The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors who together collected folklore. They are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as Cinderella, The Frog Prince, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Snow White. Lori Campbell is a lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, where she teaches courses in 19th- and 20th-century literature and cultural studies. She is the author of Portals of Power: Magical Agency and Transformation in Literary Fantasy.
