Maple Press was kind enough to send me a copy of the book, in exchange of an honest review. Last year, a wrote a huge research paper on Grimm’s Snow White, and Red Riding Hood explaining the latent meaning in both the “cautionary tales”. For that, I used the Pantheon book which was more detailed and had a variety of foot notes and references. However, not everyone would want to review the stories one by one, or really get to the bottom of all the tales. For general reading I would highly suggest the Maple Press publication. It is not dense, and is very fluid in terms of translation and writing. I read sixteen stories out of the sixty two. They have the entire important, well know stories and then a few others that I forgot I even had read before. I chose the sixteen from across the index because chronological reading is not a personal favourite.
Briar Rose, Rapunzel, Snow White and Red Rose, are more known and hence not many pages have been devoted to introduce characters. They keep it precise, and easily readable so that the known stories don’t bore you.
There were rare punctuation errors, and the pages were light. The entire book is three hndred and fifty two pages long. The original compilation was much larger, however Maple Press has selected stories from the second edition as the stories are a bit happier, less sensual and more fantastical. The stories are handpicked, to fit this anthology, and not all of them are included, I believe.
This is perfect to gift young children, or even for teenagers to read because it really isn’t that hard to grasp. Plus the language and syntax is very direct, there are no fancy words, or dialogues like the middle ages. Would highly recommend to keep in your collection.
