Hansel & Gretel

hansel and gretel

Hansel and Gretel is an interesting, certainly one of the darkest, children’s story by the Brothers Grimm. Giving into my ongoing allure to mysterious, enchanted forests, this tale embodies the horror of a clandestine and cannibalistic witch and the desperation of parents abandoning their children. In a dark time of famine in old Germany, her gingerbread house sets the trap for anyone looking to survive on sweets.
