Back in Print!

 

Originally published as a two-volume set forty years ago, The Juniper Tree is distinguished first by the selection of stories. Lore Segal and Maurice Sendak jointly culled 27 from the 210 in the complete collection, and their contents page presents a fascinating critical statement. The translations are another distinguishing quality of the Segal/Sendak edition. Both translators have been painstakingly faithful to the German texts; they have not cut, “retold,” or bowdlerized. In addition, Segal and Jarrell bring to their renderings of Grimm the grace and precision that are characteristic of their own original prose.

 

·         One of the most acclaimed Grimm collections published in English, available again

·         An elegant, must-have edition for every home library

·         New lower-price of $19.99, formerly $28.00

·         Includes standards such as “Hansel and Gretel,” “The Fisherman and His Wife,” and “The Frog King” as well as lesser-known masterpieces such as the title story and “The Goblins”

·         Each story contains a full-page picture by Maurice Sendak

·         Four stories translated by Jarrell, the rest by Segal

Synopsis:

"A milestone, a tour de force, a joy to see...27 stories from the Grimm brothers' collection [including] some familiar tales and others that are less well known. The translations...are direct and fresh, unexpurgated and unsweetened. The illustrations are superb; beautiful, imaginative, appropriate, tender and terrible-as though the tales had been waiting for Maurice Sendak to interpret them. For children and adults."-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Translated by Lore Segal with four tales translated by Randall Jarrell. Illustrated by Maurice Sendak

"Many Fur" is translated from the text in the first edition of Kinder- und Hansmarchen (1812, 1815), which is more coherent than the versions in the later editions. The other tales are translated from lalter texts, as reworked by the Brothers Grimm.

Randall Jarrell's translations of "Fisherman and His Wife,"Hansel and Gretel," The Golden Bird and Other Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm (Macmillian, 1962), are reprinted here.
