But as industrialization took root, local traditions changed and scholars, like Jacob and Wilhelm, began a quest to save the stories from extinction.
They interviewed relatives and friends, collecting whatever tales they could, sometimes embellishing them although they insisted they did not.
The stories routinely included sex, violence, incest and copious footnotes. Initially aimed at adults, the early editions of Nursery and Household Tales contained remarkably dark elements.
In its original version, for example, Rapunzel gets pregnant by the prince after a casual fling. In Cinderella, the stepsisters cut off their toes and heels to try to fit into the slipper.
These sorts of scenes and many others were eventually revised once the stories became popular among children.
In , King Ernest Augustus demanded oaths of allegiance from all professors in Gottingen, a university city where Jacob and Wilhelm taught Germanic studies.
Jobless and branded as political dissidents, the brothers were forced to borrow money from friends as they worked on their story collection.
By that point, the collection had grown to stories and included intricate illustrations. According to biographers, Jacob was deeply distraught after the death of his brother, with whom he had held a close bond throughout his life.
They were very hard-working pupils throughout their education. However, in , their father died at the age of 44 from pneumonia.
This was a tragic time for the Grimms because the family lost all financial support and relied on their aunt, Henriette Zimmer, and grandfather, Johanne Hermann Zimmer.
At the age of 11, Jacob was compelled to be head of the household and provide for his family. After down-sizing their home because of financial reasons, Henriette sent Jacob and Wilhelm to study at the prestigious high school, Lyzeum, in Kassel.
In school, their grandfather wrote to them saying that because of their current situation, they needed to apply themselves industriously to secure their future welfare.
Shortly after attending Lyzeum, their grandfather died and they were again left to themselves to support their family in the future.
The two became intent on becoming the best students at Lyzeum, since they wanted to live up to their deceased father. They studied more than twelve hours a day and established similar work habits.
They also shared the same bed and room at school. After four years of rigorous schooling, Jacob graduated head of his class in Wilhelm contracted asthma and scarlet fever, which delayed his graduation by one year although he was also head of his class.
Both were given special dispensations for studying law at the University of Marburg. They particularly needed this dispensation because their social standing at the time was not high enough to have normal admittance.
University of Marburg was a small, person university where most students were more interested in activities other than schooling.
Most of the students received stipends even though they were the richest in the state. The Grimms did not receive any stipends because of their social standing; however, they were not upset by it since it kept the distractions away.
Jacob attended the university first and showed proof of his hard work ethic and quick intelligence.
Wilhelm joined Jacob at the university, and Jacob drew the attention of Professor Friedrich Carl von Savigny , founder of its historical school of law.
He became a huge personal and professional influence on the brothers. Throughout their time at university, the brothers became quite close with Savigny and were able to use his personal library as they became very interested in German law, history, and folklore.
Savigny asked Jacob to join him in Paris as an assistant, and Jacob went with him for a year. While he was gone, Wilhelm became very interested in German literature and started collecting books.
Once Jacob returned to Kassel in , he adopted his brother's passion and changed his focus from law to German literature. While Jacob studied literature and took care of their siblings, Wilhelm continued on to receive his degree in law at Marburg.
In , their mother died, and it was hard on Jacob because he took the position in the family as a father figure, while also trying to be a brother.
From to , the Grimm family had barely enough money to properly feed and clothe themselves. During this time, Jacob and Wilhelm were concerned about the stability of the family.
Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano were good friends of the brothers and wanted to publish folk tales, so they asked the brothers to collect oral tales for publication.
The Grimms collected many old books and asked friends and acquaintances in Kassel to tell tales and to gather stories from others.
Jacob and Wilhelm sought to collect these stories in order to write a history of old German Poesie and to preserve history.
The first volume of the first edition was published in , containing 86 stories; the second volume of 70 stories followed in For the second edition, two volumes containing the KHM texts were issued in and the Appendix was removed and published separately in the third volume in , totaling tales.
The third edition appeared in ; fourth edition, ; fifth edition, ; sixth edition, ; seventh edition, Stories were added, and also subtracted, from one edition to the next, until the seventh held tales.
Some later editions were extensively illustrated, first by Philipp Grot Johann and, after his death in , by German illustrator Robert Leinweber.
September 20, , Berlin and Wilhelm Carl Grimm b. February 24, , Hanau, Hesse-Kassel [Germany]—d. They were among the most important German scholars of their time.
Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were the oldest in a family of five brothers and one sister. Their father, Philipp Wilhelm, a lawyer, was town clerk in Hanau and later justiciary in Steinau, another small Hessian town, where his father and grandfather had been ministers of the Calvinistic Reformed Church.
Jacob, a scholarly type, was small and slender with sharply cut features, while Wilhelm was taller, had a softer face, and was sociable and fond of all the arts.
At Marburg they came under the influence of Clemens Brentano , who awakened in both a love of folk poetry, and Friedrich Karl von Savigny , cofounder of the historical school of jurisprudence, who taught them a method of antiquarian investigation that formed the real basis of all their later work.
Others, too, strongly influenced the Grimms, particularly the philosopher Johann Gottfried von Herder , with his ideas on folk poetry. Essentially, they remained individuals, creating their work according to their own principles.
In Jacob accompanied Savigny to Paris to do research on legal manuscripts of the Middle Ages; the following year he became secretary to the war office in Kassel.
Because of his health, Wilhelm remained without regular employment until As secretary to the legation, he went twice to Paris —15 , to recover precious books and paintings taken by the French from Hesse and Prussia.
He also took part in the Congress of Vienna September —June By that time the brothers had definitely given up thoughts of a legal career in favour of purely literary research.
In the years to follow they lived frugally and worked steadily, laying the foundations for their lifelong interests.
