About this Item

250 pages. Dimensions: 9.6in. x 7.3in. x 0.9in.This is a edition of Margaret Hunts 1884 translation of the complete Brothers Grimm (i. e. , the 211-tale large edition, intended for adults and scholars). As such, the language is slightly archaic, and the text itself is lengthy, with the tradeoff that this version does contain the entire collection of stories in the forms the Grimms gave them. Thus, expect the language to be slightly different from what you might remember reading before (Little Red Riding Hood is here Little Red-Cap) and the stories may contain more crudity, violence, and (occasionally) anti-semitism than the versions most people are familiar with. Similarly, several stories normally expurgated from later editions (i. e. , The Jew Among Thorns) are present in this collection. A little context: The Brothers Grimm were the first to make a significant scholarly attempt to collect the original versions of traditional folk tales, as told by ordinary people. They didnt always adhere perfectly to that dictum -- some of the stories they collected from print sources and educated, middle-class tale-tellers, not just the common folk -- but they were in many ways the first scholarly folklorists. They were also German nationalists, and their collections were intended to help foster a sense of German national identity and German virtues. This is a great collection of the Brothers Grimms tales, all 211 of them. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
