'what's heard' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'stern-faced story-teller' is the wordplay.

'faced story teller' becomes 'm' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'from' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for grimm that I've seen before include "The brothers remembered for their fairy stories" , "German folklorist" , "Old yarn collector" , "taletellers" , "Jacob and Wilhelm -, German folklorists" .)
