FYS Week 1

I chose this seminar because I love to read and have always loved these types of short stories. Even before I was accepted at McDaniel I had read many Brothers Grimm fairy tales. Learning these stories gives an insight into entire cultures and gives us more knowledge of how we communicated different events and morals. The first week of class was great. I learned things I did not expect to even touch when first entering the class. I not only learned about adaptations of these fairy tales, but also where they came from, why they were written, who the audience was, and what the overall purpose of them was. I look forward to the rest of this class and learning all about these fairy tales.
