Library Essentials Month: Disenchantments: An Anthology of Modern Fairy Tale Poetry by Wolfgang Mieder

Disenchantments: An Anthology of Modern Fairy Tale Poetry edited by Wolfgang Mieder
Disenchantments: An Anthology of Modern Fairy Tale Poetry edited by Wolfgang Mieder is one of two of today's library essentials. Today's theme is poetry if you were wondering. This book is the first collection of fairy tale poetry by various poets published in English to my knowledge. It is a wonderful collection, too, and pretty impressive considering it was compiled before the internet made researching poetry somewhat easier. All of the poetry is thought provoking, but Mieder's introduction is the wonderful resource also. I haven't seen too many articles about poetry and fairy tales like this one and it is a great overview to the genre even 25+ years later.
