Devil in Disguise
Devil in Disguise, originally titled “Frau Trude,” is a cautionary story from a collection of Grimm’s fairy tales published in 1812. Although this tale is short and concise, it has profound meaning and deeply reflects on social roles for females during the time it was conceived. This tale, and many other cautionary tales like it, tell the story of the curious and willful maiden that is punished for her obstinate ways. In Frau Trude, the protagonist desires to meet a mysterious and interesting witch. She goes directly against her parents’ wishes and ventures out to meet the witch.
