Grimms' Tales for Young and Old: The Complete Stories 

Paperback – August 9, 1983

All of the two hundred ten tales are newly rendered by the highly acclaimed translator who retains the rhythms and vitality of the oral forms in which the Brothers Grimm first recorded them.

For readers of all ages, two hundred and ten tales of the Brothers Grimm, including "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Snow White," and "Hansel and Gretel," translated by Ralph Manheim, the highly acclaimed and prize-winning translator. Manheim has rediscovered in the original German Grimms’ editions of the tales the unadorned, direct rhythm of the oral form in which they were first recorded. He has retained their ageless magic and mythology and restored the extraordinary vitality and wit, the acute perceptions of human strength and facility mirrored in the facets of these small gems.
