  • Classic Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm

    Jacob Grimm

    Product Code: BTOVI
    Paperback
    Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were German academics who collected and published folklore during the 19th century. Many of the tales they wrote down had previously only been passed down orally. The first collection of their fairy tales was published in 1812 to a lukewarm reception as they were not considered suitable for children. Over the next 45 years they were to be rewritten, expanded upon and sanitized seven times. There were originally around 150 stories, but now they are credited with having penned over 200. Their tales will be forever immortalised in popular culture helped in no small way by a string of Walt Disney films.

  • The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

    Jacob Grimm

    Product Code: AUWVP
    Paperback
    When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezso. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold--heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique--they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.
