The English View Product. Ever heard the phrase, too much of a good thing? That was actually coined by That was actually coined by Shakespeare in this play. Most people don't know it, because when they hear the name Shakespeare they run and hide! Let's face it Beowulf is arguably one of the greatest epics ever wrote, but it is rarely appreciated Beowulf is arguably one of the greatest epics ever wrote, but it is rarely appreciated because the Old English is If you don't understand it, then you are not alone.
If you have struggled in the past reading the ancient classic, Avec les llustrations par Ch. T here are more than 3, stories that folklorists ID as "Cinderella variants" worldwide; almost every culture, every nation, has some -- native-borrowings by indigenous storytellers who use some of the themes, and some of them more indigenous -- with different cultural values embodied, as in the case of the Mi'kmaq story.
Find out about some of these versions currently in print as children's stories at The Children's literature Cinderella page maintained by Prof. Brown of the University of Calgary. I t is well known -- an astonishment and disappointment of my childhood -- that the "glass slipper" image and theme was not in the original peasant version that Perrault polished to his literary version. The peasants said d Cinderella had footgear of vair or fur, but even before Perrault, tellers had changed this to verre, glass.
Mukluks wouldn't have been too elegant, peeping out under a ball gown of cloth of gold.
Once the slipper had become delicate, gleaming and foot -killer crystal, the incident of Cinderella's running off and losing it, so that the lost slipper is used to "find" her because only her dainty foot can fit into it was added. Mukluks wouldn't fall off, dancing or running. T he peasants were more bloody-minded than elegant Perrault wanted.
Common Sense says
In the older folktale version, the elder sisters cut off toes and bunions, filling the glass slipper with blood, in an effort to jam feet into it. Too, the peasant ending has bloody revenge worked on the stepmother and stepsisters -- by the king, not the prince or Cinderella, who are off living happily ever after. The king is angry because his royal orders to present all nubile maidens at the ball for the prince's choice were disobeyed, and the stepmother and sisters also tried to prevent Cinderella from trying on the slipper, contrary to his royal proclamation.
So his torturers force them to dance themselves to death, wearing red-hot iron "boots" -- a popular torture implement of the time in the dungeons of nobility and Church. This final revenge aspect is omitted. The Victorian versions grow ever more saccarine, with the stepmother and sisters becoming just as sweet as Cinderella, once she ensconces t hem nobly in her new castle.
W hy are versions of Perrault's myth so durable -- lasting almost years beyond the origin, to countless children's versions for the 20th century, TV cartoons, Disney versions, computer software, and modern versions for escape reading -- Harlequin Romances -- for young adult women of the working class?
C ertain values built into Perrault's version, carried forward through the centuries, have given the story this endurance. It is a teaching tale for young women. Shop Indie eBooks.
