Snow White

Why oh why are fairy tales always so damned illuminating? Yikes!

See Grimm's Little Snow White, Translator's notes #2:

Some differences between the edition of 1812 and later versions:

Beginning with the edition of 1819, the Grimms add the statement that Snow-White's mother died during childbirth, and that her father remarried. In the first edition, presumably the version closest to its oral sources, Snow-White's jealous antagonist is her own mother, not a stepmother.


Are you fucking kidding me? It makes so much sense!

I wish I was a fairy tale historian or somethin'.

Bruno Bettelheim 说过,在童话里,继母和母亲是一个人,代表儿童成长的不同阶段时和母亲和关系。

我是听 MIT open course 的心理课讲 Freud 那堂时听那老师推荐的,确实精采。推荐一听。整个心理课都很好,一直是 MIT 最受欢迎课程之一,老师因为教太好了,结果没拿到 tenure,只好去 Harvard 了。

我博客里曾提过两段。可惜网站更新,我也不知道还要等多久。现在就偶尔在 知乎 网上说两句。等恢复了再通知你吧。
