Selected Tales

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm
Joyce Crick

Oxford World's Classics Hardback Collection

  • An original translation of Grimms' tales, including animal fables, tall tales, comic peasant stories, and religious magic and morality tales.
  • Alongside some seventy-nine tales, including all the best-known fairy tales, this edition includes earlier versions of some stories, as well as stories removed after the first edition.
  • Prize-winning translatorJoyce Crick's introduction places the work of the Grimms in the literary and historical context of German Romanticism, and demonstrates how the brothers adapted the tales which were not necessarily from the peasant sources they implied.
  • Includes Wilhelm Grimm's preface to the second edition (1819) in which he described their methods of collecting and admitted their intervention.
