Description: "The tales in The Queen's Mirror open a window into the literary culture of nineteenth-century Germany, telling of the quest for romance, wealth, power, justice, and, most importantly, a way home, while women writers produced fairy tales with an astonishing range and play, their work has been effaced by the popular success of the Grimms' fairy tales. With this ambitious archaeological project, Jarvis and Blackwell reclaim stories that are up close and personal, but also culturally symptomatic, broadening our understanding of the anxieties and desires of an earlier era". -- Maria Tatar, author of Classic Fairy Tales.

This exciting and comprehensive anthology -- the first anthology of German women's fairy tales in English -- presents a variety of published and archival fairy tales from 1780 to 1900. These authors of these stories used fairy tales to explain their own lives, to teach children, to examine history, and to critique society and the status quo. Powerful and conflicted females are queens, girls on quests, mothers, daughters, magical wisewomen, and midwives to the fairies; they love, hate, murder, save children, fight tyranny, overcome cannibals, and rescue the working poor.
