Little Red Riding Hood, 1810

Here’s a nice little piece from the British Library on a chapbook version of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ (Neil Gaiman’s favourite fairy tale–see my previous post). The BL’s website is, incidentally, an excellent resource for literary researchers, with many critical essays and analyses of items in their fabulous collection.

One Response to Little Red Riding Hood, 1810

  1. Lucy Northenra says:

    I prefer the versions such as this (derived from Perrault) where LRRH gets eaten (what does that say about me I wonder?). I just think they are more authentic and it is obviously written as a cautionary tale. I have looked at the 1810 Grimm which this article links to at the BL recently for my Pied Piper article…very special to handle and read.
