Asbjørnsen and Moe tale

Norway Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe are two Norwegian writers from the XIXth century. At their time, the Norwegian literary style was too influenced by Danish norms to be suitable for national folklore, while the various dialects used by Norway’s oral storytellers were too local. Asbjørnsen and Moe solved the problem of style by adopting the Brothers Grimm's principle of using simple language in place of the various dialects, yet maintaining the national uniqueness of the folktales.
