Gypsy Folk Tales

4.09  ·  Rating details ·  11 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
These fairy tales are full of unusual fantasy. Sometimes humorous, sometimes sorrowful in tone. They reflect the characteristics of the gypsies: wit, imagination, stormy and untamed natures, fearlessness and modesty. They also reveal a love for music, nature and a free open life.

Magic Violins, Terrible Ogres, Beautiful Princesses and so much more!
Hardcover, 199 pages
Published 1966 by Paul Hamlyn

Quasi non ricordavo più di averlo. Credo che il libro fosse di mia madre, ma è mia nonna che me lo leggeva da bambina. Più ancora che le fiabe ho riconosciuto immediatamente le illustrazioni, coloratissime.
Gli zigani dei racconti sono normalmente poveri, quasi sempre nomadi e bistrattati. Raramente i potenti, spesso re o mercanti, vogliono associarsi con loro. Quello che manca loro in ricchezza viene però compensato da intelligenza, capacità di adattamento, una certa sfacciataggine o incoscienza

The only familiar story in this particular (maybe a little bit obscure) collection is the story of the three brothers.
