Marvels & Tales Volume 25, Number 2

Little in the field of fairy-tale studies is totally new. One genuinely innovative event, however, was without question Jacques Barchilon’s founding of Merveilles et contes in 1987. To be sure, Barchilon had been inspired by Fabula: Zeitschrift für Erzählforschung/Journal of Folktale Studies/Revue d’études sur le conte populaire, which had first appeared thirty years earlier. But Jacques Barchilon’s new journal— which was titled Merveilles & contes/Marvels & Tales/Wunder & Märchen/Maravilla & cuentos/Meraviglie & racconti and challenged many a cataloger and bibliographer—reflected not only the vivid personality and creativity of its founder but also the exploding field of fairy-tale studies itself, which was simultaneously thriving and struggling to define its scope and place.
