Psicanálise dos contos de fadas (a.k.a. The uses of enchantment, 2011), Bruno Bettelheim

Situando-nos de volta ao país mágico da infância e devolvendo-nos o encanto e maravilhamento dessa época, Bruno Bettelheim revela-nos nesta sua brilhante obra a inigualável importância dos contos de fadas que, para além do seu papel educativo, estimulam e libertam as emoções das crianças. Um livro cuja leitura se torna essencial!

Bruno Bettelheim was one of the great child psychologists of the twentieth century and perhaps none of his books has been more influential than this revelatory study of fairy tales and their universal importance in understanding childhood development. Analyzing a wide range of traditional stories, from the tales of Sindbad to “The Three Little Pigs,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “The Sleeping Beauty,” Bettelheim shows how the fantastical, sometimes cruel, but always deeply significant narrative strands of the classic fairy tales can aid in our greatest human task, that of finding meaning for one’s life.
