Dark Fairy Tales
I have been reading old European folk tales recently,they are a fascinating read. The Russian one's are particularly interesting, all the principle men are called Ivan, and all the heroines are called Vasilisa.
It seems that in Russian Fairy tales the women called the shots... and the men loved them for it! x
