Book Description
For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way childrenand adultslearn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, H?nsel 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.
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 bookother than the Biblethat has truly made Western man.
