Publisher's Description

Editor Andrew Lang collected fairy tales from all over the world in his twelve Fairy Books. The second in this popular series is The Red Fairy Book, which contains thirty-seven fairy tales, some of which appeared for the first time in English in the collection. Lang's collections are notable for their graphic and often violent story elements, as well as for the beautiful original plates that are included as illustrations. Some of the stories in The Red Fairy Book include tales that became household favourites, such as "Jack and the Beanstock", "Rapunzel", and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses".

Author Bio

Andrew Lang (March, 31, 1844 – July 20, 1912) was a Scottish writer and literary critic who is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. Lang's academic interests extended beyond the literary and he was a noted contributor to the fields of anthropology, folklore, psychical research, history, and classic scholarship, as well as the inspiration for the University of St. Andrew's Andrew Lang Lectures. A prolific author, Lang published more than 100 works during his career, including twelve fairy books, in which he compiled folk and fairy tales from around the world. Lang's Lilac Fairy and Red Fairy books are credited with influencing J. R. R. Tolkien, who commented on the importance of fairy stories in the modern world in his 1939 Andrew Lang Lecture "On Fairy-Stories."
