Editorial Reviews

Review

• Offers a richer, more complex selection of oral and literary tales than the better known collection of German tales by the Grimm brothers

• Traces these wise and witty tales from their origin in the Orient and chronicles the changes that occurred as they were retold through the centuries



• The first English translations of Italian folktales, now available after more than a century of neglect

• Critical analysis and notes by the original editor, 19th-century folklorist Thomas Crane

Book Description

In the mid-19th century, at a time when stories told by common folk were considered worthless superstitions, Thomas Frederick Crane began to gather and study Italian popular tales—fairy stories, nursery tales, and jests. Today his great collection, Italian Popular TaleS≪/I>, is even more important than it was a century ago.

You probably haven't heard of most of these, but that doesn't mean that they're not fun and interesting stories. Definitely worth checking out sometime.
