Fabulation Assignment

Tips for Retelling a Story

In as many words as it takes (there is no upper limit on length, but still following the formatting guidelines below), retell a fable, parable, or moral story to make it more directly accessible and applicable in our day and age.  Really have fun with this one - explore some of the more fanciful tales of the Grimm brothers, Perault, Andersen, Dahl, and others, and just go wild with it.  You are free to be creative and fanciful as you like, provided the general theme of 1) the tale, and 2) the moral of the story are maintained.  Embrace your inner(?) nerd.

Typed, double-spaced, 12pt. Times New Roman font, 1" margins.

Alternately, you may record and post a YouTube video with the same content; if you choose this option, please shoot for 10 minutes or less (i.e., the time it would probably take you to read aloud a 500-1000 word paper).  Post the URL instead of attaching the paper or following the text entry option.

Interpretations & Analysis

Welcome, PHIL 2321 students!

4 things about this list of books:

  1. Collections of tales are marked with a gold star (). You can find copies of a fable, parable or story in these.
  2. Need insight or cultural variations of a tale? That's what the other books are for. You might wish to start with one of these to help you pick out a tale you're interested in.
  3. Want the location and call number? Click through on the book's title.
  4. Browse the book's location and call number to find more items like these on the shelf. This list is not meant to be exhaustive! My hope is that the list will interest you in coming to the MLC 3rd floor to discover the true gems I've probably missed!

Good luck, have fun and let me know if you need more help.
