9780142437063: Pinocchio (Penguin Classics)

This well-known fairy tale follows the adventures of a mischievous puppet without strings, Pinocchio. Pinocchio is at once a tragicomic character, and a poor, illiterate peasant boy who has few choices in life but usually chooses to shirk his responsibilities.

In his compelling introduction, Jack Zipes discusses 'Pinocchio' in the contexts of the folk tale and the literary fairy tale, showing how Collodi subverts these traditions and raising questions about how we ''civilise'' children inuncivilised times.

About the Author:

Carlo Collodi (1826-1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini, a journalist born in Florence. For much of his life, Collodi devoted his writing to the liberation movement to free Italy from Austrian domination. In 1875, he turned his attention from politics to writing for children.

Jack Zipes is a professor of German at the University of Minnesota. A specialist in folklore, fairy tales and children's literature, he has written several books of criticism and edited anthologies of literature.

Book Description Penguin Classics, 2002. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 'But I am not like the other boys! I am the best of all boys, and I always speak the truth.'Pinocchio plays pranks upon the kindly woodcarver Geppetto, is duped by the Fox and the Cat, kills the pedantic Talking Cricket, and narrowly escapes death, with the help of the blue-haired Fairy. A wooden puppet without strings, Pinocchio is a tragicomic figure, a poor, illiterate, naughty peasant boy who has few choices in life but usually chooses to shirk his responsibilities and get into trouble. This sly and imaginative novel, alternately catastrophic and ridiculous, takes Pinocchio from one predicament to the next, and finally to an optimistic, if uncertain, ending.In his compelling introduction, Jack Zipes places Pinocchio within the traditions of the oral folk tale and the literary fairy tale, showing how Collodi subverts those traditions while raising questions about 'how we 'civilize' children in uncivilized times.'The original translation by M. A. MURRAYRevised by G. TASSINARI and Illustrated by CHARLES FOLKARDIntroduction by JACK ZIPES. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0142437069
