Vladimir Propp, in his Morphology of the Folktale, criticized the common distinction between "fairy tales" and "animal tales" on the grounds that many tales contained both fantastic elements and animals. [11] Nevertheless, to select works for his analysis, Propp used all Russian folktales classified as a folk lore Aarne-Thompson 300-749 – in a cataloguing system that made such a distinction – to gain a clear set of tales. [12] His own analysis identified fairy tales by their plot elements, but that in itself has been criticized, as the analysis does not lend itself easily to tales that do not involve a quest, and furthermore, the same plot elements are found in non-fairy tale works. [13] Were I asked, what is a fairytale?

The tales, as illustrated by Werenskjold and Kittelsen quickly established themselves as a national treasure. While scholars quibble about exact definitions, it is commonly agreed that: fairy tales are close to the German tradition of märchen (“wonder tales”), fairy tales are a subcategory within the larger class of folk tales, fairy tale characters conform to recognizable archetypes (the youngest son, the princess, the trickster, the idiot, the wolf, the witch, the plucky youth, and so on), and while fairy tales don’t require the presence of fairies per se, they contain magical or fantastical elements. “Animal tales” (e.g., The Three Little Pigs, Chicken Little) are typically included in the category of fairy tales because their animal protagonists are really just stand-ins for human characteristics and archetypes.
