Why Are The Grimms' Fairy Tales So Violent?
"The Brothers saw themselves as faithful recorders of a living German tradition. They wanted to preserve these stories in their true and exact form. ... The violence of the folktales is part of their power. The Brothers Grimm understood this fact. They wanted to tap into that power. They thought that the tales would revitalize a German people fallen on hard times."
