Presented by Priscilla Howe

In the 19th century, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm - known as the Brothers Grimm - traveled Europe collecting folktales, most of which were never intended for children. Why did the Grimm brothers document odd stories, such as The Six Swans, Maid Maleen, and Nixie in the Millpond? This talk explores the story of the Brothers Grimm and their folktales, and discusses why collecting these stories can be important for understanding a community's values and fears.
