Introduction

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 work1

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

  • Little Red was told by French peasants in the 14th century; in La finta nonna (The False Grandmother), an early Italian version, the young girl uses her own cunning to beat the wolf in the end

  • The earliest known printed version was known as Le Petit Chaperon Rouge; in 1697, by Charles Perrault

  • Two separate German versions used by the Grimms: the first by Jeanette Hassenpflug (1791-1860) and the second by Marie Hassenpflug (1788-1856)

Part iii snow white

Part III. Snow White

  • In the traditional Brothers Grimm version of this tale, Snow White is born to a queen, who dies shortly after giving birth

  • The king takes a new wife who is beautiful but very proud. She possesses a magic mirror, to whom she would often ask "Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?", and to which the mirror would always reply, "You are“

  • But one day when she asks her mirror, it responds, "Queen, you're the fairest where you are, but Snow White is more beautiful by far"

  • Less well known to the general public outside Germany is the Brothers Grimm's work on a German dictionary still considered as the standard reference for German etymology
