English to Spanish
THIS EDITION: The dual-language text has been arranged into sub-paragraphs and paragraphs, for quick and easy cross-referencing. The Spanish translation has been modernised and amended to suit this dual language project. The revised English text is in part a translation from Spanish. Essentially, Perrault's fairy tales have been rewritten in contemporary English from the Spanish translation. The emphasis is on attaining a high correlation between each set of text fragments. The stories were originally written in French.
BRIEF SYNOPSIS: This book is a collection of eight fairy tales that were originally published in 1697. The Grimm brothers rewrote many of these stories. However, in many ways they are remarkably different versions. The full title, as translated into English, is "Tales and Stories of the Past with Morals: Tales of Mother Goose." The Spanish subtitle is, "Los Cuentos de Mamá Ganso." The stories include:
Sleeping Beauty in the Woods; Cinderella; Little Finger; Puss in Boots; Riquet with the Tuft; Blue Beard; The Fairy; Little Red Riding-Hood.
AUTHOR: Charles Perrault (1628 - 1703) is often times considered the founder of the modern fairy tale genre. Although, some of his stories follow themes from earlier authors, and he did not coin the phrase 'fairy tale'.
