Fairy Tales by Brothers Grimm - Volume 4
The Brothers Grimm began collecting folk tales around 1807, in response to a wave of awakened interest in German folklore that followed the publication of Ludwig Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano's folksong collection "The Youth's Magic Horn". By 1810 the Grimms produced a manuscript collection of several dozen tales, which they had recorded by inviting storytellers to their home and transcribing what they heard. Although they were said to have collected tales from peasants, many of their informants were middle-class or aristocratic, recounting tales they had heard from their servants. Several of the informants were of Huguenot ancestry and told tales that were French in origin. Some scholars have theorized that certain elements of the stories were "purified" for the brothers, who were devout Christians.
The current volume has 15 stories, and you can download volume 1, 2 and 3 all for free too.
