Il Pentamerone, ossia, La fiaba delle Fiabe Free read ☆ 107 Ó Giambattista Basile was a seventeenth century Italian poet whom the Grimms credit with recording the first national collection of fairy tales The Tale of Tales opens with Princess Zoza unable to laugh no matter how funny the joke Her father the king attempts Her smile; instead he leaves her cursed whereupon the prince she is destined to marry is snatched up by another woman To expose this impostor and win back her rightful husband Zosa contrives a storytelling extravaganza fifty fairy tales to be told by ten sharp tongue. This is a brilliant and fantastical collection of early fairy tales The framing story is really interesting and gives us almost an Arabian Nights set up to work within Each story is a complete entity and every one is worth reading The style is light informal and engaging I am sure that this is thanks in part to the excellent translation having read the notes at the start this has stuck as closely to the original as possible A few of the attitudes expressed clash with modern sensibilities the stories were written in the 1600s after all however far less so than in nineteenth century written fairy tales such as Andersen or Grimm and actually there were fewer instances than I have found in a lot of mid twentieth century literature as well If you are unable to read past the couple of dodgy moments then I don't know how you would cope with reading any of the historic classics as every one of them represents the time in which they were written Having said this the collection is certainly not suitable for young readers there is sex violence and a fair bit of gore certainly fairy tales for grown ups only

Il Pentamerone ossia La fiaba delle FiabeGiambattista Basile was a seventeenth century Italian poet whom the Grimms credit with recording the first national collection of fairy tales The Tale of Tales opens with Princess Zoza unable to laugh no matter how funny the joke Her father the king attempts to make. Perhaps the weirdest collection of fairy tales I've come across in my study of fairy tales These were written in the seventeenth century before bigger names like Grimm and Perrault You can tell at times because most of these stories are early versions of best loved tales like Cinderella Rapunzel Puss in Boots and Sleeping Beauty Unlike Grimm and Perrault this isn't an anthology of fairy tales This is a novel set up similar to Arabian Nights and Canterbury Tales It's a story about telling fifty talesThis book is not for children Despite the fact it's fairy tales this is for adults Words like bitch and shit get tossed around than once I kind of find that interesting because this book is older than most collections but than again seeing this was written in the early seventeenth century I'm not surprised either As I said before these are like Canterbury Tales but easier to read well maybe that's the translator's doingThere's a movie version I recommend watching before this book Most times I'd say to read the book first but the movie help me figure out what some of the tales were like beforehand The movie isn't a frame story like the book but it has some of the weirder tales It's a good introduction what you'll except The movie is R too which I thought was a little off but than I actually read the bookI kind of wish this collection wasn't so underrated on Goodreads though So many people like fairy tales but so many people I see ignore or don't know this book exists Even though I'm giving this a high ratting this isn't the best book in the word it's not even that well written but it's great for people actually interested in studying fairy tales Penguin's edition has a ton of notes and tales you which fairy tales are similar with each tale This book would make a great book to study in college or a class about fairy tales too I think
