This review is from: The Classic Fairy Tales (Norton Critical Editions) (Paperback)
This is a great edition for general readers as well as students and academics. The editor has done a wonderful job of selecting both different tellings of the tales themselves as well as some of the best critical writing on fairytales (Zipes, Propp, Warner, Bettelheim etc) to give a multifaceted view of these well-known stories. Her introduction also manages to cover a huge amount very briefly and lucidly. The issue of feminist responses to fairy tales is particularly well handled. I would recommend this very highly for those interested in teaching fairy tales.
