Overview

The Grimm Reader: The Classic Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Maria Tatar

The Grimm Reader, featuring landmark introductions by A. S. Byatt and Maria Tatar, celebrates the radiant cultural legacy of stories collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm-tales that have enchanted children and adults alike for generations. Even after two hundred years, the tales gathered by the Grimms continue to have an extraordinary global reach. Their scenes of unsparing savagery and jaw-dropping beauty remind us that fairy tales, for all their simplicity, have the power to draw us into a world of words and to transform us as we read. Containing some of the most enduring tales found in world literature, this collection will introduce readers to the sorcery of the stories collected by the Brothers Grimm.
