GRIMM, JACOB AND WILLIAM JACOB (RIGHT) AND WILLIAM GRIMM. Portrait by Elisabeth Erihau-Bauman (Grimm, Jakob, 1785-1863; Grimm, Wilhelm, 1786-1859) German philologists. Born in Hanau, near Frankfurt am Main: Jacob – January 4, 1785, Wilhelm – February 24, 1786. After graduating from high school in Kassel, they entered the University of Marburg, the Faculty of Law. In Marburg, Fr. C. von Savigny (1779-1861) aroused their interest in history and philology, and in 1804 Jacob went with him to Paris to help in the search for ancient manuscripts. Through Savigny, the brothers met C. Brentano, who at that time, together with L. von Arnim, collected folk songs, legends and fairy tales. In 1808, Jacob became the personal librarian of Jerome Bonaparte, then King of Westphalia, and eight years later was appointed second librarian in Kassel, in the same library where his brother served as secretary. Here they worked until 1829, devoting their free time to philology and collecting fairy tales and legends. In 1830, the brothers began teaching at the University of Göttingen, but in 1837 they were dismissed, having signed a protest by the university professors against the infringement of the constitution by the Elector of Hanover. In 1840 the new Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV appointed the brothers as members of the Berlin Academy of Sciences. The last years of their lives they devoted mainly to lecturing and scientific research, undertaking a titanic work in 1852 to compile a dictionary of the German language. After the death of Wilhelm in Kassel on December 16, 1859 and the death of Jacob in Berlin on September 20, 1863, this work was continued by various groups of scientists (completed in 1961). In 1812 the brothers Grimm published the first volume of Children`s and Family Tales (Kinder- und Hausmärchen), where they managed not only to successfully reproduce fairy tales in their pristine simplicity, but also to express the very soul of the German people. In 1815 the second volume was published, in 1822 – the third. In 1816-1818 they published German traditions (Deutsche Sagen). Jacob`s publications include German Grammar (Deutsche Grammatik, 1819–1837), which attempts to create a strictly scientific grammar for all Germanic languages. This work, in which language is seen as something constantly evolving and inextricably linked with the life and fate of people, revolutionized philology. In the revised edition of the first volume (1822), Jacob for the first time clearly formulated the law of movement of consonants in Germanic and other Indo-European languages ​​(“Grimm`s law”). Wilhelm`s work is primarily concerned with the meticulous collection, translation and publication of numerous old texts. Taken from the site http://www.krugosvet.ru
