Description

A beautifully illustrated, lyrically translated collection of the fables that have enchanted children and adults for nearly two centuries. 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): the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have long been part of the way children--and adults--learn about the vagaries of the real world. Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library, this elegant edition includes nearly two hundred stories as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.show more

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 Yorkershow more
