We all know Grimms’ fairy tales – or at least we like to think we do. The stories of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, first published in 1812, are cloaked in a romantic myth that reflects our own wishful thinking about the origin of the tales but has actually little to do with reality.

Using examples from the Grimms’ manuscripts and early editions, Wayne State University professor Dr. Donald Haase pulls away the curtain and reveals the truth about the Grimms’ fairy-tale collection and how the stories in it became the famous tales that we know and tell today.
