📒The Truth About ✍ Stephen Curtis
📝The Truth About Book Synopsis : Throughout times people have told stories and tales. At first these tales were told orally. Oral tradition, or oral lore as it may be known, is a form of human communication wherein knowledge and cultural material is received, preserved and transmitted orally from one generation to another. This transmission is through speech or song and may include folktales and fairy tales. They were passed on from father to son or mother to daughter. One generation after another could enjoy these tales. These stories that we heard as small children, were usually folktales and fairy stories. Tales that our parents and their parents heard when they were young, passed down through the generations. They were stories of hopes and dreams, of meetings with giants, wicked witches and goblins that inflict harm. Or kind fairies and dragons who restore peace and order. But not all these stories were faithfully reproduced. Some, for one reason or another, were changed and one could even say twisted. Was it to protect the guilty? Unfortunately the reasons are lost and we may never find out. It was only by being diligent and refusing to give up the pursuit of truth that I stumbled on these few accounts of what really happened. I can only hope that you the reader can understand the agony these persons, who were falsely portrayed, suffered in their lifetime. I can only present the truth here and let you be the judge.

📒National Dreams ✍ Jennifer Schacker
📝National Dreams Book Synopsis : Fairy tales and folktales have long been mainstays of children's literature, celebrated as imaginatively liberating, psychologically therapeutic, and mirrors of foreign culture. Focusing on the fairy tale in nineteenth-century England, where many collections found their largest readership, National Dreams examines influential but critically neglected early experiments in the presentation of international tale traditions to English readers. Jennifer Schacker looks at such wondrous story collections as Grimms' fairy tales and The Arabian Nights in order to trace the larger stories of cross-cultural encounter in which these books were originally embedded. Examining aspects of publishing history alongside her critical readings of tale collections' introductions, annotations, story texts, and illustrations, Schacker's National Dreams reveals the surprising ways fairy tales shaped and were shaped by their readers. Schacker shows how the folklore of foreign lands became popular reading material for a broad English audience, historicizing assumed connections between traditional narrative and children's reading. The tales imported and presented by such British writers as Edgar Taylor, T. Crofton Croker, Edward Lane, and George Webbe Dasent were intended to stimulate readers' imaginations in more ways than one. Fairy-tale collections provided flights of fancy but also opportunities for reflection on the modern self, on the transformation of popular culture, and on the nature of "Englishness." Schacker demonstrates that such critical reflections were not incidental to the popularity of foreign tales but central to their magical hold on the English imagination. Offering a theoretically sophisticated perspective on the origins of current assumptions about the significance of fairy tales, National Dreams provides a rare look at the nature and emergence of one of the most powerful and enduring genres in English literature.
📒Fairytales A World Between The Imaginary ✍ Carmela Bernadetta Scala
📝Fairytales A World between the Imaginary Book Synopsis : This book investigates Basile’s contribution to the establishment of fairytales as a literary genre; the focus is on his masterpiece Lo cunto de li Cunti. The volume examines Basile’s work’s debt to tradition and its influence on posterity, while also studying the author’s unique use of metaphors in the rich Neapolitan dialect. As this study reveals, metaphors in Lo cunto de li cunti are not used simply as a mean of embellishment; rather they are employed as a way to inform the reader of the rich folkloric tradition of Naples during the baroque times, as well as of Basile’s discontent with the socio-political situation of his times. The use of metaphors is so pervasive that one could argue that the book is itself a metaphor through which Basile conveys his ideals and his utopia of a liberated Naples and a more just society; as well as the importance of the Neapolitan dialect and its linguistic registers. Furthermore, the book also proposes a new interpretation of the female characters of the tales and it instigates a discussion on gender roles in both modern and past societies.
📒Our Planet In The World Of Fairytales ✍ Takouhi Minassian
📝Our Planet in the World of Fairytales Book Synopsis : As the name suggests, this book is a well-versed combination of truth and fantasy. Our planet which is known as a place full of mystery is also deeply embedded with various tales attached to it. This book is full of concepts and history which is told to the characters and the kids who are growing up to be the future of this planet. The book also teaches the readers about moral and cultural aspects. Takouhi through the plot teaches the readers about the contemporary issues. The story is full of messages which play a great role in educating both the children and the grown-ups. The science and technology which explains that our planet is made of many compounds and there are oceans and seas, hills and mountains, water and life, is still not fully explored. Even though our planet is not the only planet in the world, still as we inhabit this planet and the human life exists only here, therefore there are many stories attached with the name of our planet. This book consists of seventy-six pages. It has ten chapters. Each chapter is based on a unique story in itself. The writer has weaved the story around Egypt, Africa, and Siberia. The story revolves around a young girl and how she interacts with everyone around her. Be it her mother, her pets or her friends, the young girl named, Lora, is full of life, love, and happiness. The story is full of messages even though at times it feels like we are living a life of a kid. The writer brings out the inner kid which is hiding somewhere in all of us. The use of imagery is so prominent that with each passing word, the scene gets clear and clear in the reader
