Introduction
  • The Brothers Grimm are Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm,
    German professors best known for publishing
    collections of fairy tales
  • In 19th century, the Holy Roman Empire had just
    met its fate, and Germany was an area of hundreds
    of principalities and small or mid-sized
    countries
  • The major unifying factor for the German people
    of the time was a common language. There was as
    yet no significant German literary history
  • So part of what motivated the brothers in their
    writings and in their lives was the desire to
    help create a German identity

Part I. Life and work
  • In 1812, the brothers published a collection of
    authentic German fairy tales they had gathered in
    a volume titled as Kinder- und Hausmärchen
    ("Children's and Household Tales"). They
    published a second volume in 1814, as well as
    many further editions during their lifetimes
  • Along with the original German works, many
    originally French tales entered the Grimms
    collection
  • The Grimms rewrote the stories to suit what was
    considered appropriate for the time, especially
    when the folk tales often could be quite sexually
    explicit

    14th century in La finta nonna (The False
