The Classic Fairy Tales (Second Edition) (Norton Critical Editions) Books Pdf File

Based on the tales of the Brothers Grimm, this popular version of a collection of classic stories is not only beautifully illustrated, but also includes a historically important edition of 1828, which includes illustrations by John Calcott Horsley and Charles Lennox-Browne. At the height of the Opie and Koeppen school of analysis, Grimm’s tales were interpreted as symbolically and metaphorically themed. But once the modern reader moved beyond an Oedipal fascination with the obsessions of the dominant male, it was clear that the stories were nothing less than good old-fashioned entertainments that had endured over the years and varied greatly from culture to culture. M. Tatar’s translation of the first two editions and her analysis make this classic book a valuable addition to the library of any student of fairy tales.

This important edition of The Classic Fairy Tales, translated by Maria Tatar with an introduction and analysis by Jack Zipes, is the essential tool for advanced students of fairy tales. New lines and symbols, along with an elaborate apparatus of chapters, appendices, and numbers, have complicated the scholarly study of these tales.

The Norton Critical Edition and the other books in the Norton Classics Series represent the most modern treatments of some of the most significant and influential works in literary criticism. They reveal an old text in new and enlightening ways. This critical edition will be a wonderful resource for the critical reader.

This is the definitive edition of The Classic Fairy Tales, in two separate editions. In the first edition, 1,500 reprints of the classic tales, in the form of eleven chapters, can be found. In the second edition, there is no chapter outline, but an entire volume of classic fairy tales. (A third edition is a work in progress.) Each tale is reprinted in this volume, accompanied by a very thorough and detailed study by Jack Zipes. Zipes maps out the features of the tale, in order, and offers suggestions about the story as it unfolds. This is the definitive text, and has become the standard. There are also many illuminating illustrations, after photographs of every stop of the Grimms’ journey taken by Michael Käppel on his own journey to translate.
There is a good index and a comprehensive bibliography.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I just started reading Moby Dick again and looking for old books like that is so great when you don’t have much money to spend and don’t have time to search. Thank you so much for the kind words.
Of course, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if the styles of the texts in the Critical Editions follow this same pattern. But we’re looking for inspiration, not Platonic originals, so we shouldn’t get too hung up on the idea of the origin of any style, simply the time in which it was used and its use. And while I love the style of this series, and while it is comforting to find authors in common with Milton, as soon as I notice that, I have to wonder about the logic of the connection. Everyone who has a head on their shoulders loves and appreciates Milton and the authors of the great age, but to equate ancient and modern styles is to ignore the far greater effect of time. There are so many styles and different periods that stratum of time has a far greater effect on styles than any ancient and modern connection.
