Shawn Jarvis publishes anthology
Monday, December 31, 2012
Shawn Jarvis, professor of German and chair of the foreign languages department, has compiled a 368-page hardcover book of 19th century fairy tales written by German women writers. “In the Realm of Wishes” (“Im Reich der Wünsche”) is a collection of tales with classic motifs.
“The history of the German fairy tale is being rewritten in this anthology,” according to C.H. Beck publishing house of Germany. “Its publication coincides with the 200th anniversary of the publication of Grimms’ fairy tales.”
Jarvis credits her husband, Roland Specht-Jarvis, also a St. Cloud State professor of German, for his help in gathering photographic and archival materials for the book.
