    Beautiful tales 1 The Fairy Tale this tale is better known by the title of The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily I understood this tale as a compromise, wisdom, light, and power. Love that part where the king speaks to the snake Written by Goethe.2 Eckbert the Fair written by Ludwig Tieck.I absolutely enjoy reading this tale What a message Be careful how you act, think about your actions, mostly be thankful for one others have done for you.3 Undine written by Friedrich de la Mo Beautiful tales 1 The Fairy Tale this tale is better known by the title of The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily I understood this tale as a compromise, wisdom, light, and power.

    The stories chosen are a great introduction to German Romanticism and the Kunstm rchen the sort of literary counterpart to Volksm rchen, or folk tales The introduction is very informative, though it and the analysis of the individual stories are best read after one has finished the stories.

    Recently there s been a lot of fairy tale hype happening Turn on the TV and you ll see advertisements for Grimm and Once Upon a Time The theater this year will have two, yes two movies centering on Snow White We ve had recent movies re telling Beauty and the Best and Red Riding Hood and this fairy tale uprising, I believe, is just getting started.I recently took a class that focused on uncanny literature from Continental European authors These stories were included in the reading for that cl Recently there s been a lot of fairy tale hype happening Turn on the TV and you ll see advertisements for Grimm and Once Upon a Time The theater this year will have two, yes two movies centering on Snow White We ve had recent movies re telling Beauty and the Best and Red Riding Hood and this fairy tale uprising, I believe, is just getting started.I recently took a class that focused on uncanny literature from Continental European authors These stories were included in the reading for that class and I will not sugarcoat this some of them were strange, disturbing, and outright freaky But that makes it all thefun to read, right Between poor Casper and Annie and all this business about beheading to Eckbert and that business about the incest, these fairy tales are accessable so much so I forgot I was reading for class at some points and just enjoyed reading fairy tales that I was very unfamiliar with.So if you are a fan of Grimms Fairy Tales and want to experience a littleon the uncanny side, this is a volume of stories that will sit proudly on your shelf It s a book of pure fun and grossness

    Basically, if you want to tear your soul apart, read this book And I mean this in a good way, believe it or not Four stories from around the late 18th early 19th century are included in here, and three fourths of them manage to outgrim Grimm ha, ha, ha However, they re good for sending some chills down your spine or even shedding some tears And while I found Brentano s Tale of Honest Casper and Fair Annie and Tieck s Eckbert the Fair to be personally cloying especially Brentano , Fouque Basically, if you want to tear your soul apart, read this book And I mean this in a good way, believe it or not Four stories from around the late 18th early 19th century are included in here, and three fourths of them manage to outgrim Grimm ha, ha, ha However, they re good for sending some chills down your spine or even shedding some tears And while I found Brentano s Tale of Honest Casper and Fair Annie and Tieck s Eckbert the Fair to be personally cloying especially Brentano , Fouque s Undine is genuinely tragic and heartbreaking I truly felt for those characters.For me, the best of the four was Goethe s story, simply titled Fairy Tale Don t let the title deceive you it is farimaginative than the boring, to the point title might suggest I almost see a proto proto Gaiman story with this one somewhat in the vein of Stardust , and it doesn t go unappreciated I ll make sure to seekGoethe out in the future I can see why some of the most famous writers and historical figures hyped him up so much Overall, a good book of stories to read while it s raining

Romantic Fairy Tales The German Romantic movement arose in response to the turmoil of the French Revolution and to the Enlightenment s emphasis on science and reason Nostalgia for the past and a fascination with mysticism and medivialism caused a group of writers to adopt the foremost form of the Kunstmar or literary fairy tales This collection, vividly illustrating the development of German Romanticism, presents four of the genre s key texts that still have the power to enchant and disturb Goethe s The Fairy Talean ethereal story of prophecy and resurrection helped establish of the genre Ludwig Tieck s Eckbert the Fairis a dark story of incest and murder Friedrich de la Motte Fouque describes the unhappy fate of a wood nymph with the soul of a woman in UndineIn The Tale of Honest Casper and Fair Annie, Clemens Brentano tells the tale of young couple destroyed by a false sense of honor
