Product description

About the Author

Karel JaromÃ-r Erben was born on November 7, 1811, in MiletÃ-n. He studied history and law at university in Prague and later was a member of the Bohemian Society of Sciences and the Academy of Sciences in Vienna, and served as archivist for the National Museum and later for the City of Prague. He eventually became fascinated with the mysteries contained in folklore and the original myth. Influenced by the Brothers Grimm and the burgeoning study in Europe of folk literature, he thus began to collect more than 2,200 Slavic fairy tales, folk songs, and legends. He died in Prague on Nov. 21, 1870. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"Handsomely produced by The Twisted Spoon from Prague, this intriguing collection of ballads and folktales ... brings alive a folkloric world where sacred trees and the Prophetess walk with lakes and children. The full-color artwork s at once harrowing and stunning."

"The thirteen tales that comprise Erben

"The thirteen tales in A Bouquet are not radically different from the Anglo-Saxon or specifically American folktales which might be more familiar to an English-language reader, although they certainly contain elements unique to their Bohemian origins." --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
