Dr. Bill Presents GRIM(M) TALES (online)

November 12, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


For over two hundred years, the remarkable stories of the Brothers Grimm have fascinated and sometimes terrified us. Between 1812 and 1857, seven editions of their often dark-hued folk tales–200 stories and 11 legends–found their way into the Western consciousness. This presentation first defines what a folk tale is and then explores the meticulous research that Jacob and Wilhelm undertook to accomplish their goal of collecting significant stories from around Europe; their accomplishments have created the great archetypes for much modern literature, sociology, and psychology.
