I think what it is —what makes it so riveting is there's so many mysterious things happening. And that's what all great literature does. It just presents these puzzles and riddles and what is this, you know. It confronts us with things that, you know, we can't explain. But the words will help us to figure things out. So I always use this word in class of hermeneutic puzzles.
That is, we become hermeneuts trying to make sense of the world. And it makes us wiser. And this is why Harry Potter is so great. Because kids are always having to solve the puzzles and figure things out. There's an intellectual challenge in this stuff. Voldemort is called Tom Riddle. And, you know, this is why we get lost in books and absorbed. And Tim Wynne-Jones has this great line about the immersive reading experience, where you are in this world.
You breathe differently, you're kind of underwater. And not only do you learn a lot about that new world, but you discover how your own mind works. And so ultimately you learn about yourself. Yeah, because what is that line you said, that you know, what is it, that it trips pathology and violence trips things in our brain.
And you know, you may have written that even 10 years ago, before we knew now how absolutely true that is. That things light up in our brains and that that being riveted is real, it's physiologically real. And it's great that you use that term lights up, something lights up in our brain. Because, you know, I mean just going back to the beauty and horror that we started with. There may be that darkness and terror, but there's always in stories. There, you know, I guess in Kafka there may not be.
But you know, there is this light and hope and this beauty and sparkle and glitter and dazzle. The hope of redemption. And there's something a little bit interesting to me too, in that we are riveted by all the drama, including the murder, the pathology, the darkness. I notice in myself —and I think this is a pretty common experience —that at some remove from these stories, and Harry Potter is another example of this and certainly these fairy tales —what you remember, I mean your primary sense of those stories is something quite lovely and magical in a good way. I remember taking my kids to see the Star Wars movies when they were really little.
And I mean wars is in the title. But I didn't remember. I mean but it's incredibly, it's war. I mean it starts out with all these really scary soldiers and it's incredibly menacing and violent. And I had completely forgotten that. Yeah, you're, I'm so fascinated by the question of what do we take from a childhood stories and bring into our adult lives?
And at one point, I asked many of my students, what books from childhood they had brought with them to Harvard. And what I was struck by was that often the students didn't really remember much about the story, but there was something in the story —some little talisman.
Some moment, a sentence, something a character does, a detail in a picture sometimes that they bonded with. It was almost like a little souvenir of the tale that they then carried with them into adult life. And you know, when they would think of that —everything with light. We talked about brain sliding up that there was, and some deep connection with your childhood.
And trying to figure that out was always such an interesting exercise. Because inevitably a story grew out of that souvenir. Not necessarily the story from childhood, but a new tale —their own story. And so, you know, again it became a kind of platform for figuring things out in their own lives —in their own daily lives.
I'm Krista Tippett with On Being. Today with folklorist and Grimm Brothers scholar Maria Tatar —exploring what fairy tales work in us, and how we work with them. I'm just following on some of the things we've been talking about also in terms of popular culture. I also do see some very gritty ways right now specific to our time I think. There's also this genre where there's a really intense existential fear. And one of the themes in a lot of these is everything that we think has civilized us is taken away.
And that we are brutalized. And, but I've read you feeling concerned also about some of that going to new extremes that might not be good for us. You know, it's hard, I don't like to be the one preaching a sermon. Because I told you about my childhood experience. So I'm always reluctant to sort of be judgmental. But I must admit that Breaking Bad was my breaking point. That is, that there's some —I remember just seeing —I won't even describe it.
But I thought, OK, that's just too much for me. I have to turn that off, yeah. And Hunger Games I was startled by, because to me, the idea of a book about children killing children was just going to an extreme. It was violating a cultural taboo in a way that was difficult for me. But then there, I read the book and I watched the movie and I thought they were sensational and really fascinating. You know, and I didn't —even though it had crossed a line, Suzanne Collins somehow seemed to have done it in a way that made sense for me.
