Fairytales matter because they help to teach valuable lessons and instill morality in those who read them. While the target audience is generally thought of to be children, fairytales can be enjoyed by people of all ages, and the lessons will remain the same. That’s not to say they’re not good for children, however, as they certainly are. They teach children about life and the difference between right and wrong in a way that they can find interesting. What I learned through this course was the rich history of fairytales and how there’s much more to all the different stories than just what the Disney versions show us. I found the histories of all the different tales, many of which I’d never even heard of, very interesting. I don’t feel as if anything was missed or left out of the course, and overall I found it to be a good experience.
