Tales where the strong are monsters and the weak are “victims”...The fear we feel even only by listening to these tales... Catherine insists on reading the tale of Blue Beard to her older sister, even though she is afraid to even read it. She wants to confront and change her fear as well as the tale. Blue Beard becomes a tale Catherine rewrites as she reads it. According to the tale all the women previously married to Blue Beard living in an enormous castle, have disappeared. Everyone talks about Blue Beard killing the women he married. Catherine who wanted to get into that castle by marrying Blue Beard was aware of the danger. She was aware of the limits drawn for her and the price she would pay if she didn’t obey... But she couldn’t help go beyond the limits taking advantage of solidarity. A feminist version of the 17th century tale written by Charles Perrault.

I walk over rocks hot as iron under the September sun. I can make out a few lines in the distance, and a few cracked rocks, but apart from those, not a single tree, not one plant. I have walked until I reached this hill, in the trail of the letter that hurled me once again to my home town...
