Revue de presse

Praise for the first edition: "...can inspire that sharp fairytale pleasure at impending danger, as when the witch's voice cackles: 'Nibble, nibble where's the mouse? Who's that nibbling at my house.'" (Marina Warner, The Times); "[It is] a very good thing to rescue fairy tales from their airbrushed, deracinated, Barbie-ised place in modern culture..." (New Statesman); "For this beautiful edition...Maria Tatar has provided new translations and a series of fascinating textual notes." --(London Review of Books)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Publication of the Grimms Children's Stories and Household Tales in 1812 brought the great European oral folk tradition into print for the first time. The Annotated Brothers Grimm returns in a deluxe and augmented 200th-anniversary edition commemorating that landmark event. Adding to such favourites as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and Rapunzel, Maria Tatar includes six new entries, among them Four Clever Brothers, The Water of Life, The White Snake, and The Old Man and His Grandson. The expanded edition features an enhanced selection of illustrations, many in colour, by legendary artists such as George Cruikshank and Arthur Rackham; annotations that explore the historical origins, cultural context, and psychological effects of the tales; and a biographical essay on Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. A perennial favourite in the acclaimed Norton Annotated series, this magnificent volume will draw both children and adults into the enchanting world of fairy tales. Introduction by A.S. Byatt.

HASH(0x8e6528c4) étoiles sur 5 An imaginative feast 24 octobre 2004
Par Luan Gaines - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Like the others in this series (The Annotated Wizard of Oz, The Annotated A Christmas Carol), this volume is beautifully illustrated and annotated with details that personalize the age-old tales, revealing original publishers names and themes, a behind-the-scenes peek at the historical background of those fairy tales we have loved since childhood.

In a very personal introduction, A.S. Byatt speaks of her own yearning for myth and fantasy as a young girl: talking birds, unicorns, princesses, imps and spun gold, hair cascading down the length of a turret. Byatt cautions us to remember the violent nature of the past and that the acceptance of violence was a part of everyday life; hence, the physical became part of the narrative, public hangings common to the times. The beauty of fairy tales is that limbs grow back and the sleeper awakens, once more alive.

The editor/translator has reassembled original Grimm stories in the order they were first seen by the public. There are the most familiar, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and The Golden Goose; but Tater goes even further, adding stories that were removed, most originally meant for adults, later considered too bawdy for the consumption of children. And Tater has another surprise in this volume: a biographical essay on the Grimm Brothers, their personal lives and political views, as well as the original prefaces.

This book is a treasure on many levels, the early appreciation of fantasy read as a child, the historical implications of those tales, the psychology that underlies the power of story and man's need for images to act great battles of good and evil. Far deeper than mere storytelling, the Tales of the Brothers Grimm are the sturm und drang of the German culture, powerful and political, pagan and pure, complex and simple. Cultural complications aside, this tome stimulates curiosity at every turn, the beginning of a great adventure even adults can enjoy.

These wonderful, familiar stories are brought to life by the exquisite illustrations, both black and white and full color, as well as the annotated remarks that add such flavor to the interpretation. A visual and intellectual treat, The Annotated Brothers Grimm is a feast of possibilities, fancies, fears and dreams. The impossible is possible. It is all a matter of imagination. Luan Gaines/2004.

HASH(0x8e652a2c) étoiles sur 5 Old stories, modern language 17 août 2009
Par R. Terrence Hill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was a little disappointed to find that Ms. Tatar chose to modernize the language of the Tales to the extent she did. While it's not a bad idea to make literature that is at least purportedly aimed at children more accessible, I think it is also important that the language retain some of the character of the original. Case in point: one of my favorite Grimm tales, "The Boy Who Could Not Shudder," which frightened me immensely as a child, has been changed dramatically here. Instead of being unable to shudder, the boy is unable to get the creeps. That's not really even the same thing, and lessens the impact by failing to use exactly the right word in exactly the right circumstance, a goal toward which I believe all writers, translators, or editors should strive.

