    Abstract:
    The Grimms' tale of "Brier Rose" (KHM 50) has self-reflexive characteristics of the Romantic literary fairy tale. In thematizing memory and alluding to the imagery used in the preface to the Grimm brothers' collection of fairy tales, Wilhelm Grimm's version of the story self-consciously reflects on its own origins and exhibits a self-awareness more common to Romantic literature than to the natural and idealized folk tradition the collection purported to preserve.
    Notes:
