The Grimm Reader: The Classic Tales of the Brothers Grimm Day 9

November 6, 2020 | Fircher’s Bird. The Juniper Tree. The six Swans.

"My mother, she slew me,
My father, he ate me,
My sister, Marlene,
Gathered my bones,
Tied them in silk, for the juniper tree.
Tweet, tweet, what a fine bird am I."
The Juniper Tree
Is there a more literal and literary tweeter than this boy?



"She set to work gathering all the body parts and put them back where they belonged: heads, torsos, arms, and legs." Fitcher's Bird.
Fairytale at its most hopeful: life and death are only the two sides of a reversible jacket.
