Grimm Tales Made Gay – With Gay Pictures by Albert Levering
This edition of Grimm Tales Made Gay, contains parodies of many of the Brothers Grimm’s narratives – as never seen before. It includes the fantastic children’s stories of ‘How Little Red Riding Hood Came to be Eaten’, ‘How the Babes in the Wood showed they Couldn’t be Beaten’, ‘How Beauty was waked and her Suitor was Suited’, ‘How Jack found that Beans May go back on a Chap’, ‘How a Cat was Annoyed and a Poet was Booted’ – and many more. They are wonderfully illustrated by Albert Levering (1869 – 1929) – an illustrator and author famed for his light-hearted and comical touches.
The Brothers Grimm are perhaps the best known folklorists of all time. Die Brüder Grimm; Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors – who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the nineteenth century. The popularity of their collected tales has endured well; they have been translated into more than 100 languages, and remain in print in the present day. This is a text to be appreciated by young and old alike; extraordinary for its literary as well as artistic significance.