That you know, there seemed to be a real point to that. And you know, I'm not the one who is looking for a lesson. But you know, we do have a new culture. You know, where there's a lot more is permitted. We don't protect our children as much as we once did. And I guess, you know, I do worry that children today they can see anything.
Yeah, and they know they're not protected. I mean, here's something you wrote: And the shadows are rarely banished by comic relief. Instead of stories about children who struggle to grow up, we have stories about children to struggle to survive. And I have to say that the minute you go into the protectionist mode and you say, you know, we need to draw a line and it shouldn't be anything goes, you just get a lot blowback from people who say, oh you know, you don't give children enough credit.
They're able to navigate this. And also we live in a violent world and therefore children should be, should know that, and all of that. But some of that —I think we haven't been very thoughtful about figuring out, you know, where is that line? Where do we draw it? What responsibilities do we have as adults? But as I say, I always feel uncomfortable and maybe that's why we're not talking about it, because it makes us uncomfortable to be the censors or the editors or the ones who are saying, oh no, oh no, that's too much.
You know, I remember when my son who's now 14 —I think he was probably 12 or 13 when he was reading Hunger Games and really just inhaling it. And I asked him what it was about? I mean I heard other people tell me what it was about. And the first word that came out of his mouth is, it's about poverty. You know, that's not the word other people —I mean it wasn't about children struggling. I mean it was about children struggling, but if this book has him thinking about poverty, well OK.
MPW: okay yeah — I did feel a little tear come to my eye when I thought I might one day be too old for them myself :. Also, that signs in evolution thing will be a good study guide for a debate with my fundamentalist friends :. Rumpelstiltskin used to scare the life out of me as a kid. Thank God Disney turned most of these stories into happy endings or else I would be a seriously disturbed individual by now… Great list :D. The first time they drop stones and follow them back, the next time it is breadcrumbs but those are eaten by birds so they get lost.
So when I went to school and heard the clean version, I was horrified by the lies my teachers were telling the rest of the class. What about the Tailypo? If they could read and interpret these fairy tales in their own way, he believed they would get a greater sense of meaning and purpose.
Bettelheim thought that by engaging with the stories, children would go through emotional growth that would better prepare them for their own lives. He believed that the tales had an organic quality because of having evolved in societies, and that they allowed children to grapple with their darkest fears in symbolic terms. Bettelheim's book is, indeed, excellent in explaining the psychology of children's lives and how classic fairy tales are metaphorical stepping stones that introduce the concepts of pain and loss. Remember, too, that Life was very different when these tales were written; it was hard and harsh, with many living hand to mouth, laboring for the higher classes and having few comforts or dreams that could possibly come true.
Fairy tales had a dark cast as they reflected the lives of those who read them. Children learned early about deceit, disappointment, and the concept of Evil. Reading these stories allowed them to metaphorically face those fears and learn how to cope in their own lives. I liked the list, BTW. It's a retelling of a fairy tale, and is absolutely delicious. If anyone can find a free version, by all means let me know, because I absolutely adore that story, it's at least as good as "American Gods", and that book alone caused me to have an even greater respect for Mr.
Gaiman than I do even for King and Barker. The town of Hamlin in Germany where the story of the Pied Piper is supposed to have been based, was over run by rats this year. I think this list is fantastic! I've never heard of "The Buttercup and the Bluebell. I know there are more fairy tales, but from the sound of these I must have blocked them out :.
What timing. I just read a similar list last night…. I always despised Disney for their need to change fairytales Little Mermaid being the worst of the treatments…. I have been fascinated with it ever since I heard about the true beginnings of them. I guess the same elements can be present in many different stories. Anyhoo, the witch lops off her hair and throws Rapsy out who then has to raise her kids off in nowhere land. The prince, who is tricked to coming up the tower by witchy, gets his just desserts by being pushed out the window and onto some brambles where he gets his eyes scratched out, which for the next couple of months, he wanders around blind till he chances upon where Raps is raising the bundle of joy he left her with.
