Project Idea: Fairy Tale Villains

Most fairy tales have a villain; sometimes the villain is a mere mortal, but sometimes the villain has supernatural powers. Like in the popular Wicked series where Gregory Maguire gives us a new take on Oz by revising the "wicked witch" character, you can also focus on the villains to come up with new versions of the old fairy tales.

Research Tip: As with any fairy tale project, the key decision to make is whether you want to zoom in on a specific cultural tradition or whether you want to compare across traditions. See the Fairy Tales project page for research tips that will work for both approaches.
