This chapter studies the Grimms’ summaries (also defined as adaptations) of Basile’s fifty tales in The Tale of Tales. In particular, this chapter focuses on the Grimms’ transformations of Basile’s two versions of the Cupid and Psyche myth, the topic of the first chapter of this book. This chapter brings to the fore the subtle changes that the Grimms introduce in their adaptations in order to make the baroque Italian tales more moral and acceptable to a German sensibility.

Keywords:   Basile, Brothers Grimm, adaptations, Cupid and Psyche
