Zipes (German, U. of Minnesota) has a special interest in fairy tales, and warns that popular literature for children during the 19th and 20th centuries are not all sugar and spice. He says they are primarily stories about childhood that adults tell children, and even experts do not know what children make of them; and systematically reflect the current values and norms of society, which instead of empowering children, curtail their freedom, and indoctrinate and homogenize them.
