Favorite Fairy Tales - The Brothers Grimm
Mistymented1 on 10/31/2008
|Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their first collection of fairy tales in 1812. The first volumes were heavily criticized because, although they were released as "Children's Tales", they were not regarded as suitable for children, due to subject matter.|
The Brother's removed much of the sexual references, (such as Rapunzel's betraying the prince by asking why her clothing no longer fit, and thus revealing her pregnancy), but in many respects, they increased the violence, particularly towards punishing villains.
How many of these tales can you recall?
Good luck and enjoy!
I opted to use the translated titles in this Kerblunk,of which mostly were obtained at the following site:http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/grimmtales.html
