Jacob Grimm


One half from the Brothers Grimm, he and his sibling Wilhelm co-wrote fairytales such as for example Hansel and Gretel and Snow White colored. His best-known functions consist of Kinder-und Hausmärchen (Grimms’ Fairy Stories) and Deutsche Mythologie. A mentioned philologist and a mythologist, he also released the Deutsches Wörterbuch, a thorough German dictionary. He went to the University or college of Marburg, where he analyzed legislation and became influenced by background and viewpoint. He released his earliest function, Über den altdeutschen Meistergesang, in 1811. He trained at the University or college of Berlin from 1840. He by no means wedded, and he resided for a while with his sibling and literary collaborator Wilhelm. He published Snow White as well as the Seven Dwarfs, which Walt Disney modified right into a now-classic cartoon film in 1937.
