Before Charles Perrault, Hans Christian Anderson, and the Grimm brothers, there existed stories that we read and heard which were told through oral tradition. Later on, they were adapted by these authors into written form and reinterpreted into a version pertinent to their respective eras. Like these authors, I have re-envisioned folktales for contemporary times. By addressing the anxieties of this moment, these written works are rendered more relevant for modern lives and their concerns.
