The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

Perhaps no other stories possess as much power to enchant, delight, and surprise as those penned by the immortal Brothers Grimm. Now, in the new, expanded third edition, renowned scholar and folklorist Jack Zipes has translated all 250 tales collected and published by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, plus twenty-nine rare tales omitted from the original German edition, as well as narratives uncovered in the brothers’ letters and papers.

Truly the most comprehensive translation to date, this critically acclaimed edition recaptures the fairy tales as the Brothers Grimm intended them to be: rich, stark, spiced with humor and violence, resonant with folklore and song.

One of the world’s experts on children’s literature, Jack Zipes is a professor of German at the University of Minnesota and is the author of numerous books on folklore and fairy tales.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my most treasured books I bought this book many years ago, and did not know I would come to treasure it as much as I do. I have read this book countless of times and have starred all my favourtie ones. I love all the grimness of some of the tales, and I love the variety of it all. Am considering on repurchasing this book, as the one I have is not in the best condition anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it I love the fairytales, though I wasn't as interested in the Christian anecdotes. It was interesting to see the interesting themes and ideas of the stories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Collection This decently sized book hold the many original writings of the Grimm brothers, which went on to inspire a lot of the children's movies we all know today. I love how they kept the authenticity of the writing style (through translation) - and an overall great book for better understanding the origin of fairy tails told nowadays.
