British Folk Tales and Legends (Routledge Classics)by Katharine Briggs
Synopses & Reviews
Gathered within this wonderful new edition is an extravagance of beautiful princesses and stout stable boys, sour-faced witches and kings with hearts of gold. Each tale is a masterpiece of storytelling.
Once upon a time a writer decided to set down the most memorable and magical tales she could find. She searched the country high and low, seeking out folktales and legends, ancient lore and modern cautionary tales. This title contains her collection.
In 1970 Katharine Briggs published in four volumes the vast and authoritative Dictionary of British Folktales and Legends to wide acclaim. This sampler comprises the very best of those tales and legends. Gathered within, readers will find an extravagance of beautiful princesses and stout stable boys, sour-faced witches and kings with hearts of gold. Each tale is a masterpiece of storytelling, from the hilarious 'Three Sillies' to the delightfully macabre 'Sammle's Ghost'.
