Blog title…

February 18, 2012

I was searching other types of fairy tale breaking-and-entering today, and I discovered something new, at least to me. It’s called the Aarne-Thompson-Uther Tale classification System (abbreviated ATU), and it organizes thousands of plots into numbered types so folklorists can research and discuss them more easily. According to Wikipedia (http://ping.fm/7nVqs–Thompson_classification_system), Goldilocks is ATU 171, so I can look up other tales under that number and find many more tales to reference in my own story. Also, Sur La Lune Fairy Tales blog (http://ping.fm/GezxO) has a great description of an ATU book set that I’d love to buy as well as some very helpful links. So excited to read more!
