I’ve been reading Grimm’s fairy tales to my daughter.
Hans the Hedgehog is a 19th century, Germanic mind !#@$ — for children.
“…he made the cock fly on to a high tree with him, and there he sat for many a long year, and watched his asses and swine until the herd was quite large, and his father knew nothing about him.”
“While he was sitting in the tree, however, he played his bagpipes, and made music which was very beautiful.”
Gorgeous, grotesque and entirely insensitive to gender and race; daughters sacrificed and an enchanted youth whitened by ‘precious salves’.
