Ima puno dobrih dječjih priča, ali nema puno dječjih priča koje možeš čitati i kad odrasteš i svakim čitanjem pronaći nešto novo. Uronjena u usmenu tradiciju, a opet toliko originalna i zanimljiva Ivana Brlić Mažuranić zaista je nešto posebno u svijetu književnosti za djecu (a ja bi dodala i za odrasle).

Jedna od zanimljivosti autorice je i njena sposobnost da poveže slavensku mitologiju i usmenu tradiciju u naoko jednostavnu priču koja će privući i velike i male. Popularnost Ivana Brlić Mažuran

"Дрехата му дрипава, брадата му невчесана. Погледнеш ли му дрехата и брадата, ще речеш, сетен бедняк е, но ако му загледаш очите, веднага ще видиш — може и да не знае това, което ти знаеш, но знае това, което ти никога няма да знаеш."

Интересни приказки, особено като се има предвид годината на написването им - 1916! Много напомнят българските народни приказки, усеща се балканско-славянският мотив. За разлика от традиционните приказки, повечето от тези не завършват с щастлив край, в най-добрия слу

Re-reading these stories has caused a feeling of warmth around my heart and launched a series of memories of childhood and my grandmother. My favorite story is ''Stribor's Forest''.

Ponovno čitanje ovih priča izazvalo je osjećaj topline oko srce i pokrenulo niz sjećanja na djetinstvo i moju baku. Omiljena priča mi je ''Šuma Striborova''.

It's impossible to avoid these stories if you live in eastern parts of Europe and it's impossible to forget them, as in a way, they create your childhood memories.

Вили-самовили яздят великани

Когато бях на 7 години, исках да съм малката самовила Косенка, която обича да яха буйни коне, сприятелява се с великани, има торбичка с перли, които се превръщат в каквото тя пожелае, скита под земята и спасява овчарчета със самовилския си воал. Намерих я в историята за Регоч в книгата „Приказки от стари времена” от хърватската писателка Ивана Бърлич-Мажуранич. Тя не приличаше на самодивите, за които бях чела в българските приказки, въпреки че славянските ни митове са

This is a must-read. Doesn't matter if you're an adult or a child. These stories are immortal and in rang with Brother Grimm and Andersen.

Ovo je stvarno nešto što morate pročitati, bez obzira na vaše godine. Priče su besmrtne, vječne i u rangu s braćom Grimm i Andersenom.

Found an English translation online on publicdomainreview.com. Some of my favorite quotes: "At that time there were no more dragons anywhere in the world, nor witches, nor any monsters. The Holy Cross and human reason had driven them forth." ""I can’t," replied Bluster, whose heart had not grown so hard, amidst bloodshed and robbery, as Careful’s among his riches and his tallies." "Now isn’t that a wonder of wonders, that the sea should be so wide that a mother cannot encompass it, and the sun s ...more

The English translation I have of this is so bad that sadly I've had to put it down. Hopefully I'll manage to find a better translation, as I'm really interested in reading these stories.

Сказки Брлич-Мажуранич основаны на славянской мифологии. В них можно встретить многие знакомые имена и названия: Сварожича, Деву-Зарю, Змея Огненного, Мокошь, Полудницу, Остров-Буян и бел-горюч камень Алатырь. И всё же, несмотря на название, это не пересказ старинных народных сказок, а современные авторские сказки. Сюжеты оригинальные - хотя многие мотивы знакомы, подобных сюжетов я нигде не встречала.
Жаль, что я не прочитала их в детстве, наверно, они бы мне больше понравились, чем мрачные и ж

Biserni biseri prožeti motivima slovenske mitologije. Svaka priča ima skrivena značenja koja se pronalaze tek nakon ponovnog čitanja - u zrelom dobu. I svaka priča tragična je na svoj način.

A collection of traditional folktales rewritten and added on to by the great Croatian writer Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić. This book was intended for young kids, but is one of the best examples of both Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić's work and also of Croatian folktales, so it's worth reading for scholars or anyone keenly interested in Croatian literature or in children's literature. And it's enjoyable, certainly, too: vivid, fast-paced, and romantic.

Ova knjiga je bezvremeni klasik i ima nezamjenjivu sentimentalnu vrijednost. Za mene predstavlja djetinjstvo i sve uspomene koje dolaze uz to. Svaki put kada ju čitam naviru osjećaji nostalgije, te vjerujem da bismo na ovu knjigu trebali gledati kao na vrstu nacionalnog blaga i sačuvati ju za nadolazeće generacije.

Uz aizmugurējā vāka reklamēto dziļo orģinalitāti galīgi ne vienmēr spēju saskatīt, vairāk uztveru tās kā pierakstītas tautas pasakas, nevis literāru jaunradi, bet ko var gribēt no cilvēka, kas savlaik ir izlasījis ļoti daudz tautu daudz pasaku. Tomēr man patika, jo man patīk lasīt dažādu tautu brīnumpasakas.

There are many good short stories about fairies , magic and myths. I loved the story of Stribor's Forest, it the best one among the others , the Brownies were very joyful , I loved them.

Priče su prekrasne.
Šteta što su teško razumljive današnjoj djeci, pojmovi koji se spominju u knjizi su jedva razumljivi i nama malo starijima.

Within her native land, as well as internationally, she has been praised as the best Croatian writer for children.

She started writing poetry, diaries and essays rather early but her works were not published until the beginning of the 20th century.
Her book Croatian Tales of Long Ago (Priče iz davnine), published in 1916, is among the most popular today.In the book Mažuranić created a series of new
