Background[ edit ] The rise of romanticismRomantic nationalismand trends in valuing popular culture in the early 19th century revived interest in fairy tales, which had declined since their lateth-century peak. They collected and published tales as a reflection of German cultural identity.

Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child.
The grandmother lived out in the wood, half a league from the village, and just as Little Red-Cap entered the wood, a wolf met her. Red-Cap did not know what a wicked creature he was, and was not at all afraid of him.
The wolf thought to himself: I must act craftily, so as to catch both. I believe, too, that you do not hear how sweetly the little birds are singing; you walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry.
And whenever she had picked one, she fancied that she saw a still prettier one farther on, and ran after it, and so got deeper and deeper into the wood. Then he put on her clothes, dressed himself in her cap laid himself in bed and drew the curtains.
Little Red-Cap, however, had been running about picking flowers, and when she had gathered so many that she could carry no more, she remembered her grandmother, and set out on the way to her.
She was surprised to find the cottage-door standing open, and when she went into the room, she had such a strange feeling that she said to herself: There lay her grandmother with her cap pulled far over her face, and looking very strange. When the wolf had appeased his appetite, he lay down again in the bed, fell asleep and began to snore very loud.
The huntsman was just passing the house, and thought to himself: I must just see if she wants anything. When he had made two snips, he saw the little Red-Cap shining, and then he made two snips more, and the little girl sprang out, crying: Then all three were delighted.
But the grandmother saw what was in his thoughts. In front of the house was a great stone trough, so she said to the child: Then the smell of the sausages reached the wolf, and he sniffed and peeped down, and at last stretched out his neck so far that he could no longer keep his footing and began to slip, and slipped down from the roof straight into the great trough, and was drowned.
But Red-Cap went joyously home, and no one ever did anything to harm her again.Note that most speakers of English know this story with the Grimms' contents, but with Charles Perrault's title, Little Red Riding Hood.
