Author Info
A. S. Byatt
Antonia Susan Byatt was born in Sheffield, a Yorkshire steel town, where she led what she describes as an isolated childhood and adolescence despite the presence of three siblings. Her mother was educated at Cambridge but gave up teaching to raise her family--a choice she was bitter about. Her attitude strongly affected Antonia, who also went to Cambridge. She also married young and had four children; she has been married twice, and her only son was killed by a drunk driver in 1970. She maintains residences in London and in the south of France. Her present husband, Peter Duffy, is an investment analyst. Her sister is the novelist Margaret Drabble; a natural rivalry between the two of them passed with the years. Known as a "Victorian postmodernist," Byatt writes meaty, erudite, old-fashioned novels; ANGELS AND INSECTS was made into a film in 1995.
Jacob Grimm is famous for the fairy tales he wrote with his brother Wilhelm. Both brothers attended the University of Marburg to study law, but their love of folklore and desire to keep ancient stories alive led them to produce collections of stories. Their first collection of tales was produced in 1812, but was not written for children. A children's edition of folk and fairy tales was published in 1814 and included such stories as "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstilskin", and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses". The brothers lived together throughout their lives. In 1825, Wilhelm married Dorothea Wild--the couple had five children and Jacob was like a second father to them. There is a memorial to the two brothers in Hanau, Germany.
