Norwegian Folktales (The Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)


Long a treasure in Norway, the folktales gathered by way of Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe were acclaimed for his or her richness of humor, fullness of existence, and intensity of realizing due to the fact that they first seemed in translation greater than 100 years in the past. The Norwegian folktales, acknowledged Jacob Grimm, “surpass approximately all others.”
 
Within those pleasing stories we meet witches, trolls, and ogres; sly foxes and nice, mysterious bears; attractive princesses and country-lads-turned-heroes. amassed right here in a gleaming modern translation by way of Pat Shaw Iversen and Carl Norman, those stories brim with the matchless energy and tool in their unique telling. integrated are also the splendidly evocative unique illustrations of Erik Werenskiold and Theodor Kittelsen.
