"[A]ccepted as probably the world's greatest authority on the Grimms and fairy tales in general, Zipes is well qualified to redress the common perception of the brothers' published works."---Kevin Murphy, Magonia
"One of South China Morning Post’s Best Books of 2014"
"[M]agnificent . . . what makes this newly released original volume especially enchanting are the breathtaking illustrations by Romanian-born artist Andrea Dezsö."---Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
"This new translation . . . allows those without German expertise a chance to re-experience familiar stories in all their original Hemingwayesque terseness."---Michael Dirda, Washington Post
"With Disney's adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's fairy tale mash-up musical Into the Woods finding a wide, wide-smiling reception at the box office, it's the perfect time to consider the source: Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm's dark and stormy tales. . . . Andrea Dezsö's illustrations--black-and-white, woodcut-like silhouettes--add the right note of eerie timelessness to these wondrous, wondrously strange yarns."---Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Zipes puts forth expert and readable analysis and thoughts on the Grimms, and provides an excellent critical starting point to foster interest in the brothers' history and continuing legacy."---Sam Harby, Nudge Books
"What a treat these stories are, presented to readers now with [Jack Zipes'] masterful translations. The tales are, in turn, moving, brutal, and always unequivocally plainspoken, a refreshing thing to read after so many edited versions. The book also includes exquisite black-and-white cut-paper illustrations from visual artist Andrea Dezsö."---Julie Danielson, Kirkus
"Thoroughly engaging, Zipes' translations into colloquial American English breathe life into these stories. Award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö's cut-paper black and white illustrations capture the essence of this strange and enchanting world that will entice fans of mystical realms and those interested in better understanding the Grimms' enduring influence on literature."---Barbara Basbanes Richter, Fine Books & Collections
"We might wonder what the Brothers Grimm would think of [the] evolution of their oeuvre, which was originally, quite frankly, pretty grim. . . . Consider these examples, from [this] English translation of the first edition by the Brothers Grimm – and perhaps don’t share them with your children at bedtime."---Victoria Marston, Country Life Magazine --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
From the Inside Flap
"A massive and brilliant accomplishment--the first English translation of the original Grimm brothers' fairy tales. The plain telling is that much more forceful for its simplicity and directness, particularly in scenes of naked self-concern and brutality. Hate, spite, love, magic, all self-evident, heartbreaking, delightful. I will return to this book over and over, no doubt about it."--Donna Jo Napoli, author ofThe Wager
"For a long time, Jack Zipes has explored fairy tale territory with an unstoppable love and prodigious energy. Now, in this complete translation of the first two editions of the Grimms' famous tales, Zipes has redrawn the map we thought we knew, and the Brothers' stories are made wonderfully strange again. This new and indispensable volume is beautifully presented."--Marina Warner, author ofStranger Magic: Charmed States and the Arabian Nights
"This complete, unexpurgated, and insightfully annotated English-language edition of the Grimms tales keeps readers anchored in the timeless world of the fairy tale. It will be treasured by all lovers of stories. Irresistible and unputdownable."--Shelley Frisch, translator of Kafka: The Years of Insight
"This English translation of the landmark first edition of Grimms folk and fairy tales makes available a very important text to everyone with an interest in these stories."--Donald Haase, Wayne State University
"Jack Zipess translations of the 156 tales in this significant edition are truly exquisite."--Ulrich C. Knoepflmacher, author ofVentures into Childland: Victorians, Fairy Tales, and Femininity--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
