The Tales of the Grimm Brothers in Colombia: Introduction, dissemination, and reception
by Michaelis-Vultorius, Alexandra, Ph.D., Wayne State University, 2011, 382; 3487376
Abstract (Summary)

The Grimms' Kinder- und Hausmärchen or Children's and Household Tales are probably the best-known written collection of folk tales worldwide. The reception of the stories, however, varies greatly both at an individual and at a collective level. Several studies have examined the reception of the tales in Europe, Asia, and North America, but so far no broad-based study exists for Latin America. This dissertation fills this gap by examining the introduction, propagation, translations, and reception of the Grimm tales in Colombia.
