"Between 1550 and 1650, marvellous stories of women giving birth to animals, young girls growing penises, and valiant men slaying dragons appeared in Europe. Circulated in scientific texts and in the first two collections of fairy tales published on the continent, Giovan Francesco Straparolas Le piacevoli notti and Giambattista Basiles Lo cunto de li cunti, the stories invigorated readers and established a new literary genre. Despite the fact that the printed European fairy tale was born in Italy, however, contemporary readers tend to think of France or Germany as the genres place of origin.Fairy-Tale Science looks at the birth of the literary fairy tale in the context of early modern discourses on the monstrous, and explains how scientific discourse and literary theories of the marvellous limited the genre's success on its native soil. Suzanne Magnanini argues that men of science positioned the fairy tale in opposition to science and fixed it as a negative pole in a binary system. This system came to define both a new type of scientific inquiry and the nascent literary genre. Magnanini also suggests that, by adopting theories of the monstrous as metaphors for their own literary production, Straparola and Basile aligned the literary fairy tale, the feminine, and the monstrous, and essentially marginalized the new genre.Fairy-Tale Science expands our understanding of the early modern European imagination and investigates the complex interplay between scientific discourse and marvellous literature."

In 1697, Charles Perrault published a volume of seven fairy tales, which continue to be widely read in the present day: "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella, or the Glass Slipper" "Puss in Boots," "Bluebeard," "Riquet and the Tuft," "The Fairy," and "The Little Thumbling." What did early Americans make of these fairy tales? Beginning in the late eighteenth century, American presses began publishing American editions of these fairy tales, indicating their cross-cultural appeal. In my close reading and analysis of the American versions against the French originals, I pay special attention to the behavioral prescriptions and moral ideals embedded in these stories. I argue that by publishing these tales without changes, Americans accepted and endorsed European cultural norms and assumptions. This suggests that, despite political rhetoric about the United States creating itself anew, many American agreed with the formulas for cultural success as expressed in Charles Perrault's original French fairy tales. Further, the cultural binaries not only were adopted by Americans without change, but these values clearly illuminate characteristics of American exceptionalism that was so important to early Americans during the revolutionary era. Historical scholarship has largely ignored the significance of using fairy tales to analyze culture. Scholars of early modern literature focus primarily on the psychological interpretations of each tale. While a number of scholars have compared French and German fairy tales, none have compared French fairy tales to their American versions, and none have studied these seven tales in their comparative historical contexts. I have identified four binaries which run through the tales and provide a formula for cultural success: beauty and ugliness; obedience and disobedience; knowledge and ignorance; goodness and wickedness. Further, I am examining each tale in the context of another language, culture, and historical era. I have found that the exportation and translation of the fairy tale did not change the basic narrative or the embedded prescriptions and ideals. The publication of these fairy tales show that Americans absorbed the cultural binaries and prescriptions that were embedded within the tales. Thus, from reading these tales, I argue that early Americans praised the traits of beauty, obedience to a benevolent authority (and disobedience to tyranny), intelligence, and goodness and therefore were hoping to pass these traits onto their younger generations.
