New Book: The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang edited by Jack Zipes

The Golden Age of Folk and Fairy Tales: From the Brothers Grimm to Andrew Lang edited by Jack Zipes was released back in October. I thought I had already posted about it, but I hadn't! This is important because it is the new prize in this month's giveaway which I will be posting about today, too.

This new book acts as sort of a companion book to Zipes' The Great Fairy Tale Tradition: From Straparola and Basile to the Brothers Grimm (Norton Critical Editions). Like that book, Golden Age offers collections of tales under themes, this time with a focus of tales collected during the Golden Age of folklore. So it's historical range isn't as wide as in The Great Fairy Tale Tradition, but the content is organized in a similar way and offers up some lesser known tales. I have included the lengthy table of contents below the book description.

In other words, it's a great addition to your personal library. Better yet for those on a budget, it's a great price, too.

Book description:

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, attitudes toward history and national identity fostered a "romantic" rediscovery of folk and fairy tales. This is the period of the Golden Age of folk and fairy tales, when European folklorists sought to understand and redefine the present through the common tales of the past, and long neglected stories became recognized as cultural treasures.

In this rich collection, distinguished expert of fairy tales Jack Zipes continues his lifelong exploration of the story-telling tradition with a focus on the Golden Age. Included are one hundred eighty-two tales--many available in English for the first time--grouped into eighteen tale types. Zipes provides an engaging general Introduction that discusses the folk and fairy tale tradition, the impact of the Brothers Grimm, and the significance of categorizing tales into various types.

Short introductions to each tale type that discuss its history, characteristics, and variants provide readers with important background information.

Also included are annotations, short biographies of folklorists of the period, and a substantial bibliography.

Eighteen original art works by students of the art department of Anglia Ruskin University not only illustrate the eighteen tale types, but also provide delightful--and sometimes astonishing--21st-century artistic interpretations of them.
