Reading of a Chapter with follow up questions.

Hi Writer. Please read “Folktale Liberation” a chapter of Alison Lurie’s, Don’t Tell the Grown Ups. I’ll attach the chapter. Followed by answering 4 questions on the chapter.
1) What classes of people are most celebrated and affirmed in fairy tales according to Lurie’s account?
2) She speaks of various critics of fairy tales, what according to her has been the general argument against the traditional fairy tales being made available to children?
3) How does she characterize fairy tale heroines? Does she see them as Andrea Dworkin sees them in “Woman Hating”?
4) According to her who were the original creators of fairy tales? What was the difference between them and the scholars who later came to collect the fairy tales?
