It seems to me, the world's interest in
folk tales peaked about two centuries ago.




Sometimes I wish there existed some kind of god.

Maybe your interest peaked two hundred years ago, but I'd say that King Arthur, Robin Hood, Cinderella, Red Riding Hood, and all the rest are still just as popular as ever - even though they've grown into Disney Princesses . . .

Though they've been disinfected to death, they still go on.
