A constant shuttling back and forth


New Member
I'm studying Angela Carter's fairy-tales, and the phrase I need to translate is the following :
"Fairy-tales are a constant shuttling back and forth between oral warp and literary woof."
I don't manage to translate the expression "shuttling back and forth" in this context.
Could you help me ?
Thanks !

    "Les contes de fées oscillent constamment entre chaîne orale et trame littéraire."
    It sounds good to me, thanks !
