Review:

A new translation of all the Grimm folktales into English is a first-rate event not only for professional folklorists but for the large public who read folktales entirely for pleasure. The last good translation, that of Margaret Hunt, appeared in 1884 and has long been out of print.” Journal of English and Ger­manic Philology.

 

 



  Now we can greet a new translation which presents tales with literal faithfulness. How does it differ from Hunt’s translation? The language in the Magoun ­Krappe translation is modern and colloquial as well as sim­pler.” Western Folklore.



  The translators have succeeded not only in finding the right English word for the German, but in catching the simple, colloquial style of the original.” Books Abroad
