9780099511441: The Complete Fairy Tales (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JACK ZIPES

Wolves and grandmothers, ugly sisters, a house made of bread, a goose made of gold...the folk tales collected by the Grimm brothers created an astonishingly influential imaginative world. However, this is also a world where a woman serves her stepson up in a stew, a man marries a snake, a princess sleeps with a frog, and an evil queen dances to death in a pair of burning shoes. Violent, funny, disturbing, wise and sometimes beautiful, these stories have intrigued children, adults, scholars, psychologists and artists for centuries.

The only complete edition available of the most famous collection of fairy tales ever published, this collection features the 279 stories in an acclaimed, modern, unexpurgated translation.

Review:

"It is hardly too much to say that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance" (W.H. Auden)

"The stories, and the figures themselves, have immense vitality, partly because no punches are pulled, and also because no emotion is unrepresented" (Margaret Atwood)

"Everyone should possess and know Grimm's Fairy Tales - one of the great books of the world" (Richard Adams New York Times Book Review)

"Clearly the text of choice for any reader...Zipes' edition deserves to become the standard translation" (German Quarterly)

"The Brother's Grimm were responsible for these fairytales that informed my life and made it as interesting, or as confused, or as wondrous as it is...they scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and they also gave me some of the most pleasure in life" (Terry Gilliam)

Book Description:

'In oldentimes, when wishing still helped, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful...' 'The Frog King', Complete Fairy Tales
