Over the past two centuries, writers and scholars have advanced arguments for profound, hidden meanings in popular narrative traditions. This lecture explores some of these arguments, touching upon psychoanalytic, political and socio-historical explanations of the meaning of fairytales. Ultimately, however, this lecture proposes that fairytales mean what each generation wants them to mean, and this is why they have survived.
