Even after two hundred years, their scenes of unsparing savagery and jaw-dropping beauty remind us that fairy tales, in all their simplicity, have the power to change us. Tatar's preface provides readers with the context to understand what these stories meant and their contemporary resonance. With some of the most famous stories in world literature, fans of all ages will be drawn to this elegant and accessible collection. Introduction is by A.S. Byatt.
