Fairy Tale of the World free pdf This is not a fairy tale in the usual sense. There are no princesses, no golden eggs, no happy endings. A brooding portrait of a solitary postapocalyptic existence, "The Fairy Tale of the World "is nonetheless compelling. The story was originally conceived by a brilliant young German writer, Georg Buchner, who died tragically at the age of twenty-three. His dark vision reflects the social injustice of his time. Award-winning Swiss author Jurg Amann has adapted "The Fairy Tale of the World" from a scene in Buchner's "Woyzeck," a moving play about the effects of poverty. Internationally acclaimed artist Kathi Bhend has stunningly and surprisingly interpreted Amman's lyrical language and bleak imagery. Together they have created a book that offers not only Buchner's dark vision but also a promise of innocence and hope in a dark, despairing world.

About Jurg Amann

GEORG BuCHNER (1813-1837) died when he was only 23, but his place in German literature is monumental. As a writer who fought for the rights of underprivileged people--peasants, workers, everyone who suffered exploitation--Buchner was a fearless precursor of those who fight to protect human rights and social equality. JuRG AMANN is one of Switzerland's most honored writers. He started his writing career with a study of Franz Kafka's works, and has also worked as a journalist and a dramaturge at the main theater of Zurich. KaTHI BHEND's illustrations have been described as "breathtaking," "profoundly beautiful," exquisitely detailed," "extraordinary." Born in Switzerland, Kathi studied commercial art and worked in advertising for several years before she began illustrating books.
