Red shoes : obsessive and contagious narratives

thesis
posted on 2001-01-01, 00:00 authored by Melanie. Calvert
The fairytale motif of the red shoes continues to fascinate many contemporary authors and artists. What inspires these obsessive and contagious narratives? The raw, unfettered femaleness of the red shoes, reminiscent of the pre-oedipal realm, suggests a means of escaping confining patriarchal conceptions of woman, desire and creativity.
