    JULIANA HORATIA EWINGS WORKS - OLD-FASHIONED FAIRY TALES BROTHERS oF PITY AND OTHER TALES OF BEASTS AND MEN -- PREFACE As the title of this story-book may possibly suggest that the tales are old fairy tales told afresh, it seems well to explain that this is not so. . Except for the use of common properties of Fairy Drama, and a scrupulous endeavour to con- form to tradition in local colour and detail, the stories are all new. They have appeared at intervals during some years past in AUNT JUDYS MAGAZINE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE, and were written in conformity to certain theories respecting stories of this kind, with only two of which shall the kindly reader of prefaces be troubled. First, that there are ideas and types, occurring in the myths of all countries, which are common properties, to use which does not lay the teller of fairy tales open to the charge of plagiarism. Such as the idea of the weak outwitting the strong the failure of man, to choose wisely when he may have his wish or the desire of sprites to exchange their careless and unfettered existence for the pains and penalties of humanity, if they may thereby share in the hopes of the human soul. Secondly, that in these household stories the models for which were originally oral tradition, the thing most to be avoided is a discursive or descriptive style of writing. Brevity and epigram must ever be soul of their wit, and they should be written as tales that are told. The degree in which, if at all, the following tales fulfil these conditions, nursery critics must decide. There are older critics before whom fairy tales, as such, need excuse, even if they do not meet withpositive disapprobation. On this score I can only say that, formyself, I believe them to be -beyond all need of defence - most valuable literature for the young. I do not believe that wonder-tales confuse childrens ideas of truth. If there are young intellects so imperfect as to be incapable of distinguishing between fancy - and falsehood, it is surely most desirable to develop in them the power to do so but, as a rule, in child- hood we appreciate the distinction with a vivacity which, as elders, our care-clogged memories fail to recall. Moreover fairy tales have positive uses in educa- tion, which no cramming of facts, and no merely domestic fiction can serve. Like Proverbs and Parables, they deal with first principles under the simplest forms. They convey knowledge of the world, shrewd lessons of virtue and vice, of common sense and sense of humour, of the seemly and the absurd, of pleasure and pain, success and failure, in narratives where the .plot moves briskly and dramatically from a beginning to an end. They treat, not of the corner of a nursery or a play- ground, but of the world at large, and life in per- spective of forces visible and invisible of Life, Death, and Immortality. For causes obvious to the student of early myths, they foster sympathy with nature, and no class of child-literature has done so much to inculcate the love of animals. They cultivate the Imagination, that great gift which time and experience lead one more and mpre ...
