  2. The quotation from Andersen sent me scurrying to find its source, which turns out to be a little tale called “The Butterfly.” The story ends up quite differently from what the quotation in isolation might make you think:

    European fairy tales are often a lot less sentimental than the versions that Americans seem to favor; the originals may have sad or even brutal endings.
