I've read Jane Yolen's book "touch magic" and afterwards I ran to the library to borrow "The uses of enchantment" by Bruno Bettelheim...
Are there more books in this vein ? It really IS enchanting to go back to all those childhood tales and to look at them from another point of view...

Marie Louise Von Franz published by Shambala Press:

THE INTERPRETATION OF FAIRY TALES (1970, Revised Ed. 1993)
THE FEMININE IN FAIRY TALES (1972, Revised Ed. 1993)
SHADOW AND EVIL IN FAIRY TALES (1974, Revised Ed. 1995)
INDIVIDUATION IN FAIRY TALES (1977, Revised Ed. 1990)

They are helpful.. I have been a willingly beguiled servant of their content all my life.

"The Witch Must Die: The Hidden Meaning of Fairy Tales" by Sheldon Cashdan
Published by Basic Books

Gives you an idea of why Disney is WAY off of how we should be raising our children hehehehe.

Hmmm... This IS an interesting small topic... Leslie Melville has also some recommandations on his site.
And for the stories themselves as well as some (little) background info you can't go wrong with the "enchanted world" series, however in these books the stories aren't analysed but, instead are put together in some kind of "magical" worldview which I found most intrigueing...
