dc.description.abstract What is a modern fairy tale? Who should read these fairy tales? Why are reading fairy tales important? Fairy tales can come in many different forms and many different genres. Some fairy tales are written for children, some are written for adults, and some are written for readers of all ages. Stories like this are a very important part of a child’s development, and they continue to be important throughout our whole lives. While fairy stories can teach us valuable lessons, give us characters to relate to, and inspire us with wonder and joy, there are also certain dangers associated with reading fairy tales. Specifically, this paper will define the modern fairy tale and explain why it is still important today by referencing and expanding on quotes from the essays of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, G.K. Chesterton and George MacDonald. en_US
