Large Image: Albert Camus - Banquet Speech Albert Camus' speech at the Nobel Banquet at the City Hall in Stockholm, December 10, 1957 (Translation) In receiving the distinction with which your free Academy has so generously honoured me, my gratitude has been profound, particularly when I consider the extent to which this recompense has surpassed my personal merits. Every man, and for stronger reasons, every artist, wants to be recognized. So do I. But I have not been able to learn of your decision without comparing its repercussions to what I really am.

List of fairy tales A modern definition of the fairy tale, as provided by Jens Tismar's monologue in German, is a story that differs "from an oral folk tale"; is written by "a single identifiable author"; can be characterised as "simple and anonymous"; and exists in a mutable and difficult to define genre with a close relationship to folktales.[1] Jump up ^ Zipes, xvJump up ^ Laura Gibbs (July 12, 2003).

The Origin Of Fairy Tales The origin of fairy tales dates back thousands of years. The history of fairy tales or fairy stories have fantasy creatures such as faeries, fey, goblins, elves, trolls, witches, giants, and or talking animals. It is not necessary for these tales to be about fairies. Enchantments and far-fetched events are also usually part of the plot. Unlike legends and folklore tales, they seldom contain any references to religion, actual places, persons or events. The term "once upon a time" is used rather than an actual reference to date.

The Evolution of Snow White: ‘Magic Mirror, on the Wall, Who Is the Fairest One of All?’ “We owe it to each other to tell stories.” — Neil Gaiman, Locks (1999) 2012 has seen a minor war of adaptations of the classic fairy tale, “Snow White.” Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror and the forthcoming release from director Rupert Sanders, Snow White and the Huntsman, have been pitted against one another since the two films were announced, despite the disparity between the films’ targeted audiences. A renewed interest in “Snow White” is hardly surprising, given its main themes of adolescent sexuality, witchcraft, ritualistic cannibalism, and a murderous rivalry. Myths in words and pictures: Understanding the importance of symbols Achelous was the god of the most powerfully flowing river in Greece, and so was the chief of all the river gods.

Red Riding Hood: Neurology, Narrative & Storytelling Stories are a form of communication, and they open doors. Doors to understandings and concepts that are unbound in time – their relevancies shift according to circumstances, environment and culture. 'To understand and remember stories, readers integrate their knowledge of the world with information in the text. Here we present functional neuroimaging evidence that neural systems track changes in the situation described by a story. Different brain regions track different aspects of a story, such as a character's physical location or current goals. Some of these regions mirror those involved when people perform, imagine, or observe similar real-world activities.
