pFairy Tales seem scarcely to require any preface, but in publishing these quaint Norse legends, a few explanatory remarks may not be out of place./ppIn their original form, many of the stories are somewhat crude and rough for juvenile reading. This it has been the Editors endeavour to ameliorate by eliminating all objectionable matter, while at the same time preserving the originality and local colouring which most of them possess./ppIt will be found that though some bear a similarity to the well-known standard fairy tales, which have been the delight of countless children for many generations, yet they all possess an originality peculiarly their own./ppIt is remarkable too that, whereas in most southern legends it is always the prince who delivers the princess and performs the heroic and valorous deeds, in these tales it is for the most part the young 6princess or peasant maiden who undergoes all the hardships and trials, and after countless dangers rescues the prince who has fallen under the ban of some wicked witch or giantess./ppThe story of the five brothers, one of the quaintest, is an exceedingly effective illustration of the old proverb of the bundle of sticks./ppA strong moral tone runs more or less through all the tales, exhibiting the higher and better qualities of human nature.br /Mrs. A.
