Ten beloved fairy tales, given new life by the one and only Angela Carter Many classic fairy tale characters might not have survived into the present were it not for Charles Perrault, a seventeenth-century French civil servant who rescued them from the oral tradition and committed them to paper. Three centuries later, Angela Carter, widely regarded as one of England’s most imaginative writers, adapted them for contemporary readers. The result is a cornucopia of fantastic characters and timeless adventures, stylishly retold by a modern literary visionary.

This edition includes a good introduction by Jack Zipes that looks at how Carter's translation influences her and how she changes the morals at the end of the stories. If you loved Carters The Bloody Chamber then you have to read this to see how she was influenced by Perrault.
