Item Description...
"Grimm's Fairy Tales," by Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, is part of the "Barnes & Noble Classics"" "series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics"
  • All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. With the words "Once upon a time," the Brothers Grimm transport readers to a timeless realm where witches, giants, princesses, kings, fairies, goblins, and wizards fall in love, try to get rich, quarrel with their neighbors, and have magical adventures of all kinds--and in the process reveal essential truths about human nature. When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore--and the hard life of European peasants was reflected in the tales they discovered. However, once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, "Grimm's Fairy Tales" is now beloved the world over. This collection of more than 120 of the Grimms' best tales includes such classics as "Cinderella," "Snow White," "Hansel and Grethel," "Rapunzel," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Little Red Riding Hood," and "The Frog Prince," as well as others that are no less delightful. Elizabeth Dalton is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Barnard College. She has published fiction and criticism in "The New Yorker," "Partisan Review," "Commentary," and "The New York Times Book Review."

    Reviews - What do our customers think?
    Once upon a time...  Jan 27, 2006
    Unlike Hans Christian Anderson, the Brothers Grimm did not invent new fairy tales but collected old ones, with the intention of preserving the oral tradition of the German peasantry. Whether in fact they fulfilled that intention has been questioned. Their tales do afford a glimpse of a world of castles and forests, nobles and peasants, superstitious beliefs and primitive practices that suggest origins at least as old as feudal Europe, and often much older. Some of the tales have been traced back through the centuries by way of earlier versions until they disappear into prehistoric times.
