Wilhelm Grimm, J. &. (n.d.). Personal Collection of Short Tales compiled by Carmie. Retrieved from http://www.nook-library.com/


Description
This is a selection of the fairy tales (in English) written by Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm and Wilhelm Karl Grimm in the early 19th Century. These stories are fantastical and although aimed squarely at the flexible mind of a child which can assimilate much stranger concepts than an adult they are quite dark and occasionally brutal. The stakes can be quite high as in Rumpelstiltskin where a terrible bargain is made without due regard to possible future consequences and Tom Thumb who seems forever about to be imprisoned or sliced in two. These are moral tales and this selection features some of the less 'grim' of those tales but they are still a 1000 times more exciting and vivid than many more modern fairy tales. The Gutenberg edition from which most of these stories were read contains some delightful pictures to accompany the stories. The pictures can be viewed http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/11027 here . The exception to this is the story, Puss in Boots which is from an Andrew Lang collection which can be found http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/503 here . (summary by Jimmowatt)
