EPISODE DESCRIPTION

In this lecture Dr. William Barker looked at animals in the traditional tales that the Brothers Grimm collected and a few other collections.

"Animals in these tales have specific functions that remain profoundly familiar to us in popular and high culture," he says. "Themes of cleverness, kindness, sympathy, generosity, greed, revenge, cruelty and death run through these tales, and the animals and humans are all participants in this complex moral universe."
