Melanie Dickerson: Snow White Retold

(May 13, 2013)
Katie Hart
Melanie Dickerson reimages fairy tales in historical settings, but in the absence of magic, spiritual warfare becomes more real. She says, “For my fairy tale retellings, I try to take the basic fairy tale and expand it, fleshing out the characters and asking myself what the story would have been like if it had actually happened. With The Fairest Beauty (Zondervan), my Snow White retelling, I wanted a heroic hero, which is missing from the Disney version. In that one, the prince is completely passive. I wanted to focus on my two main characters and their journeys, both their literal journey away from the evil duchess, and their spiritual and emotional journeys as well. They both had things they needed to deal with from their pasts.”
