Paradiz (PhD, German studies) debunks the myth that Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm collected their fairy tales from German peasants. In the context of German romanticism and nationalism, French literary influences, and period attitudes toward women, she credits heretofore unheralded female family friends for contributing such classic stories with motifs of victimized females as "Red Riding Hood" and "Bluebeard. " Illustrations are reprinted from the 1886 Macmillan edition of Household Stories from the Collection of the Brothers Grimm. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
