Summary (From the publisher):

What the fairy tale expresses again and again in poetic form is a fundamental human possibility: a sense of freedom - freedom not of the world as it is but as it might be. The fairy tale in essence means return: return to the familiar, to childhood, to paradise. The fairy tale is a whispered promise: you're here at last, you're home again. Included here are 58 of the most familiar Grimm fairy tales and, as token examples of later developments there are three fairy tales by Ludwig Bechstein and one anti-fairy tale by Iring Fetscher.
