Abstract

Having read Nemanja Radulović’s article (in Aries 14 [2014] 190–214), which is devoted to my book Les Contes de Grimm: Mythe et Initiation (1979), I feel the need to address certain issues raised by the author. I agree almost entirely with everything the author writes about this book. His presentation and criticism thereof are honest and thorough. Besides, as far as the study of fairy tales and related fields is concerned, his article is well documented, methodologically sound, and should be considered as a must for scholars dealing with these areas of study. My disagreement with Radulović centres on the fact that he presents my methodological approaches of the late 1970s without reference to the substantial modifications I have incorporated into my work over the intervening years. His tendency to underestimate that change occasionally results in striking inconsistencies: Although he admits that I have turned ‘to the empirical-historical approach, especially since 1992–1993’ (p. 213), he immediately continues by stating that I ‘continue to hold Bettelheim’s and Jung’s position’ about fairy tales. Rather bizarrely Radulović draws this conclusion by drawing on pages 123–124 of my 1979 monograph! Furthermore, he adds, in reference to my later publications, that I still
