When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

1910 bis 1915: Dies sind die Jahre, in denen sich der junge, ungebundene, beeinflussbare Kafka verwandelt in den verantwortungsbewussten Beamten und zugleich in den Meister des präzisen Alptraums und des ›kafkaesken‹ Humors. In kürzester Frist entstehen ›Das Urteil‹, ›Die Verwandlung‹, ›Der Verschollene‹ und ›Der Process‹, und in rascher Folge werden alle Weichen gestellt, die Kafkas weiteren Weg bis zum Ende bestimmen werden: die Begegnung mit dem religiösen Judentum, die ersten Schritte in die Öffentlichkeit, die Katastrophe des Kriegsausbruchs und vor allem die verzweifelt umkämpfte und dann doch scheiternde Beziehung zu Felice Bauer. Es sind Jahre beispielloser Intensität: das Zentrum von Kafkas Existenz. Stachs Schilderung ist atmosphärisch dicht und bietet Panoramablicke über Kafkas Welt ebenso wie Nahaufnahmen aus seinem Alltag, wobei auch neueste, bisher unveröffentlichte Forschungsergebnisse aufgenommen werden. Die bildhafte Erzählweise, die den Leser alle Entscheidungssituationen fast filmisch miterleben lässt, setzt neue Maßstäbe in der deutschsprachigen Biographik.

Dunkel und gespenstisch sind Edgar Allen Poes schaurige Geschichten, die ganz ohne das übliche Repertoire des Schaurigen, ohne Geister und Gespenster, auskommen.

In Grimm Legacies, esteemed literary scholar Jack Zipes explores the legacy of the Brothers Grimm in Europe and North America, from the nineteenth century to the present. Zipes reveals how the Grimms came to play a pivotal and unusual role in the evolution of Western folklore and in the history of the most significant cultural genre in the world—the fairy tale. Folklorists Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm sought to discover and preserve a rich abundance of stories emanating from an oral tradition, and encouraged friends, colleagues, and strangers to gather and share these tales. As a result, hundreds of thousands of wonderful folk and fairy tales poured into books throughout Europe and have kept coming. Zipes looks at the transformation of the Grimms' tales into children's literature, the Americanization of the tales, the "Grimm" aspects of contemporary tales, and the tales' utopian impulses. He shows that the Grimms were not the first scholars to turn their attention to folk tales, but were vital in expanding readership and setting the high standards for folk-tale collecting that continue through the current era. Zipes concludes with a look at contemporary adaptations of the tales and raises questions about authenticity, target audience, and consumerism. With erudition and verve, Grimm Legacies examines the lasting universal influence of two brothers and their collected tales on today's storytelling world.

The stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have become part of the way children—and adults—learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of the more than two hundred enchanting characters included in this volume. The tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.
