Jeanne Marie Beaumont first book of poetry, Writers and readers have long been inspired by the haunting wisdom and sheer imaginative power to be found in the fairy tales of the immortal Brothers Grimm.I give a brief quote from an included poem by Lisel Mueller "Reading the Brothers Grimm to Jenny": Why do I read you talesin which birds speak the truthand pity cures the blind,and beauty reaches deep to prove a royal mind? I have the golden key--and learn from you once morethe terror and the bliss,the world as it might be?Here are tales both familiar and unfamiliar, reimagined by various poets that explore the hidden meanings behind such stories as “Little Red Riding Hood”, “The Sleeping Beauty”, “Rapunzel”, “Hansel and Gretel”, et al.If the chosen stories are limited in choice, the poems are unlimited in scope, dealing with what truly happens behind closed palace doors and within witches’s gingerbread houses.This collection is a welcome addition to that wealth.It belongs on the shelf next to your copy of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber.
Fresh life and interest is breathed back into tales like Hansel and Gretel and I highly recommend this for teachers and fairy tale aficionados alike.
