His poetry includes Ballads and Lyrics of Old France (1872), Ballades in Blue China (1880--81), and Grass of Parnassus (1888--92). His anthropology and his defense of the value of folklore as the basis of religion is expressed in his works Custom and Myth (1884), Myth, Ritual and Religion (1887), and The Making of Religion (1898).

So what can I say? The Red/Yellow/Green/etc Fairy Book are classics - telling stories from across Europe, these stories are Iconic. In this collection, we have versions of Snow White, The Rat Catcher, Jack and the Beanstock, as well as lesser known The Six Sillies, Kari Woodgown and quite a few more.

I loved reading these as a child, as an adult they are still enjoyable, but they are considerable more dark. Most of these stories moral is very simple - be pretty or handsome, get a prince or princess. If you help an ugly person, they will reward you, if an ugly person helps you, you will be punished.… (más)

I read a pile of these as a young feller, but I seem to recall the Crimson one being a favorite.
