Fairy Tales: The fairy tales by Jake and Willie Grimm really were exceedingly grim before they were Bowdlerized, Disneyized, and made excruciatingly politically correct. National Geographic has put on the Internet an assortment of the tales "as they was wrote" for our reading enjoyment at http://www.nationalgeographic.com/grimm/index2.html. There are more, in English and in slightly modernized German, at the Virginia Commonwealth University site at http://www.vcu.edu/hasweb/for/grimm/grimm_menu.html. An AltaVista search (+Grimm +tales) at http://www.altavista.com/ yielded more than 5,100 hits -- a fairly popular subject.
