This paper analyses seven fairy tales of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić which are not part of the Priče iz davnine (Croatian Tales of Long Ago) compilation. Four of these were published in magazines in the author’s lifetime, while three remained manuscripts. Some of the fairy tales saw publication following the author’s death in the book Basne i bajke (Fables and Fairy Tales) in 1943 by the Croatian Publishing and Bibliographic Institute, as well as a more recent edition of the book in 1993; however, there has been an almost universal lack of critical and literary-historical reception. The paper provides a context for these fairy tales within the author’s literary
oeuvre, and examines the concepts and notions of the child which they contain. The paper attempts to define a discourse relation between the author’s concept of the fairy tale and the notion of a child, as well as voice certain common poetic, particularly neo-romantic, beliefs in the formation of the narrative space of fairy tales.
