The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault review ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub summary Ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Charles Perrault Charles Perrault ↠ 9 review TĂ© Puss in Boots La Belle au bois Dormant The Sleeping Beauty and Barbe Bleue Bluebeard Some of Perrault's versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm than 100 years later The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera ballet such as Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Bea. Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper My first Disney surprise of the volume I had always been under the assumption that Disney s early fairy tale movies were glossy post WWII bastardizations of the earlier versions of the tales So I was surprised to discover that Charles Perrault s 17th Century version of Cinderella was with the exception of an extra ball and a lack of talking mice the clear source for Walt s masterpiece I ve always been partial to Cinderella the best princess movie from the pre Eisener post Walt era before the Mouse House turned princess into a dirty word The animation is gorgeous and so wonderfully blue the music is properly serious and its storytelling is tightly woven Silly as it may be knowing that it is almost completely based on Perrault s story makes me feel a smidge less guilty about my appreciationThe Sleeping Beauty in the Woods And here s my second Disney surprise Walt and his cronies did away with the nasty Ogre ueen Mother who tries to eat the Sleeping Beauty s children after she wakes up but the first half of Perrault s tale is intact so Disney once again stuck closely to his source material with excellent results I have to say though that I would love to have seen the Ogre ueen Mother munching on the well dressed animals the cook prepared to trick her into thinking they were her grandkidsLittle Thumb The anti Ogre sentiment gets a bit much in Little Thumb Tom He and his brothers after their poor parents try to lose them in the wild to relieve their responsibilities and survive themselves stumble into an Ogre s home and the big mean evil Ogre man whose natural prey seems to be humans tells his wife that he wants to have all these yummy little boys cooked for the next days dinner partyTo save his and his brothers skins Little Thumb tricks the Ogre into cutting the throats of his seven daughters rather than the throats of Tom and his six brothers Then Tom steals seven golden crowns and the Ogre s magic boots and he becomes an important and rich messenger Probably my least favourite story Little Thumb s Ogre other is just the sort of insidious racism that makes my skin crawl If the Shrek movies weren t so crappy in so many ways I could almost appreciate their attempt to turn Ogres into protagonists AlmostThe Master Cat or Puss in Boots I knew nothing about this story until I read this take The Master Cat is a jerk He victimizes an Ogre King a king who seems to be a pretty decent ruler His people whom we meet throughout the tale are kind healthy prosperous and Puss just walks in and kills the Ogre King and hands the King s lands over to his own nobody master Puss s master gets the castle gets the girl and wins big Just under a hundred years later it would have been Puss in GuillotineRiuet with the Tuft My favourite of them all What a shame this has never been adapted to the screen The ugliest guy in the land is blessed with the greatest wisdom and intelligence The most beautiful girl in the land is cursed with the greatest stupidity So the ugliest guy gives her the gift of an intelligence to match his own but she must marry him in return What happens next is fascinating and one of the finest lessons I ve read in a fairy tale I think Paul Giamatti and Charlize Theron remember her character in Arrested Development should make this on the stage somewhereBlue Beard DON T LOOK IN THE CLOSET Just once I would love for someone in one of these stories to do what they are asked I suppose we wouldn t have a story then The Fairy This is a weird one A fairy rewards a girl who was nice to her with a mouth that spews gems whenever she speaks and curses her mean sister with a mouth that spews lizards whenever she speaks A Prince falls in love with the gems and marries the nice girl making her happy forever while she makes him rich Ummm okay Come to think of it though I bet gems from the mouth would have benefited Carrie in Sex and the City Little Red Riding Hood I have to spoil this one Sorry folks The Wolf he eats Little Red Riding Hood His trick succeeds His teeth are there to better eat her And that s it Story over Eat your heart out Wile E Coyote

The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault review ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub summary Ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Charles Perrault Charles Perrault ↠ 9 review CHARLES PERRAULT 12 January 1628 16 May 1703 was a French author and member of the AcadĂ©mie Française He laid the foundations for a new literary genre the fairy tale with his works derived from pre existing folk tales The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge Little Red Riding Hood Cendrillon Cinderella Le Chat Bot. Charles Perrault 1628 1703 was a controversial figure who argued before the Acad mie fran aise at his initiation ceremony that modern French literature was superior to that of the Greco Romans That enlivened the proceedings Later he elaborated his reasons and included the less than convincing argument that because the reign of Louis XIV was so enlightened his age was superior in all respects to that of the ancients Apparently he spent part of his life writing epic poems with Christian themesBut after he went off on these tangents he composed fairy tales in verse and prose which have entered into the popular culture and thought of all the peoples of Western Europe and their colonial offspring including the Land of Unlimited Opportunity Cinderella Little Red Riding Hood Sleeping Beauty Puss In Boots and others The Brothers Grimm reworked many of these stories and added their own macabre touch but already Perrault s stories were not the prettified and watered down versions I grew up with Not at all I don t recall being told in Sleeping Beauty about fairies being transported in fiery chariots drawn by dragons nor that the Prince s mother was of the race of ogres so he kept his relationship with Sleeping Beauty secret in order that she not be tempted to devour her grandchildren When the King died the Prince and new King made the relationship public and shortly after he went off to war the ueen Mother ordered her four year old granddaughter to be served la sauce Robert If you want to know if she succeeded in her desire with a little Chianti you ll have to read Perrault s version of the tale She did like the sauce though she ordered her grandson and then the young ueen to be served in the same mannerI was amused how Perrault hastened to assure the reader that when the prince came by the ch teau ensorcel he was of a different royal family I know how worried I was about the horrid possibilities of incest But I don t think Walt Disney would have been pleased to read that Sleeping Beauty was not uite 16 years old when she awoke and the Prince made her acuaintance since over the next two years they had two children which were probably not brought by storks Or maybe she was not uite 116 years old then it is OK yes But the children were born out of wedlock Hmmm not even fairy tales written by authors of epic poems about obscure bishops are reliableIf like me you only know the strictly abridged versions of these tales do look at Perrault s originals You might even want to tell them to your children because children like the macabre also At least I was told that the wolf ate poor old grandmaDue to the immeasurably valuable resources of GallicahttpgallicabnffrlangEN I was able to read an illustrated edition of Perrault s Contes published in 1697 I was also able to snag a file containing all of Gustave Dor s illustrations as well see above Rating
