Grimms` Bad Girls and Bold Boys The Moral and Social Vision of the Tales Paperback Jul 1 1989 By Ruth B. Bottigheimer, Jacob Grimm, and Wilhelm Grimm
In this book -- the first in more than fifty years to treat the entire body of Grimms' Tales -- Ruth B. Bottigheimer provides a thorough analysis of the stories' content, focusing in particular on the matter of gender. By combining a sociohistorical examination of the stories with close scrutiny of the language in which they are told, Bottigheimer reveals coherent patterns of motif, plot, and image and brings new insight into the moral and social vision of the collection.
