Description - Grimms' Fairy Tales by Grimm Brothers

Grimms' Fairy Tales have entertained children and adults for the past two centuries, and have become part of our common heritage. These stories about Tom Thumb, Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin and the Frog Prince stimulate the imagination and the heart and linger at the back of our minds for a lifetime. They are funny, disturbing, wise and compassionate; they speak of joy and terror, happiness and revenge, love and violence. They remind us of how it felt the first time an adult voice read them to us as we fell asleep and dreamed magical dreams.Illustrated by Arthur Rackham, with an Afterword by Peter Harness.

Author Biography - Grimm Brothers

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born during the 1780s in Hanau, Germany, and studied law at Marburg university. After leaving education, they worked as diplomats and librarians in Kassel. In 1837 they were dismissed from their professorships at the University of Gottingen for refusing to swear allegiance to the new King of Hanover, but were later invited to join the Academy in Berlin, by Frederick William IV of Prussia, where they remained for the rest of their lives. Individually, and as a collaborative team, the brothers were two of the greatest scholars that Germany has produced. Aside from their folktales, they produced many different volumes of research, as well as anthologies of verse and song, and two of Germany's most important linguistic texts, the Deutsche Grammatik (German grammar) and the Deutsche Worterbuch (German dictionary). Wilhelm died in 1859, at the age of 73, and Jacob died in 1863, at the age of 78.
