Красная шапочка
Красная шапочка - Charles Perrault,Samui... Красная шапочка - Charles Perrault,Samuil Marshak Эта знакомая нам с детства версия Красной шапочки в переводе Маршака, конечно же, сильно смягчена по сравнению с оригиналом. Вплоть до того, что я вообще не понимаю, зачем здесь на обложке имя Перро. От его исходной жутковатой сказки (в те времена народные сказки вообще на детей не ориентировались, это были просто байки, которые взрослые рассказывали друг другу) осталась только весьма сглаженная мораль о том, что "это опасно - останавливаться в лесу и разговаривать с волками", которую детям как раз и надо.
(Хотя и здесь Красной шапочке предлагается прилечь на кровать рядом с волком... чтобы взрослые тоже для себя что-то извлекли?)

Fairy Tales - Angela Carter's Version
Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault (Penguin Modern Classics) - "Beauty is a fine thing in a woman; it will always be admired. But charm is beyond price and worth more, in a long run. When her godmother dressed Cinderella up and told her how to behave at the ball, she instructed her in charm. Lovely ladies, this gift is worth more than a fancy hairdo; to win a heart, to reach a happy ending, charm is the true gift of the fairies. Without it, one can achieve nothing; with it, everything." Such words are true to its form but were ignored. The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault is a wonder of its own but some thing that may not be the liking to others. While we all heard the popular fairy tales of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Puss in Boots and Little Red Riding Hood, these are the true origins from Charles Perrault stories with others like Bluebeard, Ricky with a Turf and a few others in this book. But this... is actually Angela Carter's translated with her view of his stories that is mix with modern perspective. One can say while reading it, the moral values written for each story is just like the above. Its not that isn't true, but some of the stories like Cinderella moral value can be quite stirring. I still love the stories here, but given a 3 out of 5 star is because I know these stories some how and its nothing new that we do not know about and there are some I have not heard of. While the moral values written as a end story is interesting, I do enjoy her views of each story that she finds Perrault's fairy tales can be some thing she feel a defying moment during she translates them to her liking. Short and simple, it's a children's story for adults even though its meant for children but its seriously, written for adults.

Fairytales - Jacob Grimm,Charles Perrault,Wilhelm Grimm,Hans Christian Andersen

I would use this to counter the Grimm Brothers versions of fairytales. So that the children could see different versions. And we could compare and contrast the stories.
