This week's question courtesy of Parajunkee's Follow Friday is:
Q: In light of the Summer Solstice. Also known as Midsummer...let's talk about fairies. What is your favorite fairy tale or story that revolves around the fae?
I wish I had more time to spend with this, but as I'm rushing out the door for work I'm going to say Charles Perrault's La Belle au bois dormant, better known as Sleeping Beauty. I love the original French version and the English translations as well as the Disney version that's more or less based on Tchaikovsky - but who doesn't love Tchaikovsky? There's another one that is escaping the name of me that I've translated before myself but I forget the name of it. I'll have to think on it!
As for books and the fae can I say Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series and the play it was based on, A Midsummer Night's Dream - which I love seeing performed in Central Park on occasion during the summer!
