Nostalgia: Origin, Greek nostos “return home” + algos “pain”
"Whan that April with his showres soote
The droughte of March hath perched the roote,
And bathed every veine in swich licour,
Of which vertu engendred is the flowr;
Whan Zephyrus eek with his sweete breeth
Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne
Hath in the Ram his halve cours yronne,
And smale fowles maken melodye
That sleepen all the the night with open yë—
So priketh hem Nature in hir corages—
Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgrimages…”
We don’t need European fairy tales retold with dark-skinned characters
We need non-European fairy tales being told
Race-bending isn’t the answer here
Realizing that there are children who have non-European heritages and cultures who need their own stories being given representation is the answer
Far more fantastical fancies exist outside the Western tradition. Use them!
The absence of women in history is man made.
The male ego is so fragile.
