The Brothers Grimm: living a fairy tale?

The Brothers Grimm: living a fairy tale? Online

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are world-famous for their fairy tales; less well known is that they did hardly any of the actual interviewing and note-taking themselves. But they were renowned scholars in the fields of history of language and literature; their most famous work is the multi-volume dictionary of the German language. They were involved in political controversies and Wilhelm was even exiled. Find out more about these fascinating siblings in this talk by Rare Books Curator Dr Anette Hagan.