Oh I love this list. I own the Grimm fairy tales and read Cinderella, too. I was expecting it to be on the list. There were singing birds… just not singing pleasant songs. The one of the step-sisters cut off her big toe and the other part of her heel. They were told on by the birds because the blood was seeping out of the slipper which he used to check the next sister with, who bled in it, then Cinderella….
I also read Rumpelstiltskin in the same book where he slams his foot in the ground and tears himself in half. Hey all! Some of these are truly disturbing… Enjoy! Nice list JFrater, although I have heard the same story about Sleeping Beauty a couple of months ago in our forum. Excellent list Jamie. They were all disturbing in one way or another. All of them creepy; involving death, cannibalism, incest, and dreams NOT coming true unless you mean nightmares.
The Disneyfied versions have their place in the nursery; but once your kids are reading, give them the real ones. Not in the vocabulary, nor in the story-line. Murder, rape, mutilated bodies…. For any of those interested here are some links to the various original versions mentioned. Very interesting stuff! Hopefully these all work for everyone. Repunzle, In a version i read after the prince visted her the first time and was sent away by the witch when she escapes she gives birth to twins, deduce the fact that they didnt do mutch talking on there first meeting.
Nusi Ps Love the list i never heard of the girl without hands it awful!!! This is an awesome list! I was glad someone in the comments mentioned Rapunzel. I love the sex and lies and total violence of fairy tales! How sweet. That really was a very interesting and disturbing list. Though i knew most of them it was still pretty cool. Fairy tales are pretty awesome. But hmm.. Overall, really interesting n cool list frat boy.. I know Disney changes all of these to make them happier, but there ARE some macabre things that go on.
Think about it:. Sound familiar? No one bad in Disney movies just fades away for goes to jail. Probably by falling off something. Though sometimes scary and gruesome, they are were much more interesting than the sanitized versions. Most were the same as, or very similar to, the original versions you detail in the list. I agree with the person who said the evil Stepmother of Hansel and Gretel talked their father into abandoning them getting them lost in the forest since there was not enough for all to eat.
I also agree with some others here. I have never ever heard of 2 — The Girl Without Hands. As a child I read all of the Anderson and Grimm Bros. Tales, in their original forms, and loved them. Of course they were gruesome, but each had a moral. We learned to tell the truth, to act kindly toward others, to share. I like the originals. Bruno Bettelheim…. The Uses of Enchantment. I love that book. I read it for the first time when I was 17, and it helped to shape some of my attitudes towards literature and no doubt affected my work as a writer.
Not without some great effort, at any rate. This forms the basis of a consciousness which results in a more grounded, well-adjusted adult. Again, we tend to find this to be counter-intuitive, but evidence supports the conclusion, and if you think about it, you see why it works this way. Offering up to them only Disney falsehoods and distortions along with, oddly enough, in many Disney films certain moments of violence and tragedy—the perennial loss of the mother, for instance, with no attending explanation or solid basis on which a child can understand this is the equivalent of handing them candy without any greater, substantive food.
Ah… how easily I can still slip into the psycho-speak of my college days. Funny how somebody could write whole papers of stuff like that for a class and then put on a skinny tie and go out barhopping, dancing to Heaven 17 and Cabaret Voltaire, while simultaneously drinking oneself into a stupor AND trying to get laid all at once. And then go right back the next day and write MORE of that same stuff. Very well written, Randall. I responded above to the post about Bettelheim, too, but you did a great job of revealing the consequences of sheltering the kids of today from the "gruesome" fairy tales of yore.
Wow, to imagine these are the happiest stories in the world. Shudder to think what the sad ones are. I remember having to translate Grimm Fairy Tales in high school German class. They were all more er…. Did anybody see this version of Snow White, with Sigorney Weaver as the wicked witch? It was quite good and true to the original story. I love the list Jamie! But then, I always love stuff like this, where the raw underbelly of our world is laid bare for all to see.
