Out of the woods : the origins of the literary fairy tale in Italy and France( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Out of the Woods studies the birth and early evolution of the literary fairy tale in Italy and France in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, from the early Italian collections (Straparola and Basile), through the "first wave" of fairy tale production in the France of Louis XIV (Perrault and d'Aulnoy), up to later eighteenth-century manipulations and transformations (Hamilton, Gozzi, Casanova)." "The tales analyzed here were appropriated from the oral tradition and transformed by professional men and women of letters into sophisticated literary creations for an elite audience of court and salon frequenters. Thus, far from being minor works or "entertainment for little ones," these fantastic tales contributed to an interrogation and revision of the cultural history of their times, offering new paradigms of narrative representation and social interaction."--Jacket

The adventures of Pinocchio : story of a puppet by Carlo Collodi( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in serial form from 1881 to 1883 in Il Giornale dei bambini, the many adventures of Pinocchio, Geppetto's wooden puppet who came to life to laugh, cry, and dance like a real boy, garnered immediate acclaim as a children's story. Today Italians consider the novel, along with The Divine Comedy and The Decameron, one of their most important works of literature. Readers familiar only with the Disney adaptations of Collodi's classic will be surprised by this dark masterpiece. There is no cuddly cat named Figaro. Pinocchio hurls a wooden hammer at the Talking Cricket (who is not named Jiminy) to close their first encounter. And Pinocchio himself endures harrowing cruelty at the hands of two assassins."

The tale of tales by Giambattista Basile( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soon to be a major motion picture starring Salma Hayek, John C. Reilly, Toby Jones, and Vincent Cassel: a rollicking, bawdy, fantastical cycle of 50 fairy tales told by 10 storytellers over 5 days. Before the Brothers Grimm, before Charles Perrault, before Hans Christian Andersen, there was Giambattista Basile, a seventeenth-century poet from Naples, Italy, 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 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, Zoza contrives a storytelling extravaganza: fifty fairy tales to be told by ten sharp-tongued women (including Zoza in disguise) over five days. Funny and scary, romantic and gruesome--and featuring a childless queen who devours the heart of a sea monster cooked by a virgin, and who then gives birth the very next day; a lecherous king aroused by the voice of a woman, whom he courts unaware of her physical grotesqueness; and a king who raises a flea to monstrous size on his own blood, sparking a contest in which an ogre vies with men for the hand of the king's daughter--The Tale of Tales is a fairy-tale treasure that prefigures Game of Thrones and other touchstones of worldwide fantasy literature. Read by Dorothy Dillingham Blue, Paul Boehmer, Mark Bramhall, Cassandra Campbell, Will Damron, Susan Denaker, Kirby Heyborne, Hillary Huber, Ann Marie Lee, John Lee, Rebecca Lowman, Jorjeana Marie, Kathleen McInerney, Arthur Morey, Kirsten Potter, Fred Sanders, Tara Sands, Simon Vance, and Karen White
