The Complete Works
A complete guide to their lives & achievements
Here is an amazing collection of the best-loved fairy stories in
the world, gathered by linguists and literary scholars, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm – born just over a year apart in the 1780s in Hanau, Germany. The culmination of their intensive research – after many years of recording and writing – was first published in 1812 as Children’s and Household Tales, translating oral tradition into a literary masterpiece. For the next forty years or so, the collection was revised and augmented.