I read somewhere that little Red Riding Hood was cut up into peices and baked into a pie by the wolf. The wolf had intended it to be eaten by her rescuers. Prior to that, the wolf, dressed as the grandmother, tries to seduce little Red. Snow White and Goldilocks are proper names in these cases and the first letter should be capital. Sleeping beauty I am leaving as is since this was to describe her.
Geronimo 21 We tell these tales to our children because they also include a moral to the story — if not obvious in the telling of the tale, we discuss with them what the story means to them and to us. Can be a great learning experience for them, and keeps their attention throughout the story. So much incest in these fairy tales!!! All these fathers who want to sleep with their daughters! Was that a common occurance at the time? I post way too much info. How dare I subject you all to these short novels. The Wizard of Oz is kind of a modern fairy tale. This list kills me. I knew all of them, and have a couple things to add, so I guess it was right up my alley.
In The Girl Without Hands version I read, the Devil wanted her hands chopped off because she had wept all over them, then she wept all over her wrists and he gave up. You could include the tale of Undine. The prince kills them to save her. There is a website that has many of these stories and variations of them posted but I forget the address.
In the book it only says that she shares his bed with him… But I guess that it is a demonstration of the innocence of a childs mind:. Clearly one of the bored and deeply unimaginative teenagers who cruise around this site from time to time has, once again, hijacked my username. Seriously, something needs to be done about this. And were theyy meant for children or adults? Mom — goddamn it woman i was trying to keep it PG! Most of the Grimm and Perrault stories were based on this collection. Randall: I have modified the name on that post. If it happens again I will deal with it more fully.
Many actors approaching this piece are surprised to hear for the first time the part of the Cinderella story where the stepsisters attempt to make the shoes fit by a little elective surgery. The Prince is fooled that the shoe fits, but not the birds! Blood in shoe, I never heard of that before. Fairy tales were written for adults. The most famous authors although several stores were simply collected, not written are the Brothers Grimm, Hans C Anderson, and Perrault- all men, but the many of the stories originated with women.
They were passed on or written down by women who wanted to break out of the box beauty and the beast, for example has two early versions, both traceable to french women. Actually the Pied Piper fairy tale is based on actual events. There was a guy who went from village to village recruiting children during the time of the crusades to march to africa because upon reaching the beaches of Spain, the mediterranian sea would part apparently to do their own crusade and win.
However once he got there the sea did not part and he tried to get a boat instead, the merchants agreed, but instead of taking them for what they planned they took the kids into slavery instead. Your style is distinctive, no one could copy it, not for one sentence. Your friends, and you have many, support you all the way. Wicked is a companion to the Wizard of Oz, written by Gregory Macguire. The musical is written by Steven Schwartz. Into the Woods is a mashup of fairy tales written by Steven Sondheim and based on another book….
This has officially become my favorite list. What the moral was to that particular tale, I cannot imagine. Im really quite glad ive never heard of No. Every version seem to be quite disturbing. I think a film should be made on these.. Want a real sick one? Try Donkeyskin aka thousand skins. Love the list! BTW- studied fairy tales in school and Donkeyskin was my favorite! Dont know if that makes me bad or what lol. I always loved the girl with no hands too. While I was putting this list together I realized that aside from the bad bits, fairy tale lands would have been quite nice to live in — they are a far cry from the big brother ridden societies so many of us inhabit these days!
Nice list. Amazing to see all these tales we thought were so cute and sweet really had some hardcore themes to them. A lot of these would make great horror movies. Stricken with guilt for being the only survivor, she is commited to an insane assylum where she has this psychic trip through a demented wonderland. Rumor has it they are going to make a movie based off of it. The end of the orignal little mermaid is actually really depressing. In the first half several fairy tales Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel that I can think of all interweave and are resolved pretty much as sanitised standard.
