Oh, since I've been asked, the "Description" under the main banner -- Where words fail, music speaks -- is a quote by Hans Christian Andersson, which is fairly appropriate, and especially pertinent to anyone wondering where the childhood trauma stuff comes in.

Believe me, it does come in. Although, all in good time.

But back to Anderson. For this:

When fairy tales at his time were didactic, he brought into them ambiguity.

he should be commended. And for this:

His identification with the unfortunate and outcast made his tales very compelling.

he should be celebrated.
