The Selkie's Song|Enchanted Fairytale Dreams



To most people today, the name ‘Snow White' evokes visions of dwarves whistling as they work and a wide-eyed, fluttery princess singing, “Some day my prince will come.” Yet the Snow White theme is one of the darkest and strangest to be found in the faerytale canon – a chilling tale of murderous rivalry, adolescent sexual ripening, poisoned gifts, blood on snow, witchcraft, and ritual cannibalism… In short, not a tale originally intended for children’s tender ears. — White As Snow, by Terri Windling.[Artwork: Snow White and The Queen, by Anna Dittmann.]
