Review: The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of The Brothers Grimm

The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm: The Complete First Edition - Wilhelm Grimm, Jacob Grimm

A great book. The translation is modern and accessible without loosing the original spirit of the tales. (The rhyming spells etc. might sound a bit odd at times but then it is hard to translate rhymes). Additionally there is an extensive introduction about the background of the brothers and the fairy-tale collection that offers a lot of insight in the process of collecting and writing down the tales.

The book is perfect, no matter if you just want to read the tales (yourself or to somebody) or if you're interested in fairy-tales in general and want to learn more about them (in that case the book also has an extensive bibliography for further reading but it's mostly German)
