a up to date upsurge in curiosity in Der Struwwelpeter, written through Heinrich Hoffman has initiated a brand new wave of spin-offs, parodies, and retellings of those immensely renowned tales. Hoffman's kind, that's instructive and moralistic, coupled with the sadistic content material of his works lend a different caliber to the tales that we do not see in modern kid's literature. Struwwelpeter: Humor or Horror? is a severe research of the now notorious Struwwelpeter tales. whereas Hoffman meant his depictions of amputated limbs and burning little ones to be funny and to warn young ones opposed to misbehavior, a few locate the punishments might be excessively vicious. having a look past the background of kid rearing practices and kid's literature, Barbara Smith Chalou considers the socio-historic context within which the booklet used to be written and makes comparisons to modern kid's fare that's equally violent, yet meant to be humorous.
