    Any children’s literature from that time would be considered dark by today’s standards. The brothers Grimm changed a lot in the fairy and folk tales they published, too. As a child, having read the original, I didn’t see it as dark, only a lovely interesting tale with a lesson about being a good person. It is also one of the great spiritual transformational tales: what it takes to become a real human being and how difficult it can be.

  2. Tasha, I agree with you. Today, we’re raising a soft bratty society!
