At 79 y/o and remember this book vividly from childhood. 8 mai 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Belle reliure
A wonderful collection of tales for children, however, the edition available from amazon does not have the wonderful illustrations which did so much to enhance the stories. Try to get the old version.

Six wondrous tales from Greek mythology, marred by inferior binding and paper quality 17 mars 2013
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
My first Calla Edition was Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe. It is a work of extraordinary beauty and I've been collecting the various titles issued by Calla Editions since. Here's what I've noted: The quality of each Calla Edition up to 2011 is superior in terms of binding, paper quality, the illustrations, and content. These Calla Editions are a must-have in every collector's library and will bring great pleasure to bibliophiles. The Calla Editions printed in and prior to 2011 were printed in the United States and are of stellar quality, whereas those printed in 2012 onwards were manufactured in China, and the change in quality is noticeable - the bindings look and feel cheap, and do not hold up well (I own two of these inferior Calla Editions), the paper is thick yet not as creamy or smooth like the previous editions, and the illustrations do not feel glossy either. So buyers of the later (2012 and after) editions might want to be aware of this.

The binding on this title "Tanglewood Tales" is inferior. It scuffs easily and does not have the glossy leather like finish of previous Calla editions. Unlike Calla editions of 2011 and earlier, the paper here is 150 gsm Chinese Premium paper 1.3 and is bound in Wibalin. The earlier Calla editions were printed on high quality Utopian ivory paper. Even though the paper in this edition is thick, it lacks the smooth finish of earlier Calla editions. This shows especially in the illustrations which lack the smooth, glossy finish of earlier editions.

Despite its flaws, I gave this edition three stars because I love the six stories from Greek mythology included here, i.e. The Minotaur, The Pygmies, The Dragon's Teeth, Circe's Palace, The Pomegranate Seeds, and The Golden Fleece. The 22 illustrations by Virginia Frances Sterrett include both color and black and white illustrations which are exquisite. I just wish the publishers had not skimped on the quality of the binding and paper.

More Greek myths that "raise the intellect and fancy to the level of childhood" 5 novembre 2005
Par D. Cloyce Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
In 1853 Hawthorne followed up the moderate success of his first collection of children's stories with "Tanglewood Tales for Girls and Boys, Being a Second Wonder Book." Like the first "Wonder Book," this volume gathers six more Greek myths rendered "presentable to children."

In the process, the author strips away "everything that is most abhorrent to our Christianized moral sense," not the least of which is anything that might imply that the Greek gods are, well, gods. On the one hand, it's hard to agree with Hawthorne's argument that "the objectionable characteristics seem to be a parasitic growth, having no connection with the original fable." On the other hand, the six bowdlerized stories, like the predecessors still "raise the intellect and fancy to the level of childhood, in order to re-create the original myths." In recasting these tales, then, Hawthorne has made something new and rather glorious out of them.

The stories as a group are not as well-known to young readers as those in the earlier volume. You'll find the Minotaur and the labyrinth, as well as Jason and the Golden Fleece. But there are also Hercules and the Pygmies, Cadmus and the famous dragon's teeth (which have inspired as many literary references as they had spawned soldiers), Ulysses and the sorcery of Circe (book 10 of "The Odyssey"), and the abduction (sans rape) of Proserpina by Pluto.

Gone are the interludes found in the earlier volume that described a horde of precocious neighborhood children encouraging and teasing their young narrator, Eustace Bright. Instead, Hawthorne presents them as polished manuscripts that had been honed and approved by the children, who are "even more delighted with the contents of the present volume than with the specimens which have already been given to the world." The stories are wondrous, in no small part because they are not as familiar. One drawback, however--as a cursory examination of the six subjects hints--is that each tale carries on a bit about the journeys that lead to the adventure; some children might feel these stories feature less action and more questing. But they are still loads of fun, and great for kids of all ages.

Great introduction to Greek mythology for children 1 avril 2000
Par Kitty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Belle reliure
I am 30-ish. When I was a child, my grandfather who lived overseas sent me "Tanglewood Tales." From the second I opened it, I was enthralled - not just by the stories, but by the fabulous illustrations. I agree wholeheartedly with the 79 year old reviewer who commented on how much good illustrations enhance a good book. But even without drawings, the book is well worth reading. I took that book with me on one of our family's summer holidays and the entire family spent many an evening before bedtime absorbed by the doings of the Gods.

Flipping the pages of time 19 août 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
We took some time to flip through Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Virginia Frances Sterrett, a book from the "Vintage books ~ restored" collection. Original clip music by Kevin MacLeod.
We hope you'll enjoy the clip (and the book, and the music) just as much as we did when filming it (and reading it, and listening to this sweet music).
