Franz Xaver von Schönwerth traversed the forests, lowlands, and mountains of northern Bavaria to record fairy tales. Most of Schönwerth's work was lost-- until a few years ago, when thirty boxes of manuscripts were uncovered in a German municipal archive. Available for the first time in English, the tales are violent, dark, full of action, and upend the relationship between damsels in distress and their dragon-slaying heroes.… (mais)

Before I get into any sort of evaluation of the content of this book I must admit that the format was a bit disappointing. From a purely academic standpoint, the no-nonsense presentation of Schönwerth's of Germanic folktales is highly usable; tales are grouped by subject matter (heroes, magical beasts, etc), the translation is readable yet not embellished, and the tales themselves are recorded similarly to how Schönweth collected them (as fragments and highly simplified). But what draws many people into fairytales (besides the stories themselves) is often the presentation and embelishment that is missing in this book. Obviously Schönweth's efforts to collect folk and fairytales was never fully realized through publication in his lifetime - as were the contemporary Grimm Brothers - so it of great use for scholars to have an accurate and raw translation of his work to promote academic interest in humankind's myth and legend before the stories are inevitably corrupted for mass consumption.

That being said, this collection is likelty to be of great use to authors wishing to draw inspiration from another folk and fairytale font of knowledge. Schönwerth's stories are quite raw and violent in their simplicity, which I think may just be perfect for modern authors who are not afraid to embrace mankind's darker past. It will also be interesting to see whether any effort will be made by the Disney-subset of reinterpreters, since they will really have their work cut out for them if they want to make any of the stories into "family friendly" narratives.

It was interesting to read a book of Fairy Tales not written by the Brothers Grimm. This was a different collection of stories, but they still felt very familiar. ( )

A long, long time ago, there lived a princess, and a prince, and a talking frog, and a daring dung beetle, and a couple homely honey bees - spring time assassins of the Oak King. Okay, I may have lost the plot there. I'm just going to go ahead and yank back on that thread I threw out there (read: spoil everything) and confirm that there are no assassin honey bees in this book.

My point is this: a long, long time ago cultures were built upon the tips of tongues. A rich oral tradition was just as vital to the progress of time as any other building block and stories spun by bedside or from the corner of a town's inn on a dreary night each had their own ripples. Some of those ripples have given us modern fairytales which are a blend of many different influences and era-centric attitudes. Some of those ripples faded to the background in certain times and places for any number of reasons. The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales turns an eye to the efforts of one man, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, and his desire to seek out the origins and petering sparks of lost fairytales. The ancestral timbre of these lost stories isn't blunted by any generational sieve and, as such, they capture quite a bit more of the intensity of their eras.

I enjoyed this collection as a whole. There were some stories that I felt were better than others and some I can definitely see myself rereading in the future. There were also stories whose connection to what have become Disneyfied fairytales was obvious in parts and some that felt like a fresh script entirely. I think that blend makes this a pretty important book for fairytale and folklore fans and writers right off the bat. The story of their discovery and collection even has a bit of lore like feel to it in itself. An adventuring collector of lost stories, dusty boxes slumbering away until a discovery is made.

I'd love to see the trajectory of this collection; what ripples it gives off and in what avenues. Honestly, I think right now is a pretty perfect time for this book to make its greatest impact. We've been in the trenches of retelling for such a long time and as comfortable (or disastrous depending on your capability for retelling angst, character angst, or simply angst in general) as our beloved stories can be as first imagined and reimagined (and reimagined and reimagined) - a fresh breath is welcome and wonderful to experience.

And Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales

In 2012, a bunch of long lost fairy tales were discovered. Now, we can read them for the first time in an English translation. What I really liked about the fairy tales is that they were written down as the local stories of the region. And while some of them do seem very similar to more well known fairy tales, it just goes to show how stories start to diverge in different regions.

I'm not at all that familiar with reading real fairy tales, the ones that do not have a happy ending and a Disney wedding at the end. The stories are very short, sometimes just a few pages long, but it was easily and readable. It also read way faster than I anticipated. Sometimes the stories did feel a little bit more of the same, but not to the point it got annoying.

If you love fairy tales, you should check out these new ones. But you might want to choose something else to read to your little children.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

Man, I wish I could just be wandering about and a wood sprite would give me golden thread and then I owned a castle and also a magic sword that could chop the heads off any of my enemies. Plus a frog that talked and some rubies. And be able to fly. Or change into a donkey. Really, anything from The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth, except being one of the ones ones getting my head cut off and or drowned in a barrel. Fairy tales are weird. The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales publishes a whole stack of them that were collected by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth from Eastern Bavaria in the 1850s. A puppeteer (amongst other things) found them in the files of a municipal archives in 2009. That alone seems like it could be made into a fairy tale, or at least a National Treasure. The movie could have really cartoony Nazis, like in that Indiana Jones movie I never saw (which would be all of them), and then the magic from the stories could come to life, and maybe Gorbachev could be there, and I'm focusing more on this because I don't really have much to say about this book. They are traditional, oral, German, fairy tales. People get tricked and turned into animals and then curses are lifted and things happen for really no reason whatsoever. Characters act sort of like random particles, bumping into each other, and causing odd chaotic effects to ripple through. And no one has any real internal psychological thought; people just live and do. They don't think.

In the car this summer, we listened to The Collected Works of The Brothers Grimm; The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales was a nice comparison piece to go along with that. You could see the tropes that linked these stories to those. It's definitely not Disney-fied stuff, but it isn't R-rated either. Kind of a fun diversion from the regular stream of depressing, internal-monologue, novels I read.

The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth went on sale February 24, 2015.

I received a copy free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
