Widely known tales such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” and “Rumpelstiltskin” collected by the Grimm Brothers in the early 19th century, have become part of everyday culture and shapers of identities in many Western countries. A contemporary of the Brothers Grimm, Franz Xaver von Schönwerth tirelessly collected the folklore, legends, and fairytales of “ordinary folk” in the Upper Palatinate region of his native Bavaria and published them in the 1850s in a three-volume scholarly work. The dual language book Original Bavarian Folktales: A Schönwerth Selection by M. Charlotte Wolf is the first English-German edition of these tales. The stories are fascinating testimonies of the beliefs and lives of people in southeastern Germany in the 1800s and before. In this lecture, M. Charlotte Wolf will talk about Schönwerth and his work as a collector of stories as well as her personal connection to and work with these tales.
M. Charlotte Wolf, Ph.D., was born and raised in Germany, and has lived in the United States for almost twenty years. Her studies in these countries have resulted in a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies (Literature, Women’s Studies) and an M.A. in German. Highlights of her work as a translator include a collection of early to modern German crime stories, a collection of Bavarian folktales, a short story anthology, and a children’s book. She also holds a position as German teacher at a regional high school, where she is trying to instill a passion for German culture, language and literature in her students.
