The linguist and philologist Jacob Grimm (1785 1863) is best remembered as co-editor, with his brother Wilhelm, of Grimms Fairy Tales, though their great Deutsches Worterbuch remains an influential etymological reference work.

Grimms exhaustiveMoreThe linguist and philologist Jacob Grimm (1785 1863) is best remembered as co-editor, with his brother Wilhelm, of Grimms Fairy Tales, though their great Deutsches Worterbuch remains an influential etymological reference work. Grimms exhaustive study in comparative mythology and religion, Deutsche Mythologie, was first published in German in 1835: this English translation, published between 1880 and 1888, is of the posthumous fourth German edition of 1875.

Drawing on his broad knowledge of language and world mythology, Grimm outlines a wide variety of themes in Germanic folklore (such as time, creation, destiny and the soul), comparing them to classical and oriental tales as well as charting the influence of Christianity on legends and on Pagan religion. The first three volumes contain Grimms account of the myths and legends, while the fourth contains supplementary material and three appendices.

This is an invaluable resource for scholars of mythology, religion and German cultural history.
