Clever Maids: The Secret History of The Grimm Fairy Tales
Valerie Paradiz (au)
Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm, collectors & editors of more than 200 folk stories, were major German intellects of the 19th century,. The traditional image of the two brothers traveling the countryside, transcribing tales told to them by ordinary peasants, is far from the truth. More than half the fairy tales the Grimm brothers collected were actually contributed by their educated, aristocratic & bourgeois female friends. Set against the backdrop of the chaotic Napoleonic wars & the high years of German romanticism, this book chronicles one of the most fascinating literary enterprises in European history, & brilliantly captures the ways in which fairy tales, with their mythic portrayals of courage, sacrifice, & betrayal, still speak so powerfully to us today.