HASH(0x8e4f6ea0) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful book with excellent content 9 août 2005
Par J. Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was surprised by the depth and value of the content in such a beautiful, "coffee-table" book. This is a collection of the Grimm's Fairy Tales with annotations describing each tale, where it fit within the collecting work of the Grimms', and what individual allusions and themes might mean throughout each text.

Readers beware: this is not a children's book. Rather, it might be read by an adult to children, but it contains much thoroughly overblown academic delvings into the psychosocial an psychosexual meanings supposedly behind many of the tales. It also does not shy away from bringing the readers attention to all of the sexual dimensions found in various other forms of the tales.

All that said, this is a valuable book chronicling the history of the Grimms' collection, illustrating and adding to the content in many helpful and enjoyable ways.

HASH(0x8e620c48) étoiles sur 5 The annotations were less than enthralling 23 février 2008
Par TS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This edition has a great deal to go for it. It is beautifully illustrated, contains the "authoritative" direct 1857 versions of many of the Grimm's collected tales, and it includes several tales which have been bowdlerized out of more modern editions, such as "The Jew in the Brambles."

Despite these virtues, however, it has two distinct flaws.

1) It is not complete. Rather than include the complete collection of stories, it focuses on the better-known stories such as Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, etc. It does include many lesser-known stories, but it doesn't have them all.

2) I personally found the annotations somewhat pointless. Rather than provide new information, or explicate the period germanic background from which the tales were derived, or provide much information about the Grimm's scholarly research, they merely provided the annotator's own personal interpretation of the story, i.e., "fetched some large stones and filled the wolf's belly with them. The stones have been read as a sign of sterility, but they are more likely an appropriate retaliation for the incorporation of Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother."

I'm not sure this volume ever really made up its mind as to its target audience. It includes too many stories with clearly offensive themes (again, "The Jew in the Brambles") to be suitable for young children, but at the same time, the annotations do not appear to be aimed at scholarly readers, and the wealth of illustration gives the impression the book is aimed at young audiences after all.

I personally would have been happier with a volume that included the entire collection of Grimm's tales and detailed, factual annotations. Other readers might prefer a cozy illustrated volume of Grimm's Greatest Hits with annotations to spell out the complicated parts ("Wait, the wolf is a sexual predator?!"). This volume seemed to attempt to strike at both those targets, and hit neither (although it fell closer to the second).

HASH(0x8e600f3c) étoiles sur 5 multi-faceted appreciation of Grimm's fairy tales 5 septembre 2004
Par Henry Berry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
THE ANNOTATED BROTHERS GRIMM, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, edited with a Preface and Notes by Maria Tatar, translated by Maria Tatar, Introduction by A. S. Byatt. Norton, 500 Fifth Ave., NY, 10110. 2004. 462+lvii pp. $35.00 hard cover/7" x 10", ISBN 0-393-05848-4. color/black-and-white illustrations, bibliography.

With its color illustrations by Rackham, Nielsen, Cruikshank, and other popular book illustrators, and simple, spritey translations by Tatar, this collection of Grimm's Tales can be appreciated solely for its visual and literary quality. The rich blue cover with gilded decoration and lettering contributes as well to the special quality of this book. But for readers looking for more than the timeless fairy tales tales well told complemented by pleasing illustrations, Tatar's marginal annotations and introductory essay "Reading the Grimms" along with A. S. Byatt's 10-page Introduction enhance the tales in citing the origins of their elements, pointing to references of their characters and imagery, and denoting particular representations of themes and teachings found in all fairy tales and similar children's literature. Such material defines the distinctiveness of the Grimm's works while also setting them within the wide and long tradition of children's literature. With its inclusion of nine Grimm's "Tales for Adults" omitted from typical collections along with the varied other material allowing for appreciation or study of the many fairy tales in different ways, this work stands alone in its treatment of the tales. It's a part of the publisher's series of annotated editions of popular classics, including the Wizard of Oz and the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
