Boy did Disney get it wrong! The fairy tales, as originally told by the Brothers Grimm, were not about sweetness and light, they were dark and bloody stories meant to frighten or teach. When the brothers compiled their first edition, the stories were even darker still! The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm is a reprint of the Complete First Edition of those stories. Tales of children slaughtering each other, stories about famine… and long-haired Rapunzel gets pregnant!
