Little Red is back again. September 3, 2009

Posted by phoenixaeon in Children's Literature, EA300, LRRH, OU.

I’m still waiting – yes, I know. This blog is all about the waiting recently. Bummer. – for the course books to be despatched. Grrr, frustration rules. But after asking about the first TMA question on the course forum a couple of the kind folks emailed me the two, yes two, questions we could choose between. Now, as much as I’d like to write about Northern Lights or Harry Potter, the second question intrigued me more. The question concerned the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale and asked to what extent it was a children’s story. Oooh, there could be arguments made there.

I was chuffed with this question simply because I have already done a lot of reading around for LRRH (it still won’t stop me reading around for Harry Potter and Northern Lights though. Once I start I have to keep going!). I did that a couple of years ago when I had a go at writing an up to date and twisty version of the story. So now I am feeling slightly happier and a little relieved and I can’t wait to receive the course materials to get started. I am wondering what version of LRRH they have chosen to use and what specific essays they want referenced – even though I’ll reference a lot of other stuff. How can I not? And with the many versions and various media adaptations, I am thinking I might even be able to get some intertextuality in there too. Ooh, here I go, I’m starting to use big words! Yay!

I am so glad I have something to narrow my focus on. I think the not knowing was the biggest part of my fear. And with that, I think I will bow out now and check my bookmarks to make sure I still have the LRRH squirrelled away.
