For readers of all ages, two hundred and ten tales of the Brothers Grimm, including "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Snow White," and "Hansel and Gretel," translated by Ralph Manheim, the highly acclaimed and prize-winning translator. Manheim has rediscovered in the original German Grimms’ editions of the tales the unadorned, direct rhythm of the oral form in which they were first recorded. He has retained their ageless magic and mythology and restored the extraordinary vitality and wit, the acute perceptions of human strength and facility mirrored in the facets of these small gems.

From the Publisher:

Ralph Manheim, the highly acclaimed and prize-winning translator, has rediscovered in the original German editions of the Grimms' works the unadorned, direct rhythm of the oral form in which they were first recorded.

About the Author:

Ralph Manheim was a highly acclaimed, prize-winning translator of major German and French works, including books by Hitler, Proust, Brecht, and Grass. Mr. Manheim won a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation "genius" award in 1983. He also won honors from PEN, a National Book Award, a prize from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He died in 1992 at the age of 85.
 
The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, philologists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the 19th century. They were among the best-known storytellers of folk tales, and popularized stories such as “Cindrella,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Rapunzel,” “Sleeping Beauty,” and “Snow White.”
