    Italian Folktales ePUB ✓ ☆ MOBI sov skaars.co italian book, folktales pdf, Italian Folktales KindleIt is a great collection of traditional folktales many of which exist in other traditions in different versions I read the Italian version as a kid and I still have fond memories of it This translation may not be perfect in capturing the tones and colors of the original but it works What is really poor is the overall uality of the paper print and small font which makes it hard to read and the editorial work which left here and there typos and other avoidable mistakes

    Italian Folktales ePUB ✓ ☆ MOBI sov skaars.co italian book, folktales pdf, Italian Folktales KindleItalian Folktales by Italo Calvino is a marvelous collection of stories akin to Grimms Fairy Tales or Charles Parrault’s Tales of Mother Goose As the preface explains Italy lacked until this book a ‘comprehensive book of Italian folk tales one that would be representative of the entire country and intended for popular consumption as well’ Calvino must have expended an immense effort working through 19th century source materials to compile these stories but none of this scholarly toil is recorded in the book except for brief mention in the preface The book includes no information about where and when each story appeared what variations exist echoes in neighboring countries none of that This is not a work of anthropology or literary history but as the title says a collection of folk tales What distinguishes the book isn’t scholarly embellishment but the fact that the stories

    Italian Folktales ePUB ✓ ☆ MOBI sov skaars.co italian book, folktales pdf, Italian Folktales KindleItalian Folktales selected and edited by Italo Calvino 1923 1985 and translated by George Martin is an embarrassment of riches Consisting of 200 folktales from all over Italy the collection brims with magical tales animal fables legends and anecdotes about benighted kingdoms invisible brides serpent kings princesses with horns witches wizards fairies knights Short and uick paced the tales are full of intrigues mysteries disappearances and transformations Infinitely varied a mixture of the real and the unreal they are consistent in their sense of morality always at the end the victory of the good and the punishment of the bad

    Italian Folktales ePUB ✓ ☆ MOBI sov skaars.co italian book, folktales pdf, Italian Folktales KindleWhen I was a bride my husband gave this to me in Italian Now that I'm ancient myself I wanted to consider each story within my native language Each tale is remarkable because of its honing over centuries to the traditions of a specific city state within the now unified Italy The themes are decidedly different from those of Germanic origins Perhaps these will set your heart wisdom aflame
