Originally issued in 1934, this first collection of modernist fairy tales ever published in England has never been surpassed. Even today, this reimagining of 14 timeless tales—from "Puss in Boots" to "Little Red Riding Hood"—is still fresh and bold, portraying the Little Mermaid as a Canadian swimmer lured to Hollywood, and Cinderella becoming a spinster and holy woman—creating a very different happily ever after. Lord Dunsany works his magic on the story of Snow White and A.E. Coppard reworks Jack and the Bean Stalk, while in "Oh, If I Could But Shiver," Christina Stead reboots a tale by the Brothers Grimm.
