This second part of our Rumpelstiltskin coverage focuses on the Trickster archetype. We talk about places that Trickster emerges in pop culture before analyzing the ways in which both Rumpel and the miller’s daughter channel trickster energy.
Part one’s story was read last month from Household Tales by Brothers Grimm.
Adina also recommends:
The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales (Pantheon Fairy Tale And Folklore Library). If attempting to purchase this, be sure it says, “with Padraic Colum (intro) and Joseph Campbell (commentary) and James Scharl (illustr)”. Amazon considers all versions to be the same book, so you could accidentally buy a copy without those key elements.
On the Psychology of the Trickster Figure. Written by C.G. Jung.
Trickster Makes This World: Mischief, Myth, and Art. Written by Lewis Hyde.
Our intro/outro music is from Antoni Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, performed by John Harrison with the Wichita State University Chamber Players. You can find the original at freemusicarchive.org
