Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were German authors who made it their mission to collect and publish the folklore of their native land, Germany. We have all heard some version of the stories they collected, be it Snow White or Cinderella, but the stories the brothers originally
recorded are very different to the ones we are familiar with. The original folktales were far darker, and used to scare children, teaching them valuable lessons. It’s safe to say that the original stories are a far cry from the depictions of these fairy tales nowadays, as the stories thankfully no longer scare children.
