Turnip Princess

De (autor): Franz Xaver von Schonwerth

Turnip Princess

Turnip Princess

De (autor): Franz Xaver von Schonwerth

A rare discovery in the world of fairy tales - now for the first time in English.

With this volume, the holy trinity of fairy tales - the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen - becomes a quartet. In the 1850s, Franz Xaver von Schoenwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales, gaining the admiration of even the Brothers Grimm. Most of Schoenwerth's work was lost - until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manu-scripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive.

Now, for the first time, Schoenwerth's lost fairy tales are available in English. Violent, dark, and full of action, and upending the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes, these more than seventy stories bring us closer than ever to the unadorned oral tradition in which fairy tales are rooted, revolutionizing our understanding of a hallowed genre.


'Schoenwerth's tales have a compositional fierceness and energy rarely seen in stories gathered by the Brothers Grimm or Charles Perrault' -The New Yorker

'Schoenwerth's legacy counts as the most significant collection in the German-speaking world in the nineteenth century' - Daniel Drascek, University of Regensburg

Franz Xanver von Schoenwerth (1810-1886) was born in Bavaria and had a successful career in law
and the Bavarian royal court before devoting himself to researching the customs of his homeland and preserving its fairy tales and folklore.

Maria Tatar chairs the program in folklore and mythology at Harvard, and has edited and translated many collections of fairy tales.

Eeika Eichenseer is a historian and preservationist working for the Bavarian government and the director of the
Franz Xaver von Schoenwerth Society.
