5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not all editions are created equal. 22 avril 2009

If you are new to Lang, it started in 1889 with the blue fairy book, and then a series developed, yellow, crimson, orange, red, and so forth.

The fact that this series has endured to now is a testament to its quality.

As you read, you will discover fairy tales and myths from all over the world, including the well known writers such as Grimm, Andersen, Perrault, and Mme D'Aulnoy.

These are not the politically correct stories you might expect, and I believe you will find them useful whether it's for your own reading pleasure, of for passing on stories to children.

In fact, if you look beyond the surface of the story, there is a cautionary aspect for children who might get lost, and the evil characters they might meet like the wolf in sheep's clothing, or the boy who cried wolf, or the nice person who offers a gift, but is really a wicked queen in disguise.

There may be a young prince who helps a hairy man escape, and the king embarrassed and enraged orders the child to be killed. Naturally the woodsman slaughters an animal instead, and returns those to the king instead as evidence of performance of the deed.

There are stories of boys becoming men, being tested by the princess, and doing great deeds to prove their worth. Some characters are wicked and evil, and so the protagonist has to develop resources of their own to defeat the deceit, trickery, jealousy, ambition, and wickedness of the people they encounter.

I recommend you start with the blue book, because it has most of the best known stories, for example, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Bluebeard, Puss in Boots. You can check the contents of each book at mythfolklore, and even read the stories online.

If you are buying Lang, you need to know which publisher, because there are many editions through different publishers, some are good with nice print and pictures, others have small print and no pictures.

I highly recommend the Dover edition which has pictures and good size print. These pictures are black and white drawings. The Boomer books edition has good size print. If you want a durable hardcover library style book with a red string bookmark, I recommend the D N Goodchild books. Avoid the compilation book, and buy them individually.

One of my favorite stories not in this edition is The wooing of Olwen. It's unusually cruel and bloodthirsty from Wales and King Arthur's court.

I know you will enjoy these wonderful stories, and I hope this review was helpful.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Collection of Classic Fairy Tales 23 octobre 2013
Par Jill Clardy - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've been reading this book during my volunteer assignment with Learning Ally (formerly Reading for the Blind & Dyslexic). Delving into the classic fairy tales is like rolling back the years to my youth. I went through a phase when I was probably 10-12 years old when I read every fairy tale book I could get my hands on. If this collection was available way back then, I'm sure I would have absorbed the pages... There's a wide range of tales of kings and queens, princesses and princes, fools and ogres and mythical beings. At first I was quite shocked at how violent some of the tales are, and I questioned how suitable they are for children. But then I remember that I read some quite gruesome tales when I was a child and it didn't scar me or turn me into an axe-murderer :) Children do have an ability to separate fantastic fiction from real life. The tales will allow children of all ages (like me) to think creatively and inhabit a magical world - a much better use of any kid's time than video games or television !

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fairy Tales As They Were Realistically Written 12 février 2017
Par Susan Marie Molloy - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
“The Blue Fairy Book” is the first of twelve fairy stories that were researched, translated and compiled by Andrew Lang (1844-1912) and his wife, Lang, a Scotsman, was a literary critic, novelist, poet, and a contributor to the field of anthropology,

This book contains stories from the ”Arabian Nights,” Madame d’Aulnoy, the Grimm brothers, and a few Norwegian fairy tales. While interesting to read, many of these are gruesome and violent, as many fairy tales are in the original writings. (Not all fairy tales are the sappy sweet rewritten Disney rip-off versions.)

In this book are “Cinderella,” “Aladdin,” “Why the Sea is Salt,” “”Puss in Boots,” “Toads and Diamonds,” “Rose Red and Rose White,” “The Yellow Dwarf,” and more.

Some of these stories are difficult to read because of the writing style, some are quick reads due to the brevity of the tale, and some just don’t make sense in the way they end.

All in all, I do recommend this book for literary and psychological research, and for the fun of it if you are so inclined.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hesperus Press Edition is GREAT 6 juillet 2016
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Hesperus Press Hardback edition: It's hard to find a modern issue of the Blue Fairy Book that is unedited/unabridged and includes ALL the original tales. The Hesperus Press edition includes all that and is illustrated! The drawings are black and white, nothing exciting, but well done and enjoyable. Really glad to have found this edition for my shelf and will be purchasing all of their Fairy Book editions!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Will burn you out on fairy tales for a while 29 mars 2014
Par A. Meyer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
An impressive book full of fairy tales taken from all over Europe and the Middle East. Many of the themes are repetitive though so it could become tiresome to some readers. I did enjoy quite a few of the tales have their basis in Greek and Roman mythology, and it is interesting to see how they have stayed alive in the common lore until the fairy tales were written down. With all that aside, this is a large book and better to be read in spurts rather than all at once, as well as being only the first volume of tales in a collection
