ASCHENPUTTEL, THE LITTLE ASH GIRL

The Original Brothers Grimm ‘Cinderella’ Fairytale

 

Brothers Grimm’s

Children’s and Household Tales

No. 21

 

By Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

Translated by Rachel Louise Lawrence

 

“Go to the little tree on your mother’s grave. Shake it and wish for beautiful clothes, but come back before midnight.”

 

In the Brothers Grimm’s version of a persecuted heroine’s struggle to escape the hardships she experiences following her widowed father’s marriage to a cruel woman with two beautiful but mean daughters, there are impossible tasks and helpful birds, a new name and an ash-dress, a Prince and three balls, a wish-tree and dresses of silver and gold. Can Aschenputtel find happiness and a future full of promise, or will her family succeed in keeping her as their cinder maid?

 

In one book, experience new translations of the first and seventh versions of Aschenputtel (Cinderella) alongside Allerleirauh (All Kinds of Fur), a close variant from the ‘Cinderella Cycle’ of fairytales. Also included is another ATU-510 type fairytale, The True Bride, taken from the final edition of the Brothers Grimm’s Children’s and Household Tales.
