I have already noted this dilemma in my critical discussion of the myths that Bruno Bettelheim irresponsibly created and spread about fairy tales as do many critics who use children and their readings as pawns in political and social conflicts. In contrast to the first wave of tale writing, linked to the values of rationalism and the integration of literature and society, the second and third phases, influenced by Enlightenment philosophies, challenged those ideals. These salons were regular gatherings hosted by prominent aristocratic women, where women and men could gather together to discuss the issues of the day.
