Excerpt from Indian Fairy Tales as Told to the Little Children of the Wigwam N the long ago when the red men were the free and undisturbed occupants of this vast continent, one of their greatest pleasures was to repeat the won der-stories dear to the hearts of their people. When they had gathered around the crackling logs in the long winter evenings, or had stretched themselves on the grass under the starry skies of summer nights, old and young would listen in silent delight to the tales of mythical heroes who, they fondly believed, once dwelt on this earth and were far stronger and wiser than mere mortals. But these were not all. As the red children looked upward at the stars shining down upon them so brightly and lovingly; or as they turned their eyes upon the sparkling waters of the stream or lake; they fancied them alive with other and strange beings who had a charm and magic of their own. These, too, were woven into the tales to which they listened with eagerness and delight. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Traces the development of fairy tales, shows how they were changed to support moral public values, and discusses the work of Perrault, the Grimm Brothers, Andersen, and Baum
'The Queen and the bat had been talking a good deal that afternoon...' The Victorian fascination with fairyland vivified the literature of the period, and led to some of the most imaginative fairy tales ever written. They offer the shortest path to the age's dreams, desires, and wishes. Authors central to the nineteenth-century canon such as W. M. Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Ford Madox Ford, and Rudyard Kipling wrote fairy tales, and authors primarily famous for their work in the genre include George MacDonald, Juliana Ewing, Mary De Morgan, and Andrew Lang. This anthology brings together fourteen of the best stories, by these and other outstanding practitioners, to show the vibrancy and variety of the form and its abilities to reflect our deepest concerns. In tales of whimsy and romance, witty satire and uncanny mystery, love, suffering, family and the travails of identity are imaginatively explored. Michael Newton's introduction and notes provide illuminating contextual and biographical information about the authors and the development of the literary fairy tale. A selection of original illustrations is also included. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
