Grimm's Fairy Tale - 03 edition

Grimm`s Fairy Tale (ISBN10: 1593080565; ISBN13: 9781593080563)
ISBN13: 978-1593080563
ISBN10: 1593080565

Summary: 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. "It is hardly too much to say," remarked W. H. Auden, "that these tales rank next to the Bible in importance."
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 not as well known but no less fascinating. Rich in wisdom and imagery, these legendary stories are sure to delight both young and old.
