Book Review: More Than True

May 3, 2019

Have you ever wondered how classic fairy tales have come to be, or what they were really trying to say? Poet Robert Bly has been asking these questions, and attempts to find an answer in his book More Than True: The Wisdom of Fairy Tales. Six tales are retold in this book, and Bly adds his own ideas on the meaning and origin of these stories. West Lafayette Library Director Nick Schenkel has the review.
