THE BROTHERS GRIMM
All of us at some stage in our lives have probably read something from these two guys.
During 19th century two German brothers made a name for themselves for writing folklores. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm became famous as Brothers Grimm for their contribution to traditional folk tales. They had diversified interest in the world of academia as they worked as cultural researchers, linguists, lexicographers, folklore collectors and writers.
Clancy's comment: Mm ... Amazing collection. I wonder how many of our stories will still be read in a hundred year's time.
