HASH(0x88c6936c) étoiles sur 5 GENIUS AT WORK! 11 juillet 2010
Par Elaine Campbell - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Arthur Rackham (1867-1939), English illustrator, was renowned in his time, so much so that his illustrations stand alone without even the accompanying tales in such books as "Rackham's Fairy Tale Illustrations in Full Color," selected and edited by Jeff A. Menges. During his life, Rackham illustrated a potpourri, in color and monotone, of famous stories and tales, and even illustrated some works by American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allen Poe. In the case of Hawthorne's Wonder Book, he also contributed some part-coloured block images similar in style to Meiji era Japanese woodblocks. Anyone who views his illustrations cannot doubt he was a genius.

This collection of fairy tales, originally published in 1933, contains 23 tales, with an introduction by Arthur Rackham himself. The tales are from their purest sources; eight of the illustrations are in color, with many more in monotone. Rackham had the gift of deeply connecting with the archetypal images he depicted. His illustrations are almost startling in their intensity. I don't believe they have ever been matched.

The tales and their sources are: (1) Traditional English - Dick Whittington, Jack and the Beanstalk, Henny-Penny and Jack the Giant-Killer; (2)Perrault - Hop-o-My-Thumb, Blue Beard, The Sleeping Beauty, Toads and Diamonds, Cinderella and Puss in Boots; (3) Hans Andersen - The Princess and the Pea, The Ugly Duckling, What the Old Man Does is Always Right and The Emperor's New Clothes; (4) The Arabian Nights - The Story of Sinbad the Sailor, The Story of Aladdin, or the Wonderful Lamp, The Barmecide's Feast and Ali Baba; (4) Madame de Villeneuve - Beauty and the Beast; (5) Grimm - Hansel and Grethel; (6) Washington Irving - Rip Van Winkle; and Southey - The Three Bears. This is an interesting version as the familiar Goldilocks is replaced by "a little old woman...[who] could not have been a good, honest old woman."

Interestingly, in Arthur Rackham's Introduction, he elucidates that after a long life of oral tradition, when these famous tales were consigned to "cold print," the traditional English tales (and he mentions specifically Jack the Giant-killer) "too often unfortunately fared rather badly, falling into uninspired hands when first written down." However, he qualifies this statement by saying "...yet in other respects they compare well with the best." On reading Jack the Giant-killer, I did notice less tautness and specificity. Still, it's one humdinger of a tale!

My favorite illustration among all the wondrous ones is the colored depiction of Blue Beard's wife inserting a key into a lock of the forbidden room as she looks back over her shoulder to make sure she has not been detected. Rackham just had a knack for making the viewer feel he is right there!

Highly recommended. Now I'm going to go on to his illustrated version of The Romance of King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Alfred W. Pollard.

Well worth the price I paid for this classic work.I had recently discovered Rackham and was desirous of having at least one book in our library with a sample. This was a great find and gave me what I was looking for. The copy I received was in excellent shape. Certainly a little more through telling of some childhood story. Has something you can share with children and enjoy as an adult.

This book is very like one I had as a small girl, I remember the pictures enchanting me.Reading the stories now is a little odd,very entertaining,and very different from what I thought I remembered.

The fairy tales are classic, (they are not about fairies) . There are enough illustrations to enjoy, though with Arthur Rackham one is always left wishing for more.
