Discussion Board 8: The Abject in “Bluebeard” Folklore

This online forum focuses on closely reading the abject in the Bluebeard folklore that inspired Carter’s and Atwood’s adaptations.After this week, we should really have a solid context for interpreting those completely different adaptations closely and getting at the bigger significance of those changes.

Before Posting to the Board:

  • READ: Perrault,”Bluebeard,” Brothers Grimm, “Fitcher’s Bird” and “Robber Bridegroom,” and Jacobs, “Mr. Fox” (Norton 144-156).
  • Review the definition of “abject,” review the handout and screencast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2tE1tQoY1I&feature=youtu.be, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G8UF1MC12o&feature=youtu.be

Task 1. Create an Original Post in two paragraphs (5-10 sentences each):

Paragraph 1: Where do you see abject objects, actions, or forms of abjection in the different stories? You can also discuss the importance of exposing abject deeds to the rest of society (the woman’s family) in order to gain individual and social stability. Identify specific details from the stories and explain.

Paragraph 2: Provide a single quote about the abject or abjection from one of the stories and analyze (take apart or “unpack” the implicit meaning) how the words, symbols, etc. suggest a message about abjection, domestic violence, clever heroines, or another related topic.

Last Line: Raise a question that will help us discuss the major message.
