Between 1812 and 1857, seven editions of their often dark-hued folk tales--200 stories and 11 legends--found their way into the Western consciousness. This presentation first defines what a folk tale is and then explores the meticulous research that Jacob and Wilhelm undertook to accomplish their goal of collecting significant stories from around Europe; their accomplishments have created the great archetypes for much modern literature, sociology, and psychology.

Dr. Bill Thierfelder holds a Ph.D. in English with minors in theater, art history, and music history. After teaching second grade classes for four years, and high school seniors for six months as a replacement substitute, Dr. Thiefelder spent the next 32 years teaching a variety of Arts and Humanities courses at several New York and Long Island universities and colleges, including St. John's University and Dowling College.
