The Hard Facts of the Grimms' Fairy Tales

The Hard Facts of the Grimms' Fairy Tales Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Murder, mutilation, cannibalism, infanticide, and incest: the darker side of classic fairy tales figures as the subject matter for this intriguing study of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm's Nursery and Household Tales. This updated and expanded second edition includes a new preface and an appendix containing new translations of six tales, along with commentary by Maria Tatar. Throughout the book, Tatar skillfully employs the tools not only of a psychoanalyst but also of a folklorist, literary critic, and historian to examine the harsher aspects of these stories. She presents new interpretations of the powerful stories in this worldwide best-selling book. Few studies have been written in English on these tales, and none has probed their allegedly happy endings so thoroughly.

Synopsis:

Discusses how the Grimms censored fairly tales, examines the violence and cruelty found in the stories, and suggests an approach to interpreting them.
