グリム兄弟の伝記。
ドイツの歴史も学べます。

This story shows that taking your time is better than doing something quickly. The phrase "slow and steady wins the race" comes from this fable.

p24
Aesop’s fables の”The tortoise and the hare”から

Napoleon's brother who now ruled Kassel, hired Jacob to run the palace library.

p40

The Grimms, however, believed that fairy tales were hidden treasures of German culture and values.

p44

Fairy tales were about facing challenges and overcoming them.

p47

In each country, the story had a different title and the characters had different names. It was Perrault who added the pumpkin carriage, the fairy god mother, and Cinderella's glass slipper to the story. In the German version that the Grimms found, Cinderella does not have a fairy godmother but receives help from a wishing tree that grows on her mother's grave.

p48

Perrault was also an adviser to the king of France. He encouraged Louis XIV to create Aesop's fountain at Versailles, which included thirty-nine statues, each representing one of Aesop's fables.

p53
ベルサイユに今もあるのかな?

One mother told Wilhelm she refused to let her children read the book because of one story. In it, children are tricked into killing their friends. Wilhelm adamantly defended the story: His own mother had told it to him as a child, and, as a result, he played with his friends more carefully.

p56
adamantly 断固として、頑固に

Her death had an enormous impact on the brothers. As soon as he could, Jacob returned home to Kassel. The brothers decided never to live apart again.

p64

German Grammar became a national best seller. In fact, it sold better than the fairy tales!

p69
学者として有名だったんですね。

Many people knew the myths from ancient Greece and Rome. But very few knew any German myths. Instead, they thought ancient Germans were barbaric. Now, because of Jacob, people could read these ancient stories and see that ancient Germans were actually civilized people with a system of law and faith in the divine. People who study German mythology today refer to the time before 1835 as "before Grimm" and the years after 1835 as "after Grimm."

p79

They did not think a ruler should have the power to take away the people's rights. These seven professors became known as the Gottingen Seven.

p80

Crowds would gather outside their home and sing songs until Jacob and Wilhelm stepped out onto the balcony. The Grimms were greeted with cheers, speeches, and even gifts.

p90

It is not easy to write an original fairy tale. Hans Christian Andersen, however, created many new fairy tales that became just as famous as the ones that had existed for hundreds of years.

p92

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm began the first major German dictionary. Their goal was to give the history and meaning of every word used in German literature from 1500 to 1832.
(中略)
After the brothers died, other German scholars worked to finish it. It wasn't until 1960 --- over one hundred years after the Grimms had started --- that the dictionary was completed. Their dictionary inspired England, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland to create dictionaries of their own.

p95
100年後に完成!

Next to the Bible, Children's and Household Tales is still the most widely read book in Germany.

p100
