Keyano College Lecture Series- Grimm and Grimmer: The Dark Side of Fairy Tales Nov 15 2013

Manslaughter, mayhem, cannibalism, incest, betrayal, infanticide, and sexual assault: no, these aren’t episodes from the latest HBO series, but rather typical plot elements from the tales of the Brothers Grimm. The stories come from a worldwide tradition that stretches back to earliest times, and these traditional tales reveal some of the deepest anxieties and preoccupations of human life. Are these stories for children? Step over to the dark side of the nursery and explore why Grimm is grimmer than you thought.
