Review
/* Starred Review */ Tatar (languages & literature, Harvard) presents her translations of 40 folktales collected by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, taking care to balance male and female protagonists. modern favorites like "Cinderella" and "Rapunzel" stand side by side with more obscure stories, such as "How the Children Played Butcher with Each Other" (which is as gruesome as the title implies). The multiple versions/variations given for each story include those that date back long before the Grimm Brothers time. While Jack Zipes's The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm includes many more stories, Tatar's clear and informative commentary on the many theories regarding the origins, meaning, and detail of the selected stories makes this an important addition to the canon. Adding extra interest and depth are 150 illustrations (many in color) by L. Leslie Brooke, Arthur Rackham, Wanda Gág, and others. An outstanding addition to folklore, children's literature, and Germanic studies collections; also recommended for any collection of traditional folk and fairy tales.—Mary Morgan Smith, Northland P.L., Pittsburgh --Mary Morgan Smith (Reviewed September 1, 2004) (Library Journal, vol 129, issue 14, p149)
