 Retelling Cinderella: Cultural and Creative Transformations
Edited by Nicola Darwood and Alexis Weedon

Cinderella¹s transformation from a lowly, overlooked servant into a
princess who attracts everyone¹s gaze has become a powerful trope within
many cultures. Inspired by the Cinderella archive of books and
collectables at the University of Bedfordshire, the essays in this
collection demonstrate how the story remains active in various different
societies where social and family relationships are adapting to modern
culture. The volume explores the social arenas of dating apps and prom
nights, as well as contemporary issues about women¹s roles in the home,
and gender identity.

Cinderella¹s cultural translation is seen through the contributors¹
international perspectives: from Irish folklore to the Colombian
Cenicienta costeña (Cinderella of the coast) and Spanish literary history.
Its transdisciplinarity ranges from fashion in Charles Perrault and the
Brothers Grimm¹s publications to a comparison of Cinderella and Galatea on
film, and essays on British authors Nancy Spain, Anne Thackeray Ritchie
and Frances Hodgson Burnett.