I have seen a video of the Broadway production and also a live performance in Sydney. When the Broadway production was telecast in Australia, the presenter read the quote from Bruno Bettelheim that Rusty supplied at comment Its a play about a story writer in a totalitarian country who is being interregated for the gruesome content of his fairytales. The stories in it or amazing but quite gruesome indeed. Must read comments before posting.
These fairy tales are a moral base to learn from as a child. Most parents would not talk to their children about the issues in these stories so they are an important resource for young minds. Bring it back!!! Talk about one of the all time greatest dummy spits, can you imagine the headlines:. Another very entertaining list jfrater! Are you on some kind of list- making steroids or something? Randall, I appreciated your thoughts on explaining how these types of tales would be appropriate for kids.
Thinking back when I was a kid myself I remember horsing around with friends and pretending to do gruesome stuff to each other including things mentioned in some of theses tales without the help of reading them in the first place. Maybe these writers were just giving the kids what they wanted. I say we all need to reinstate the original stories to tell our kiddies before nighty-night. You know,… to set them straight. I was lucky enough to have a book of these goodies that my great grandmother gave me as a child and look at me now!
IIRC, the fairy tale where the evildoer is punished by being drug around in a barrel full of nails is Falada.

The Brothers Grimm have a statue of them in Hanau Germany. One of them standing and one of them sitting. It is said that at New Years on Midnight that they switch positions. I already knew the Cinderella grossness, but for the rest I was mostly unaware of the awesome original stories. Sleeping Beauty made me laugh so hard too. Before and between my classes this morning I read up about the Grimms and Andersen. The Grimms collected their stories, and tried to maintain the original style of oral tradition.
His seem to be based in cities more than the Grimms, which seem more to rural. As their volumes were reprinted, various changes were made, including changing several mothers into step-mothers. Also, what about The Red Shoes? Very good list! I am a very moralistic person and I think part of the reason is due to reading or having fairy tales read to me as a child.
Times have changed so much. Parents try to protect their children from the horrific things that make up fairy tales, but look around us. It seems to be most of those kids that are clueless, getting into trouble, and just want to lie around and do nothing. Not only the fairy tales! That has always confused me a bit… Does he want to eat it? I must say… Listverse is kicking ass the past few days! Rock on with your bad self, Jamie :. Even as a little kid, I thought the Disney movies were lame.
You always knew how it would end. Maybe when they are older ;. When I was growing up, we had a very old fairy tale book. Anyone know what it might be? I have to ask, what the hell was wrong with Hans Christian Andersen?! The Little Match Girl freezes to death, the Little Mermaid dies miserably, the toy soldier melts in the fire. Awesome list once again Jamie! I absolutely love the Disney-fied versions sorry Randall! Again, both amazing. Gregory Maguire has actually written a few books that are a different perspective or different version of well-known stories.
Morbid, awesome stuff.

JFrater, as a possible future list you could do all the different versions of worldwide Cinderella stories. Catskinella, a story told in the black communities of the 19th century, about a girl who in trying to get out of a marriage she does not want, asks for a dress made from the skin of a single cat. The Chinese version about the beautiful Yeh-Shen, who has no fairy godmother, but the bones of her only friend, a magic fish.
The story of the Many Furred Creature, where the kings daughter refuses to be married except to the someone she cares for, so she blackens her face with soot, and works in the kitchens, only to come out to three balls in her three dresses, one like the moon, one like the stars, and one like the sun. There are many different versions of that one including Allerleirauh, Northvegr, and in a way Catskinella, which I mentioned above.
Or the story of Nomi and the Magic Fish, a Zulu girl starved by her stepmother, is given food by a magical fish. The stepmother finds out, and kills the fish. The bones of the fish tell her to throw them into the chiefs garden, who promptly decrees that he will marry the girl who can pick them up. Nomi is the only one who can. Or of Rhodopis, a story written by Strabo two thousand years ago. And there is the story Benizara and Kakezara of the Japanese girl who uses magic and her brains to win over a noblemans heart, not only with her beauty but also her superb poetry.
