Chéri Vausé's curator insight, November 18, 2014 10:05 AM

I recall the bloody incident of lopping off toes in the Cinderella story as a child. Grimm did have a bit of gore back then, too... a hundred years ago when these stories were read to me. Not all of it was excised like the retellings today. These stories were originally told to teach valuable lessons to children, to frighten them to be good and do what they were told by their parents. They also kept children from going into certain places where they could be harmed. If your parents told you that a ghost, or a troll, or some kind of an evil presence was in there, wouldn't you stay away? Most children would. Only a few adventurous children might.

 

It should be interesting reading, and very telling about how much the world has changed, and how cynical we've become by neutering everything into nonexistence. The power of the stories lies in the idea that horrible things do happen, and all parents want is to keep their children safe from the cruel world.
