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.

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories. The Blue Fairy Book assembled a wide range of tales, with seven from the Brothers Grimm, five from Madame d'Aulnoy, three from the Arabian Nights, and four Norse stories, among other sources.

This volume of 28 Swedish fairy-tales represents a careful choice of the best examples of Swedish lore and tales. Infused with the Swedish culture, they are the most colorful and entertaining tales to be found, for the fairy-tales of Scandinavia, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, have a distinct local color of their own. Herein you will find 28 children’s stories like the delightful "Lasse, My Thrall", and "The Princess and the Glass Mountain." Of course there are stories of princesses being rescued from ogres and giants like in the story of “Silverwhite And Lillwacker.” There are also stories of the low-born lad who makes good and becomes a king, like that of “The Mount Of The Golden Queen.” But you can’t have a book of tales from the far Northern realms without a story about a “giant, troll and werewolf”, for this is also the land of Beowulf the Vikings. We could carry on waxing lyrical for a lot longer but will leave the discovery of these wonderfully, magical tales to you and your kin. As such, you are invited to download and read this enchanting volumes of Swedish folk and fairy lore.
