The European Folktale: Form and Nature
"Niles' excellent translation should bring Lüthi's sensitive and articulate study the recognition it deserves among English readers." --Library Journal
Lüthi demonstrates how the folktale, by its very distance from reality, can play upon the most important themes of human existence.

One of my favorite fairy tale books. Luthi explains what a folktale or fairy tale really is and how it functions in that way. A very enlightening text. Read full review
