For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children--and adults--learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, HAnsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging. With black-and-white drawings throughout Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library

Review quote

"Among the few indispensable, common-property books upon which Western culture can be founded . . . It will be a mistake if this volume is merely bought for a child; it should be, first and foremost, an educational 'must' for adults." -W. H. Auden, "The New York Times" "Here it is, clear and fine and solid, beautifully and passionately illustrated, this one book-other than the Bible-that has truly made Western man." -P. L. Travers, "The New Republic" "Everyone should possess and know Grimm's Fairy Tales-one of the great books of the world-and no English-speaking person could do better than this edition." -Richard Adams, "The New York Times Book Review" "[A] splendid edition, admirably illustrated." -Edmund Wilson, "The New Yorker"
