WG 211 Women in Myth and Fairy Tale Take Home Final Choose ONE of the following  questions, and  answer it with  an 8 to 10 page evidence- based  essay: A)  To what extent do myths, folk tales, and  fairy tales shape culture, and  to what  extent   does culture shape myths, folk tales, and  fairy tales?  Use class readings, handouts,   discussions, and  the videos for examples to support  your statements.   B)  Choose one story or novel from four of the five sections of the syllabus  (Women's   Quest as Told by Men, Women's Quest as Told by Women, etc.).  Discuss how  all of the   women  enact power  in each of the four stories you select (don't  choose an analytical  reading!), and  what that depiction  reveals about the author's/culture’s assumptions,   background,  and  purposes.  Be sure to note how  power  itself is conceptualized  in each   story:  is it a traditional, power-over type or is it power-with, or empowerment?  Or is it  a combination  of the three -- or is it something  else altogether? NOTE:  If you choose this question, you may use "The Powers of the Handless Maid"