Even the story of the Indian boy who cares for a cow after his father dies and brother leaves, and is rewarded with beautiful golden hair, of which a princess finds a strand of and searches to marry him, in How the Cowherd Found a Bride. This is a great list, however, I think the actual origins when known should be cited for all of them and the descriptions could be a bit more accurate rather than just a cut and paste from a wikipedia article.
Pretty fucked up. Also, instead of watching the musical Wicked, which is decent but not quite brilliant, the musical Into the Woods by Sondheim interweaves many of the original fairytales as an allegory for the complexities of the human condition. Idreno: there is not a single line copied and pasted from wikipedia in this article — it is completely original. But thanks for presuming the worst — always a pleasant trait in a person. Randall- i looked at your post at i think 72 and i gotta say, that is one of the best explanations for why something is the way it is on the site.
Jfrater, this is now one of my favorite lists, I really enjoyed it. My grandma died on Sunday so I need to escape my thoughts and this helped. I am sorry to hear about your grandmother — you have my condolences. Last time I visited this list about 24 hrs ago there were only 9 entries, glad to see you found a tenth! Re: the fur vs. From out of the ten listed, I knew 8. Hungarian cartoon films are several times better than any of the Disney productions. I recommend you them. It has most of the above tales plus histories of the stories.
The original tales are written in the english language of the time, which is also fascinating. Wow, thats pretty creepy, espacially Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel! Although, I must say, I have never even heard of The girl without hands….. I had a yellow book once called Grimms Faerie tales… alot of the tales in their are more along the lines of the original, I remember the cinderella oneand such.
Though the one I remember the most was blue light about an old soldier who smokes a magic pipe. He gets thrown in prison and on the day of his execution he asks for one last puff and the whole town is slaughtered…. Thank you for a truly interesting, and twisted, story. The easiest way to avoid identity theft on a forum is to not allow anonymous postings.
It also stops most immature postings that do nothing but insult. For those registrants who do abuse the posting system, you ban their IP number. It has been done before. Thank you Callie. That appeals to my admittedly dirty mind, and conjures images of Walt Disney rotating like a top! If anyone enjoyed reading these you should consider purchasing the Grimms Fairytales book… It is filled with many of the popular fairy tales like Cinderella which were originally written by the Grimm brothers. Might I add that some stories are pretty gruesome!
When his latest wife finds out, she manages to escape with help from her family. Although I think there is a version where Bluebeard eats her too. Finally her daddy gets fed up and commands her to marry the next man who walks through the door. What does he get for his trouble? He gets turned into stone. Well, somehow, his statue gets anthropomophized, and he tells the king that if he would like to get his old Faithful John back, all he has to do is cut his twin boys in half and smear the blood on he statue.
And what does the king do? Cuts his boys in half and smears the blood on the statue, of course. So they stick the kids in a trunk and torture the wife when she comes home by telling her that the king killed his sons to bring back John. And for some reason, the robbers have a witch with them. So when the brothers get home, they get turned into the birds of the title, and now the sister has to find a way to save them.
But whatever. I remember reading a snow white picture book-all the characters were dogs and in the end the queen was made to dance on hot coals until she died! Good, wholesome, traumatizing times! Skydiver — this comment brings up an oft mentioned topic that is based on a misunderstanding. Instead she got her feet, but walking on them were like walking on a thousand knives-excrutiatingly painful! And that was how she had to live out the rest of her days. I dont know if its been posted yet. Although its not a fairy tale only a nursery rhyme. I was disappointed with myself because I thought I knew at least all the famous fairy tales.
Well I had a happy childhood with my fairy tale books and I intend to keep it that way with my kids. Interesting though…. Pingback: Learning Things. One of my favorite lists : But I think the peid piper or sleeping beauty should be at the top. I have a book at home with all the old endings. Im going to go home and reread these. And Hansel and Gretal did use stones and then breadcrumbs which were eaten by birds.
