Abstract

Animals are good to think with, as Claude-Lévi Strauss famously told us, and fairy tales confirm that wisdom. Stories from the childhood of culture may have moved into the culture of childhood, but they engage with adult matters, taking up and disturbing the line dividing nature from culture, predator from prey. We will begin with a girl, a wolf, and an encounter in the woods.
