Reply To: Multi-Cultural Cinderella Tales: Equals, but not the Same””


One of my favorite units in the seventh-grade literature text I used with my students twenty years ago was titled “900 Cinderellas” – a compilation of several versions of the Cinderella motif from multiple cultures – a lovely way to introduce my students to myth and fairy tale (I think that was Houghton-Mifflin, or maybe Prentic Hall, but I’m not sure now; there were so many textbook adoptions over the years, and I’m at the age where I have senior moments).

The same textbook publisher is the first where I ran across references to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey. Ironically, that lesson wasn’t about myth, but Jack London’s The Call of the Wild.
