The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm: The Complete First Edition | Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm
When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

This was excellent! Zipes‘ intro set me up perfectly and the stories were so deliciously creepy. Yep, I‘m a weirdo. I can‘t wait to read the later version all the way through to compare! #BackpackEurope

Finally sitting down for a thorough reading of Grimm!

I‘m reading the Zipes translation of an earlier edition, which I‘ve tagged. I‘m excited to see the differences between what the Grimms 1st published and the later edition we‘re all familiar with. #BackpackEurope

Fascinating, horrifying, surreal as only folktales can be.

Becoming a consultant on human rights and international relations can be a little challenging and messy. I finished a contract in November, started a free-lance gig in December and today I started an office job. For the next months I will be working two jobs at the same time. I am little worried that it will significantly cut my reading time hours. So at least I will try to make the most of my commute time and listen to more audiobooks

After I read a book with an incredibly sad ending, I return to an old stand-by: The Lady and the Lion from the Brothers Grimm. A more complicated and interesting Beauty and the Beast.

This is one scary book. Not all of it, but some of it is. I'm pretty sure parents will not be too thrilled to know what the original stories are actually about. Still, a very interesting read.
