The Fairy Tale Review

I just discovered The Fairy Tale Review, an annual literary journal dedicated to publishing new fairy tales. I’m so excited to know this exists! Ordered The Grey Issue and can’t wait to start reading!

The Holy Furies and Xanax

“The Furies are really to be revered and not simply bought off; in fact, they cannot be bought off )not even by our tranquilizers and sleeping pills) but are to be placated only through being given their just and due respect.”

from Irrational Man by William Barrett

-He also suggests that in The Oresteia by Aeschylus the opposition between The Furies and Apollo represents the opposition between the old earth deities  and the new god, reason. Just ordered myself a nice hardcover copy for .$79 on Amazon… perhaps this play could be modernized to express our struggles with The Furies today, and our ill-advised attempt to buy them off with pharmaceuticals…
