The Brothers Grimm

Long before J.K. Rowling, there were Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm-two young men from Germany who loved a good story. The Grimm brothers never expected to be storytellers for children. But today, their fairy tales are read and loved in over 160 languages.

Once Upon a Time

Jacob and Wilhelm were introduced to folktales-traditional stories people memorized and told again and again-as university students. The brothers loved these stories of adventure and magic. Soon they began to collect traditional folktales from storytellers in Germany. Many of these tales were similar to stories told in France, Italy, Japan, and other countries. Between 1812 and 1814, the Grimm brothers published two books. These included stories like Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood.

Grimms’ tales reflected traditional life and beliefs in Germany. For example, forests are common in Germany, and this image appears often in the Grimms’ stories. For medieval Germans, the forest was a dangerous place. In Grimms’ fairy tales, witches, talking animals, and other magical beings live in the forest. People’s lives change forever when they visit this place.

Children’s Stories?

Although Grimms’ fairy tales are now considered children’s stories, the brothers first wrote them primarily for adults. Many of the early tales were dark and a little scary.

Later, the brothers changed the text of some of the original stories. They “softened” many of the tales and also added drawings. This made them more appropriate for children. Like the early tales, though, each of today’s stories still has a moral: work hard, be good, and listen to your parents.
