Tree Stories

Trees have starred in stories ever since Ovid described the nymph Daphne’s metamorphosis into a laurel, and the landscape of literature has long been enlivened by wild woodlands, sacred groves, and fertile orchards. This delightful collection ranges from Ovid to Austen and from Robin Hood’s Sherwood Forest (via Thomas Love Peacock’s Maid Marian) to Washington Irving’s ‘The Legend of Sleepy Hollow’. Here are forest-haunted fairy tales both classic (the Brothers Grimm) and inventively retold (Angela Carter).
