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. Book jacket.
Maria Tatar chairs the program in folklore and mythology at Harvard University. She is the author of Enchanted Hunters: The Power of Stories in Childhood, The Annotated Brothers Grimm, and The Annotated Hans Christian Andersen.
