides another case in point. The period was characterized on the one hand by the German Romantics’ creative experimentation with the literary fairy tale and on the other by the cultural reverence and scholarly enthusiasm for folktales that produced Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s landmark collection, the Kinder- und Hausm€archen (Children’s and Household Tales, 1812–15). These two manifestations of what Jack Zipes has called the “German obsession with fairy tales” were the catalysts for the further spread of the literary fairy tale, the widespread collecting and editing of folktales, and the birth of folktale scholarship. By 1878, when the Folk-Lore Society was established in London, the study of folktales and fairy tales had developed into a recognizable discipline, and the way had been paved for the “golden age of folklore discovery,” that fruitful period in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries characterized by the collection and publication in English of folktales from around the word (Jacobs, ii). Such “vogues,” “obsessions,” and “golden ages” map for us both the persistence of the folktale and fairy tale and those periods in which there has been intense activity around them.
