Abstract

I analyze how Kurahashi Yumiko (1935–2005) reworks the Grimms’ “Snow White” in the fairy-tale collection Otona no tame no zankoku dōwa (Cruel Fairy Tales for Adults). Exploring Kurahashi’s approach to fairy tales and her controversial relation with postmodernism and gender studies, I focus on how “Shirayuki hime” (Snow White) reproduces and deconstructs the models of femininity conveyed by the Grimms’ tale.
