He made the tales stylistically similar, added dialogue, removed pieces "that might detract from a rustic tone", improved the plots, and incorporated psychological motifs. He believes that Wilhelm "gleaned" bits from old Germanic faiths , Norse mythology, Roman and Greek mythology , and biblical stories that he reshaped. Over the years, Wilhelm worked extensively on the prose, expanded and added detail to the stories to the point that many grew to be twice the length of those in the earliest published editions.
After , he began writing for children children were not initially considered the primary audience , adding entirely new tales or adding new elements to existing tales, elements that were often strongly didactic. Some changes were made in light of unfavorable reviews, particularly from those who objected that not all the tales were suitable for children because of scenes of violence and sexuality.
The Grimms' legacy contains legends, novellas , and folk stories, the vast majority of which were not intended as children's tales. Von Armin was deeply concerned about the content of some of the tales, such as those which showed children being eaten, and suggested that they be removed. Instead, the brothers added an introduction with cautionary advice that parents steer children toward age-appropriate stories. Despite von Armin's unease, none of the tales were eliminated from the collection, in the brothers' belief that all the tales were of value and reflected inherent cultural qualities.
For example, in the Grimms' original version of " Snow White ", the Queen is Little Snow White's mother, not her stepmother, yet even so she orders her Huntsman to kill Snow White her biological daughter and bring home the child's lungs and liver so that she can eat them. The story ends with the Queen mother dancing at Snow White's wedding wearing a pair of red-hot iron shoes that kill her. To some extent, the cruelty and violence may have been a reflection of medieval culture from which the tales originated, such as scenes of witches burning, as described in " The Six Swans ".
Tales with a spinning motif are broadly represented in the collection. In her essay "Tale Spinners: Submerged Voices in Grimms' Fairy Tales", children's literature scholar Bottigheimer explains that these stories reflect the degree to which spinning was crucial in the life of women in the 19th century and earlier.
Spinning, and particularly the spinning of flax , was commonly performed in the home by women. Many stories begin by describing the occupation of a main character, as in "There once was a miller", yet spinning is never mentioned as an occupation, probably because the brothers did not consider it an occupation. Instead, spinning was a communal activity, frequently performed in a Spinnstube spinning room , a place where women most likely kept the oral traditions alive by telling stories while engaged in tedious work.
The tales were also criticized for being insufficiently German, which influenced the tales that the brothers included as well as their use of language. Some critics such as Alistair Hauke use Jungian analysis to say that the deaths of the brothers' father and grandfather are the reason for the Grimms' tendency to idealize and excuse fathers, as well as the predominance of female villains in the tales, such as the wicked stepmother and stepsisters in "Cinderella", but this disregards the fact that they were collectors, not authors of the tales.
The collection includes 41 tales about siblings, which Zipes says are representative of Jacob and Wilhelm. Many of the sibling stories follow a simple plot where the characters lose a home, work industriously at a specific task and, in the end, find a new home.
The Large editions contained all the tales collected to date, extensive annotations, and scholarly notes written by the brothers; the Small editions had only 50 tales and were intended for children. Jacob and Wilhelm's younger brother Emil Grimm illustrated the Small editions, adding Christian symbolism to the drawings, such as depicting Cinderella's mother as an angel, and adding a Bible to the bedside table of Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother.
The first volume was published in with 86 folk tales,  and a second volume with 70 additional tales was published late in dated on the title page ; together, the two volumes and their tales are considered the first of the Large annotated editions. The seventh and final edition of contained tales— numbered folk tales and eleven legends.
The stories were often added to collections by other authors without respect to copyright as the tales became a focus of interest for children's book illustrators,  with well-known artists such as Arthur Rackham , Walter Crane , and Edmund Dulac illustrating the tales. A popular edition that sold well was released in the midth century and included elaborate etchings by George Cruikshank. Jacob and Wilhelm's collection of stories has been translated to more than languages with different editions of the text available for sale in the US alone.
While at the University of Marburg , the brothers came to see culture as tied to language and regarded the purest cultural expression in the grammar of a language. They moved away from Brentano's practice—and that of the other romanticists—who frequently changed original oral styles of folk tale to a more literary style, which the brothers considered artificial. They thought that the style of the people the volk reflected a natural and divinely inspired poetry naturpoesie as opposed to the kunstpoesie art poetry , which they saw as artificially constructed.
The brothers strongly believed that the dream of national unity and independence relied on a full knowledge of the cultural past that was reflected in folklore. The Grimms considered the tales to have origins in traditional Germanic folklore, which they thought had been "contaminated" by later literary tradition. The Song of Hildebrand and Hadubrand is a 9th-century German heroic song, while the Wessobrunn Prayer is the earliest known German heroic song.
Between and , the brothers published a two-volume work titled Deutsche Sagen German Legends consisting of German legends. Unlike the collection of folk tales, Deutsche Sagen sold poorly,  but Zipes says that the collection is a "vital source for folklorists and critics alike". Not until did they begin publishing the dictionary in installments. The brothers responded with modifications and rewrites in order to increase the book's market appeal to that demographic.

In the 20th century, the work has maintained status as second only to the Bible as the most popular book in Germany. Its sales generated a mini-industry of criticism which analyzed the tales' folkloric content in the context of literary history, socialism, and psychological elements often along Freudian and Jungian lines. In their research, the brothers made a science of the study of folklore see folkloristics , generating a model of research that "launched general fieldwork in most European countries",  and setting standards for research and analysis of stories and legends that made them pioneers in the field of folklore in the 19th century.
Twentieth-century educators debated the value and influence of teaching stories that include brutality and violence, causing some of the more gruesome details to be sanitized. On the other hand, some educators and psychologists believe that children easily discern the difference between what is a story and what is not and that the tales continue to have value for children.
Other stories, however, have been considered too gruesome and have not made a popular transition. Regardless of the debate, the Grimms' stories have continued to be resilient and popular around the world,  although a recent study in England appears to suggest that parents consider the stories to be overly violent and inappropriate for young children, writes Libby Copeland for Slate.
Nevertheless, children remain enamored with the Grim fairy tales with the brothers themselves embraced as the creators of the stories and even as part of the stories themselves. The film Brothers Grimm imagines them as con-artists exploiting superstitious German peasants until they are asked to confront a genuine fairy tale curse that calls them to finally be heroes.
The movie Ever After shows the Grimm Brothers in their role as collectors of fairy tales though they learn to their surprise that at least one of their stories Cinderella is actually true. Grimm follows a detective who discovers he is a Grimm, the latest in a line of guardians who are sworn to keep the balance between humanity and mythological creatures.
Ever After High imagines Grimm Brothers here descendants called Milton and Giles as headmasters of Ever After High boarding school where they train the children of the previous generation of fairy tales to follow in their parents' footsteps. The 10th Kingdom mini series states that the brothers were trapped in the fairy tale world for years where they witnessed the events of their stories before finally making it back to the real world. The Sisters Grimm book series follows their descendants, Sabrina and Daphne, as they adapt to life in Ferryport Landing, a town in upstate New York populated by fairy tale people.
Separate from the previous series are The Land of Stories and its Sisters Grimm, a self described coven determined to track down and document creatures from the fairy tale world that cross over into the real world. Their ancestors were in fact chosen by Mother Goose and others to tell fairy tales so that they might give hope to the human race. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
