Book Summary

Beware! Keep Out Of Reach of children!

These poem-stories are a strange reenactment of seventeen Grimm fairy tales. What is most astonishing about these transformations is that they end up being wholly personal as Anne Sexton's most intimate poems, coming curiously, for all their story-sound, from as deep a place. C. K. Williams writes "her metaphoric strength has never been greater-- really funny, among other things, a dark, dark laughter. The tales she has transformed include Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Rapunzel, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, the Frog Prince, and Red Riding Hood. They create a wonderful little universe, and show the poet in a new role, with a voice strangely prophetic.  --Kurt Vonnegut
