Spinning New Tales from Traditional Texts: Donna Jo Napoli and the Rewriting of Fairy Tale.
Crew, Hilary S.
Children's Literature in Education, v33 n2 p77-95 Jun 2002
Demonstrates how Donna Jo Napoli changes generic conventions and reworks discursive formations in order to retell tradition tales. Discusses the narrative strategies she uses in telling her stories, her representation of male and female characters in regard to gender and gendered relationships, and the way she renegotiates ideologies and value systems encoded in the tradition tales.
