Summary:
"Jack Zipes holds that the Grimms collected their tales from the oral traditions of peasants. This is simply not so. Rather, the Grimms took most of their tales from literary sources, rewriting them again and again. These tales are based on a great literary tradition, which this volume documents. The fairy tales - 116 in all - are grouped thematically and are accompanied by detailed introductions and annotations."  Read more...
