Fairy Tale Origins: Hansel and Gretel

Hänsel and Gretel, in German folklore, began happily enough.  The little family of four – with a woodsman for a father – lived quietly on the edge of a forest that supplied their means of making a living.  The father chopped wood and sold it.  The mother, however, died, leaving the children motherless.  The father, like many peasants, took on a new wife as soon as possible – tending children and a household was beyond the ken of most men in those days.

The Tragic Life of Edgar Allan Poe

A common misconception of Poe's literary work is that it was just a bunch of creepy things written by a creepy guy. Poe is often described as a degenerate drunk and opium fiend, but readers would be shocked on how many great writers were either one or both of those things. Edgar Allan Poe was not so much a creepy guy as he was one that was plagued by misfortune at every turn of his life. However, it is through his torturous life and misfortune that we as readers owe a debt of gratitude for the pinnacle of gothic horror literature. Hemmingway once said that the key to good writing was to just sit down and bleed, and it can be said that Poe did that all through his life and writing.
