About the Author

Nascidos em Hanau, no Grão-Ducado de Hesse, na Alemanha, Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm (1785-1863) e Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786-1859) eram filhos do jurista Philipp Grimm e Dorothea Grimm e receberam formação religiosa na Igreja Calvinista Reformada. Enquanto folcloristas, filólogos e estudiosos da mitologia alemã, pesquisaram e documentaram narrativas maravilhosas diretamente a tradição oral europeia, reunindo histórias que, dentro de poucas décadas, ganharam o mundo e é sucesso até hoje entre os mais diversos públicos e culturas.
Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786 - 1859) was a German author, the younger of the Brothers Grimm. Wilhelm's character was a complete contrast to that of his brother. As a boy, he was strong and healthy, but while growing up he suffered a long and severe illness which left him weak the rest of his life. He had a less comprehensive and energetic mind than his brother and he had less of the spirit of investigation, preferring to confine himself to some limited and definitely bounded field of work. He utilized everything that bore directly on his own studies and ignored the rest. These studies were almost always of a literary nature. Wilhelm took great delight in music, for which his brother had but a moderate liking and he had a remarkable gift of story-telling. He was, accordingly, much sought in society, which he frequented much more than his brother.

This rich and valuable edition brilliantly showcases the brothers' storytelling acumen, and reinforces their tales as timeless for both children and for scholars.
[Tatar's] edition is the one I would recommend.--Joan Acocella an expert on folklore and mythology. Her annotations are unparalleled.--Pamela Paul
