Collection of Literary Fairy Tales "Winter Tales", 1913, by Kārlis Skalbe (1879−1945)

If Rainis (1865–1929) is Latvia’s most esteemed writer, Kārlis Skalbe would have a strong claim to be regarded as its best-loved. He was a deceptively complex writer – known as “the king of fairy tales” (pasaku karalis), although he was not a writer of fairy tales in exactly the way that most Western readers would understand the term. The 76 strange and beautiful tales he wrote during his life are especially close to the Latvian heart, but he was also an accomplished poet.
