The Classic Fairy Tales - Maria M. Tatar

We’ve all heard of Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, and Hansel and Gretel; but have you heard of Goldflower, Donkeyskin or The Juniper Tree? Tatar’s amazing collection of Classic Fairy Tales can be read as a collection of bedtime stories or as a scholarly work that analyzes folktales from around the world. The 44 stories selected fall into 6 categories and range in time from the 5th century to the present day. Each tale begins with a short analysis followed by 4 or 5 versions from different places and periods. The book ends with a superb collection of essays dealing with the evolution and meaning of folktales from Bruno Bettelheim, Aarne and Thompson, and many more.
