Students will study Grimms’ fairy tales; their collection and publication by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the context of 19th century German Romanticism, and their relevance to modern social commentary. Reading the texts in English translation, students will gain an understanding of the content and structure of the tales, of their cultural components, and their function through time.
The Complete First Edition: The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, translated & edited by Jack Zipes, illustrated by Andrea Dezsö, Princeton University Press, Princeton, 2014
