Editorial Review

Product Description
The tales gathered by the Grimm brothers are at once familiar, fantastic, and frightening. They seem to belong to no time, or to some distant feudal age of fairytale imagining. Grand palaces, humble cottages, and the forest full of menace are their settings; and they are peopled by kings and princesses, witches and robbers, millers and golden birds, stepmothers and talking frogs.

Regarded from their inception either as simple nursery stories or as raw material for the folklorist, the tales were in fact compositions, collected from literate tellers and shaped into a distinctive kind of literature. This new translation mirrors the apparent artlessness of the Grimms, and fully represents the range of less well-known fables, morality tales, and comic stories as well as the classic tales. It takes the stories back to their roots in German Romanticism and includes variant stories and tales that were deemed unsuitable for children. In her fascinating Introduction, Joyce Crick explores their origins, and their literary evolution at the hands of the Grimms. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun!
In the introduction, Joyce Crick says the purpose of this edition of Selected Tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm is to "give the book back to the authors" by which she means Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. The Grimm's collected these tales at a place and time that basically made them the first people in the "modern" era to do such a thing. Of course, their product, their "Tales" had an after life that spawned hundreds of years of children's literature in Germany and the US, and eventually became the substantial basis for all of the early Disney smash hits, more or less.Say what you want about Walt Disney being a Nazi, but no one who has been to Salzburg can deny the similarity.

The Grimms, being who they were,writing when they were, didn't provide any context, just the tales.However, over time they did edit the selection of Tales, taking out some of the more gruesome tales and editing some of the remaining tales.This edition does a good job of running through those differences.

Although I had a clear idea that the original Grimm's tales were much darker then the American/Disney versions, until I read this recentely published book (2009 in America, 2008 UK?) I had never actually READ any of the tales.I would have liked more info about the pre-Christian elements, but that was beyond the scope of the edition.Maybe next time...

4-0 out of 5 stars A decent collection of these famous stories
This book does not contain all of the Grimms' stories, but it does include a wide selection (sixtyish) of the most famous and most interesting tales.There were many more stories, of course, but the editor of this edition has chosen some of the most well-known and representative ones.In addition, there are many tales included that aren't necessarily famous but are just as good as the familiar ones.

The book opens with an interesting introduction, which shows how the Grimms were the first to seriously record folk wonder tales in a literary form, putting them in good prose but still maintaining respect for the original stories.(The earlier French writers drew on folktales, but altered them into tales of courtly intrigue, and sometimes told them in a snickering, sarcastic style.)Then, of course, come the tales themselves, well-written and yet hauntingly simple.

Note:This is an edition for the grown-ups. No illustrations.Visually, it looks like a textbook rather than a book of fairy tales.I do need to buy a pretty edition someday, to pass on to my hypothetical kids.:) ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great translation - not so great book quality
While this is certainly not a "coffee table" quality book, the translation is true to form.
I teach gifted children (3rd through 5th) and they love to read and hear the "old words". I use this book in a unit I teach on Fairy Tales. We read a story and then watch the pretty Disney version. We then compare and contrast the differences and similarities.
They are often shocked and sometimes thrilled - especially the boys who thought fairy tales were for girls - at the darker aspects of the original versions.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Must Have!
The stories may not always have happy endings, but that's why I love it!It's always interesting to read the writing styles of yesteryear, and I haven't been able to put this book down since it arrived!

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect
What has happened to the illustrations these days? I had this book as a child and the pictures in it where so much better. But the stories are the same, so - great book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Big book
Alot of the other customers are right, I just got the book and the pages are very very thin and the book itself probably wont last long if you dont take care of it.. It is however alot pigger than I thought. And one person said the stories dont make sense from the translations, thats not true. i would recomend this book if you cannot find it else where.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!Beautiful!! (...and then some!)
This book is not only asthetically pleasing, with its richly colored and textured cover and gilt pages; but each and every story reflects the wonder and imagination that draws us all to fairy tales....

Inside the Grimm's are at their finest, and pulling no punches. This may be where Disney found Cinderella, Snow White and so on - but they are NOT the watered down versions we have seen in cartoons. Must be appreciated for the purity of the stories, NOT recommended if you are looking for warm, fuzzy, cute-sy tales for the babes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Go Into the Woods Without It
THE POETS GRIMM is an essential addition to the collection of anyone who grew up with fairy tales - that is, everyone in America who ever opened a storybook that began "Once upon a time. . ." or watched a Disney movie that opened with a princess tortured by her evil stepmother. Here are the stories from the Grimm brothers collections that terrified and delighted us as children, now revisited with adult distance, wisdom, and humor.Ably edited by Jeanne Marie Beaumont and Claudia Carlson, THE POETS GRIMM embraces the breadth of poetry in English in the 20th century, from our most recent poet laureate, Louise Glück, to writers like Terri Windling and Jane Yolen, best known for their work in contemporary fantasy and science fiction.Anne Sexton's important poem, "Twelve Dancing Princesses," from her groundbreaking collection TRANSFORMATIONS, is included, as is an intensely moving poem by Amy Lowell from 1912, which strikes a surprisingly contemporary note.

A deep sympathy for the much maligned usual suspects, wolves and witches, underlies the entire volume, and frankly, if I were Prince Charming, I'd have a call in to my lawyer about a possible libel suit.Perhaps most American of all the Grimm interpretations found here is Tim Siebles' "What Bugs Bunny said to Red Riding Hood," which alone is worth the price of the entire collection.

Reading the poems in this collection bathes the old tales in a new and revelatory light;most telling of all perhaps are the poems which offer new versions of the detailed and mysterious marching orders given to every fairy tale hero or heroine who set off, willingly or not, on a quest. Neil Gaiman's "Instructions," in this vein, makes wonderful new sense of these ever-puzzling rules. Through these poems we see our own childhoods recast, and the clamor of impossibly conflicting childhood directives we all received invoked and examined.

The Poets Grimm offers a wonderful snapshot of poetry of the last half of the last century, taken through an enchanted lens, and I highly recommend it to anyone who ever felt a little cheated by the words, "And they lived happily ever after."

5-0 out of 5 stars Grimms in Verse
While this collection might appear gimmicky to some, a quick persusal of the table of contents will show that many respected poets have used fairy tale motifs in their work.Beaumont and Carlson have gathered numerous poems from a wide range of poets that reflect the enduring themes and characters we inherited through the work of the Brothers Grimm.The usual suspects, such as Anne Sexton, are here but so are some lesser known poets.The anthology is strong and represents many well-known fairy tales along with a few that are lesser known by the general public.The book is recommended for libraries and classrooms in which poetry and/or fairy tales are taught. It also makes great armchair reading for anyone interested in new interpretations of familiar stories. ... Read more
