Grimm's Fairy Stories

release date: Apr 28, 2021
Grimm's Fairy Stories
During the late eighteenth century, after centuries of cultural stagnation, Germany experienced a cultural renaissance, which brought with it a pride in all things German. The fairy tales were the Grimms'' contribution to that flowering. Theirs remains one of the largest, and certainly the most famous, of national collections. Among the best-known stories are "Hansel and Gretel," "Snow White," "The Golden Goose," "The Goose Girl," "Rumplestiltskin," "The Frog Prince," "The Juniper Tree," and "Snow White and Rose Red," and these and many others have become the unquestioned property of childhood in the Western world. In many instances, popular children''s books quickly become dated or are crowded into the background by more recent books, but Grimm''s Fairy Tales remains as popular as when it was first published. New editions of single stories or of the whole collection continue to appear every year. The term fairy tale is used both for children''s stories that have been created and transmitted orally and for literary stories such as those by Hans Christian Andersen, which imitate the folktale form. The stories of the Brothers Grimm are genuine folktales and as such have certain characteristics. They are inevitably short, they involve obvious parallels and repetitions in structure and language, descriptions are brief and stylized, characters are obvious stereotypes, the setting in place and time is usually vague and generalized, animals can talk, and magic is commonplace. Because they are so stylized, very little practice is needed to learn to tell any folktale effectively. The Grimms refined the language of the stories extensively in the course of the seven editions that were published in their lifetimes, but the fact that the stories remain highly tellable shows their essentially oral nature.

The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm

release date: Oct 13, 2016
The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm
When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children''s and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms'' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes''s introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms'' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

Household Stories by the Brothers Grimm
Book Excerpt: called them to consider themselves prisoners, and to deliver up the sack, or be cut in pieces."Prisoners, say you?" said the man who could blow, "suppose you first have a little dance together in the air," and holding one nostril, and blowing through the other, he sent the regiments flying head over heels, over the hills and far away. But a sergeant who had nine wounds and was a brave fellow, begged not to be put to so much shame. And the blower let him down easily, so that he came to no harm, and he bade him go to the king and tell him that whatever regiments he liked to send more should be blown away just the same. And the king, when he got the message, said,"Let the fellows be; they have some right on their side." So the six comrades carried home their treasure, divided it among them, and lived contented till they died.CLEVER GRETHELTHERE was once a cook called Grethel, who wore shoes with red heels, and when she went out in them she gave herself great airs, and thoughRead More

Teutonic Mythology -

Teutonic Mythology -
It is impossible in the short space at our disposal to do more than announce the appearance of the second volume of Mr. Stallybrass''s translation of this world-renowned work. It is not merely a collection of folklore -- though in that respect it is a wonderful repository -- it is, at the same time, a system of careful comparative criticism. The student who will follow Grimm''s facts and mark his method may regard himself as initiated into the doctrine of comparative mythology, a science which has made such rapid strides since his day. And yet, so thoroughly and with such force of insight and refinement of poetic sympathy did Grimm lay the foundations, that the latest investigator must in I great measure follow his lines. No subject is omitted. Birds, horses, trees, winds, storms, giants, the Creation -- the very titles would extend to a long article. We must in content ourselves with a general tribute mean while, and the following short extract, which will suffice to show Mr. Stallybrass''s careful style of translation, and the inveterate symbolism or deeply fantastic allegory which lay at the basis of all nature-myths. ''There is a beautiful fancy in the Edda, of seven-and-twenty Valkyrs riding through the air, and when their horses shake themselves, the dew, dropping out of their manes on the deep valleys, and hail on the lofty trees, is a sign of a fruitful year. So morning dew falls on the earth each day from the foaming bit of the Hrim-fasi (dew-mane).... Antiquity referred all the phenomena of nature to higher powers. The people in Bavaria call a dark raincloud "Anel mit der Langen" (granny with her ley); in Bohemia, light clouds are babky (grannies). When mountain mist is rising, the Esthonians says, "The Old One is putting his fire out;" our people ascribe it to animals at least: "The hare is boiling [his supper], the fox is bathing, brewing, '' &c. The Scythians explained drifting snow as flying feathers (Herod, iv. 31), and our people see in the flakes the feathers out of the goddess''s bed or goose.'' Mr. Stallybrass''s notes are to the point -- valuable and compact. --The British Quarterly Review, Volumes 78

Grimms' Fairy Tales by Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm Illustrated

Grimms' Fairy Tales by Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm Illustrated
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were two of 10 children from their mother Dorothea (née Zimmer) and father Philipp Wilhelm Grimm. Philipp was a highly regarded district magistrate in Steinau an der Straße, about 50 km from Hanau. Jacob and Wilhelm were sent to school for a classical education once they were of age, while their father was working. They were very hard-working pupils throughout their education. They followed in their father''s footsteps and started to pursue a degree in law, and German history. However, in 1796, their father died at the age of 44 from pneumonia. This was a tragic time for the Grimms because the family lost all financial support and relied on their aunt, Henriette Zimmer, and grandfather, Johann Hermann Zimmer. At the age of 11, Jacob was compelled to be head of the household and provide for his family. After downsizing their home because of financial reasons, Henriette sent Jacob and Wilhelm to study at the prestigious high school, Lyzeum, in Kassel. In school, their grandfather wrote to them saying that because of their current situation, they needed to apply themselves industriously to secure their future welfare. Shortly after attending Lyzeum, their grandfather died and they were again left to themselves to support their family in the future. The two became intent on becoming the best students at Lyzeum, since they wanted to live up to their deceased father. They studied more than twelve hours a day and established similar work habits. They also shared the same bed and room at school. After four years of rigorous schooling, Jacob graduated head of his class in 1802. Wilhelm contracted asthma and scarlet fever, which delayed his graduation by one year although he was also head of his class. Both were given special dispensations for studying law at the University of Marburg. They particularly needed this dispensation because their social standing at the time was not high enough to have normal admittance. University of Marburg was a small, 200-person university where most students were more interested in activities other than schooling. Most of the students received stipends even though they were the richest in the state. The Grimms did not receive any stipends because of their social standing; however, they were not upset by it since it kept the distractions away
