Maria Tatar (Editor, Harvard University)


“I have used this textbook for four courses on children’s literature with enrollments of over ninety students. It is without doubt the most well organized selection of literary fairy tales and critical commentaries currently available. Students love it.”
—Lita Barrie, California State University, Los Angeles

This Norton Critical Edition includes:
· Seven different tale types: “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Snow White,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Cinderella,”
“Bluebeard,” and “Tricksters.” These groupings include multicultural versions, literary rescriptings, and introductions and
annotations by Maria Tatar.
· Tales by Hans Christian Andersen and Oscar Wilde.
· More than fifteen critical essays exploring the various aspects of fairy tales. New to the Second Edition are interpretations by Ernst Bloch, Walter Benjamin, Max Lüthi, Lewis Hyde, Jessica Tiffin, and Hans-Jörg Uther.
· A revised and updated Selected Bibliography.
