Section:

No. 19 (2014)  Editorial

Abstract:

This article aims to decipher the semiotic journey which is experienced by the fairy tale characters in the tradition of storytelling. From a semiotic perspective, every storytelling process transfers its own perception to the reader; in other words, every text creates its own reader. Storytelling in fairy tales reconfigures the moral history ideologically in order to maintain the so-called integrity and continuity of religious, cultural, politic and economic values. When the reader/the child is attracted into the text, then s/he accepts what is given by the narrator without any objection. The author will tackle aspects such as: how fairy tales serve as the cultural adaptors of transference, revision and duplication of moral histories through signs in nature for inhabiting the traditional patriarchal moral stance in the brains to shape a certain identity.
