For the Irish


Glinda the Gallifreyan And from the Irish (which I am =])!

Here's a link to the Irish version of Cinderella- "Fair, Brown, and Trembling"

It's very different from the all-too-well-known English version, as is easy to see even from the beginning couple sentences. =]

Sarah | 5 comments Love it! My Baba is always giving me stories like these to read :)


Glinda the Gallifreyan =D For English class last year, we had to work in a group on the version of Cinderella from our descent, so that's how I found this. I just love this so much more than the English version. German is okay.... if I remember correctly, the Russian version was pretty good.

Please excuse my random rant of complete randomness! Uncalled for, I know. But, all the same. I love this version of Cinderella. =]

Fascinating--I've never read the Irish version of Cinderella before! Thanks for posting : )


Glinda the Gallifreyan You're welcome! I love looking at the different takes on a familiar story that have developed in almost every culture. I find it just really interesting.
