His most important works include: "Political Plays for Children, 1976", "Breaking the Magic Spell: Radical Theories of Folk and Fairy Tales, 1979", "Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion: The Classical Genre for Children and the Process of Civilization, 1983", "The Trials and Tribulations of Little Red Riding Hood: Version of the Tale in Socio-cultural Context, 1983", "The Brothers Grimm: From Enchanted Forests to the Modern World,1988", and "Fairy Tale as Myth, Myth as Fairy Tale, 1993".Dr. Zipes has evolved innovative theories to interpret the role of fairy tales, beginning with the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm and Perrault, in the civilization of western society, and the education and socialization of children from the perspective of socio-cultural history.
His research on fairy tales has been greatly influencial in that area, but he has also given new direction to the fields of cultural research, media research, and gender research. His works appear not only in English, but have been translated into German, French, Swedish, Spanish, and Japanese. The magnitude, width, and depth of his influence can be seen in his activities which include lectures in many countries, and the degree to which his name is known worldwide. Dr. Zipes has also been the editor for many years of the critical journal of children's literature "THE LION AND UNICORN", and is active as a researcher of children's literature and as a story teller. Because of all of these activities he is highly regarded by the international community for the scale of his contributions to the development of research in children's literature.
THE REPRINTING OF "MAME NO KI"
- INFLUENTIAL POSTWAR LITERARY COTERIE MAGAZINE -
The Institute is involved in the reproduction of various texts.
The present reproduction is of the magazine 'MAME NO KI" of which seven volumes were published (from March through August 1950, 5 volumes, and from March to May, 1953, two volumes). The magazine was started to exchange ideas about children's literature between the four authors Inui Tomiko, Kanbe Junkichi, Sato Satoru, and Nagasaki Gennosuke with Hiratsuka Takeji. Among works which were published here were Inui's "By the Tree" which was the base for "The Little People of the House in the Shade of the Tree", and "The Dormant Volcano", Kanbe's "Squint-eyed Comrades", Sato's "The Child Without a Name Children" and Nagasaki's "Hikoji", and "The Wind Harp".
The first issue included messages of congratulations and encouragement from Ogawa Mimei, Hamada Hirosuke, and Yoda Junichi. Also included in the first issue of this reprint are book reviews of "Twenty-four Eyes" which had just been published at that time and the last issue includes the results of surveys and research on children's reading materials, making this a priceless collection of data for following the development of children's literature.
Osaka Shoseki has published this reproduction which is made up of eight volumes including a commentary.
