Bargain Book: Reception of Grimm's Fairy Tales: Responses, Reactions, Revisions edited by Donald P. Haase

For 15 more copies, Reception of Grimm's Fairy Tales: Responses, Reactions, Revisions edited by Donald P. Haase is bargain priced in PAPER not EBOOK for $8.78. I discovered this today when I was composing another post that is forthcoming and had to share. This is a great price for a great book. It is out of print, so getting brand new used copies for a used price is a grand thing.

This book is an important volume in reading about how the Grimms have been used and interpreted. The scope is definitely Western culture--European and U.S.--but it is a fine book to add to your fairy tale library for a GREAT price.

Book description:

The Reception of Grimms' Fairy Tales brings together premier scholars of the fairy tale, including Ruth B. Bottigheimer, Maria Tatar, and Jack Zipes, with acclaimed creative writers such as Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Jane Yolen, and award-winning artist Trina Schart Hyman. The essays address the reception of the Grimms' texts by their readers; the dynamics between Grimms' collection and its earliest audiences; and aspects of the literary, philosophical, creative, and oral reception of the tales, illuminating how writers, philosophers, artists, and storytellers have responded to, reacted to, and revised the stories, thus shedding light on the ways in which past and contemporary transmitters of culture have understood and passed on the Grimms' tales.
