Glimpsing the Grimms | Talk by Chris Brooks
Who were the Brothers Grimm and from where did their stories originate? Were they collectors of old wives’ tales, innovative storytellers, cultural historians, promoters of German nationalism, or purveyors of a subversive counter-culture?
Part of a series of talks on the history and evolution of folklore and fairy tales, this talk aims to shine light on these enigmatic brothers who have had an unparalleled influence on the world of storytelling.
CCSW Presents in conjunction with Chris Brooks, a selection of Basile’s most audacious fairy tales contained within Basile’s own frame narrative.
This storytelling session will be done via zoom.
