Product Description

Fairy tales shape our cultures and enrich our imaginations; their narrative stability and cultural durability are
incontestable.

This Norton Critical Edition collects forty-four fairy tales, from the fifth century to the present. The Classic Fairy
Tales focuses on six tale types: "Little Red Riding Hood," "Beauty and the Beast," "Snow White," "Cinderella,"
"Bluebeard," and "Hansel and Gretel," and presents multicultural variants and sophisticated literary rescriptings. Also
reprinted are tales by Hans Christian Andersen and Oscar Wilde.

"Criticism" gathers twelve essays that interpret aspects of fairy tales, including their social origins, historical
evolution, psychological drama, gender issues, and national identities.

A Selected Bibliography is included.
