LUZ, Anna Maria Hecker  and  ZANETTI, Lou. The fairy tale and modern paternity. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2003, vol.56, n.3, pp.292-297. ISSN 0034-7167.

The study presents the interpretation of a hospital delivery from the male's perspective, according to the cultural experiences of the individual, making available the simultaneous discovery of that which conceals and brings out this phenomenon. In seeking answers to the hidden meanings of the paternity process, it points to a literary path of meaning and art: the allegory. The account of the material analyzed is presented in the form of a seemingly ingenuous narrative-a fairy tale-with a symbolic nature and a moral backdrop, using the fable of Charles Perreaut entitled "Little Red Ridding Hood". From this other view, the beauty of the modern world is captured, offering a key for interpretations of the human realities.

Keywords : father; paternity; fairy tale.
