Synopsis: In the 1850s, Franz Xaver von Schnwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schnwerth's work was lost-until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manuscripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive. Now, for the first time, Schnwerth's lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than seventy stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre.
About the Author: Erika Eichenseer is the director of the Franz Xaver von Schnwerth Society. She is also a poet and essayist, who has been published in Schnere Heimat, Nordgau-Festschrift, Charivari, and Literatur in Bayern. Erika lives in Germany.
