The Crimson Fairy Book

; 1st World Publishing (Redaktør) ; 1stWorld Publishing (Redaktør)

Each Fairy Book demands a preface from the Editor, and these introductions
are inevitably both mono-tonous and unavailing. A sense of literary honesty
compels the Editor to keep repeating that he is the Editor, and not the author
of the Fairy Tales, just as a distinguished man of science is only the Editor,
not the Author of Nature. Les mer

Each Fairy Book demands a preface from the Editor, and these introductions
are inevitably both mono-tonous and unavailing. A sense of literary honesty
compels the Editor to keep repeating that he is the Editor, and not the author
of the Fairy Tales, just as a distinguished man of science is only the Editor,
not the Author of Nature. Like nature, popular tales are too vast to be the
creation of a single modern mind. The Editor's business is to hunt for
collections of these stories told by peasant or savage grandmothers in many
climes, from New Caledonia to Zululand; from the frozen snows of the Polar
regions to Greece, or Spain, or Italy, or far Lochaber. When the tales are
found they are adapted to the needs of British children by various hands, the
Editor doing little beyond guarding the interests of propriety, and toning down
to mild reproofs the tortures inflicted on wicked step-mothers, and other
naughty characters.
