I bought this book to help with a paper I was writing on Beauty & the Beast themes in literature, but wanted to finish it even after the paper was done. It covers a wide range of versions of the story, with the full text of some versions preceding the discussion. It even includes two of my favorite versions: the 1987 television series staring Linda Hamilton & Ron Perlman and Disney's movie. The TV show could have had more time spent on it, though, and Disney's movie has some interpretations that I don't really agree with, but overall this book is a good read for any fan of this multi-layered, fairy-tale in all its various forms.

Jerry Griswold refers several times to the motif of unpeeling great works of literature like a never-ending artichoke, and that's exactly what he proceeds to do in The Meanings of "Beauty and the Beast": A Handbook. This classic fairy tale, which has appeared in myriad forms through the centuries and across cultures, is a particularly rewarding text for this treatment. Griswold traces themes in the ancient sources of the myth to concerns about endogamy (marrying out of one's cultural group), arranged marriages, and xenophobia, and finds in various modern interpretations the urge to reclaim wildness for women, a metaphor for the journey to integrated maturity for men, or a plea for acceptance of the Other. Along the way Griswold includes and comments on the texts of several early literary versions of the tale (Beaumont, Villeneuve, and Apuleius), a number of folkloric variations (most notably "Cinderella" and "East of the Sun, West of the Moon"), two modern retellings (by Angela Carter and Tanith Lee), some well-known illustrations (among them Walter Crane and Mercer Mayer), and two film versions (Cocteau and Disney). The chapter on critical sources, and the explications of each text, draw upon interpretive tools such as Jungian and Freudian analysis, feminist theory, and gay readings, all of which reveal fascinating perspectives on the root story. The inclusion of both text and commentary in this book would make it an excellent text for courses in folklore, world literature, psychology in literature, or fantasy literature. However, its major fault is that it lacks an index -- a crying shame for an otherwise scholarly but accessibly-written study.

I've loved the fairy tale _Beauty & the Beast_ since a young age, so when I found this book, I knew it was (IS!) a must-have. It doesn't disappoint. Griswold covers many (if not most) of the positive and negative aspects of this fairytale and how it can be "translated" into modern usage. _Beauty & the Beast_ is a fascinating story for many readers, and Griswold proves that it is the never-ending artichoke (a person can keep peeling back more and more layers to find further meaning) that he says it is.

Highly recommended for anyone who loves fairy tales and their underlying meanings and history.
