In this episode I read to you Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel, both as written by the Grimm brothers. We'll say farewell to the brothers for now (perhaps to return at another time), but I wanted to do so with a bang!
How do Cinderella and Hansel and Gretel compare to the stories we know today? Traumatically, probably! Let's find out together.
Here's where to find the texts I read:
- Cinderella: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/11027/11027-h/11027-h.htm#cinderella
- Hansel and Gretel: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2591/2591-h/2591-h.htm#link2H_4_0020

The biggest twist of this book is that it ENDS THIS WEEK. In my quest to be totally ignorant of literature, I retained my integrity in the glory of realizing this dang thing is at an end!
Robert Louis Stevenson saved his finest and most reflective prose for this final, action-free chapter. A bold choice.
Something actually happens in Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde this week! And we finally meet some colorful characters.
It'd be MURDER if you missed this episode. (That's a hint; someone gets murdered in the story this week.)
