Celebrate the 200th birthday of the Brothers Grimm stories with this lavish volume now richly expanded for a new generation.
From the Publisher:
Publication of the Grimms' Children's Stories and Household Tales in 1812 brought the great European oral folk tradition into print for the first time. The Annotated Brothers Grimm returns in a deluxe and augmented 200th-anniversary edition commemorating that landmark event. Adding to such favorites as ?Cinderella,? ?Little Red Riding Hood,? ?Snow White,? and ?Rapunzel,? Maria Tatar includes six new entries, among them ?Four Clever Brothers,? ?The Water of Life,? ?The White Snake,? and ?The Old Man and His Grandson.? The expanded edition features an enhanced selection of illustrations, many in color, by legendary artists such as George Cruikshank and Arthur Rackham; annotations that explore the historical origins, cultural context, and psychological effects of the tales; and a biographical essay on Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. A perennial favorite in the acclaimed Norton Annotated series, this magnificent volume will draw both children and adults into the enchanting world of fairy tales.
Annotation:
This in-depth study of the works created by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm puts such well-known tales as "Little Red Riding Hood," "Rapunzel," and "Snow White" in a new context by analyzing their cultural, historical, and psychological aspects. Concentrating on 40 stories written by the Grimm brothers, this collection features full translations of a number of tales rarely published in their complete forms--stories often deemed too harsh for children because they deal with such topics as cannibalism and the death of children. Also included is a biographical essay on Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Color and B&W illustrations, by such artists as George Cruikshank and Arthur Rackham, accompany the text.
Author Bio
A. S. Byatt
Antonia Susan Byatt was born in Sheffield, a Yorkshire steel town, where she led what she describes as an isolated childhood and adolescence despite the presence of three siblings. Her mother was educated at Cambridge but gave up teaching to raise her family--a choice she was bitter about. Her attitude strongly affected Antonia, who also went to Cambridge. She also married young and had four children; she has been married twice, and her only son was killed by a drunk driver in 1970. She maintains residences in London and in the south of France. Her present husband, Peter Duffy, is an investment analyst. Her sister is the novelist Margaret Drabble; a natural rivalry between the two of them passed with the years. Known as a "Victorian postmodernist," Byatt writes meaty, erudite, old-fashioned novels; ANGELS AND INSECTS was made into a film in 1995.

Jacob Grimm is famous for the fairy tales he wrote with his brother Wilhelm. Both brothers attended the University of Marburg to study law, but their love of folklore and desire to keep ancient stories alive led them to produce collections of stories. Their first collection of tales was produced in 1812, but was not written for children. A children's edition of folk and fairy tales was published in 1814 and included such stories as "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstilskin", and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses". The brothers lived together throughout their lives. In 1825, Wilhelm married Dorothea Wild--the couple had five children and Jacob was like a second father to them. There is a memorial to the two brothers in Hanau, Germany.
