Little Red Riding Hood

kinneretstern

Little Red Riding Hoodby Ray Harryhausen (1949, claymation). According to Bruno Bettelheim, the famous child psychologist, when a particular faerie tale or folk story captures our imagination, this is because the motifs in the story speak to underlying issues in our own lives. In Little Red Riding Hood, this includes sexuality, coming of age, and the threat of masculine drives, violence, and desires against innocence and feminine virtue.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