They were lost and stumbled upon the witches house made of gingerbread and candy. Just so everyone knows, the ring around the rosie song is a common misconception. Warning: they are not your Disney stories. They were all collectors of folk tales in their respective countries and with each story having a myriad variations homogenised them in their collections. But I still enjoyed your list. You're right about the other ppl not writing theirs, though. Alice in Wonderland is supposed to be Alice all high form smoking or something and is a psycho wielding a knife.
In the original Little Mermaid it is true that she pays for her leg by having every step fell like she is stepping on knives. The moral in the story actually is that children shlould be kind to their parents. Nixx, the fairytale you remember is The Tinder-Box, a soldier get a migic tinder-box from a witch — by cutting of her head — , with the tinder-box he can summon three huge dogs.
He gets the dog bring the princess to him in the nights when she is sleeping, she just remember having stange dreams about a soldier kissing her — who knows what else he was doing to the sleeping princess! When he is discovered he is sentenced to be hanged, but he is granted one last wish. The soldier makes himself king and makes the princess marry him!
Other than that, fantastic! Got to prefer the originals to the Disney versions, no cheesy singing for a start!! They all die when this girl screams. Called Hush that is a creep-taculer representation of it. Eve — as has been mentioned before, ive gotten to know the hansel and gretel story exactly as recalled by Niels Toft.
According to this, the siblings were adults who tried to steal the gingerbread recipe of an old lady who lived in the woods. Since she didnt want to give them the recipe it was the best gingerbread around, and hansel and gretel were also connected to a bakery , they first threatened and then really killed her. Ironically, they never found the recipe and were put on trial for murder afterwards. Sorry, but your site might be quite interesting, the taint of L.
Choose your advertisers with care or not, none of my business. If you tell me where it was I can ensure it stops appearing. There is scarcely a more gruesome fairy tale. There is serious child abuse, leading to a murder by of course the evil stepmother, then the murdered boy gets revenge after his reincarnation as a bird by dropping a millstone on his evil stepmother.
Loved this list! Or you will get raped. Or eaten hahaha love it. I have a book called Young Years, which has most, if not all, of the stories mentioned in the original list and in the comments. It has The Goose Girl, which is the one with Falada.
Falada was a talking horse, not the main character. I knew about the stepmother in her red-hot shoes, the sisters mangling themselves trying to get a man, and Rumplestiltskin. There are also a lot of Giant stories out there that are pretty gruesome. All the cannibalism, etc. Jack the Giant Killer was always one of my favorites. When the man set off he had to travel through the woods to get to the docks, but a pack of wolves attacked and made the man lost. He helped himself to the food on the diner table.
Since the mans ship probably left dock with out him he thought he could at least bring his youngest daughter her rose. But when he cut the rose the beast came out and attacked him. I only wanted to give my daughter this rose. When the man returned the eldest daughters got angry that they did not receive the gifts they wanted. Her father lead the way back to the castle where the beast waited. Through the months the beast tried and tried to woo the girl but what ever he did it was the exact opposite of what she wanted.
I loved it.

As i started reading it, i noticed the similarities. When I reached the main body of the story, my terror grew with every word, leading to disbelief and a new-found respect for the author. Really intense. Pingback: Are Fairytales too Scary for Children? They are all killed when boiling oil is poured into the drums on them. And Jack and Jill story where one of them cracks their head open? Like wow even without their original tales being told you can still see how some of these stories are pretty gruesome!
Out the children go. Could also be the plague and how children suffered the worst — but everyone knows that reference. It really stays with the Hans Christian story, knife, foam and all. Joss — thanks for the headsup. Okay, you want to hear gruesome?
Pingback: Who kissed Sleeping Beauty??? The book is based on the theme of kinds of beauty, and aesthetic beauty as a curse, definitely worth reading.
