No one had ever recorded the folk telling fairy tales before the nineteenth century, but the imputed and assumed orality of the storytelling process made documentation an irrelevance. What was obviously and documentably true for folk tales was assumed to be true for fairy tales as well. As a consequence, literary fairy tales came to be seen as contaminations of what was considered to have been a pure oral tradition. ”41 THE GRIMMS AND THEIR WORLD A dispassionate look at the lives of the two Grimm brothers and a close consideration of the world within which they collected TWO ACCOUNTS OF THE G R I M M S ’ TA L E S 43 tales puts their literary work into a meaningful historical context.
46 Jacob hotly denied von Arnim’s assertions that “Mrs. Fox’s Wedding” was a dirty story, because he’d heard it as something innocently funny when he was little and had never understood it in any other way. The innocence with which the Grimms—and Jacob in particular—credited the folk was in fact their own. Eventually, when Wilhelm turned to early German published sources to augment his collection, he faced head-on a German print tradition of brutal violence, repellent scatology, and raw sex that must have modified his view of folk purity, though—in fact—he never changed the wording of his prefaces to reflect any change in his expressed views of folk innocence and purity.
Later, when they did learn something of that sort, they had already formed their views. To the present day a tradition-based history of fairy tales has maintained Wilhelm’s views and has assumed that the kinds of tales that appear in the Grimm collection had always existed and that they had survived, because they had constantly and continuously regenerated themselves, mysteriously and unaccountably remaining unchanged and elemental, because of their ability to recreate themselves in their own image.
