Summary/Abstract: The volume is a collection of 18 papers that examine the relationships between fairy tales and games/play from a variety of perspectives, taking on a broad range of research problems, methodological approaches and source materials. The contributors seek not only to elucidate the treatment of the game/play motif in fairy tales, but also to uncover the mechanics of intertextual and inter-medial play with the fairy tale tradition in American, British, Georgian, Icelandic, Austrian, Swiss and Polish culture. As such, the book showcases the richness and multi-layered quality of the “fairy tale and game/play” thematic complex, serving as inspiration and encouragement for continued research.
