Editorial Reviews


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 book other than the Bible that has truly made Western man.
P. L. Travers, The New Republic

Everyone should possess and know Grimm s Fairy Tales one of the great books of the world and no English-speaking person could do better than this edition.
Richard Adams, The New York Times Book Review

[A] splendid edition, admirably illustrated.
Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker --Wordsworth Classics --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

"Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm (1785 - 1863) and Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786 - 1859) were born in Hanau, Hesse-Kassel, Holy Roman Empire (present-day Germany). After completing school, they joined the University of Marburg where they studied law. They also grew interested in folk poetry, philology, history and began studying medieval German literature. In 1812, they published the first volume of their classic collection, with 86 folk tales, titled Kinder - und Hausmarchen (known as Children s and Household Tales in English). Unlike the romantic, poetical fairy tales, these tales were as beautiful as they were violent and frightening, presenting life as it was. This volume was criticized as it was considered unsuitable for children. The second edition of Children s and Household Tales, commonly known as Grimm s Fairy Tales, had a total of 170 tales published in three volumes. In every successive edition, which was elaborately illustrated, stories were revised, added and subtracted. The seventh edition published in 1850 had a total of 211 tales". --This text refers to the paperback edition.
