Beautiful Angiola: The Lost Sicilian Folk and Fairy Tales of Laura Gonzenbach
Jack ZipesISBN: 0415977223;
"The Sicilian tales in Beautiful Angiola are a revelation; not in their originality, because like all great collected folk and fairy tales they are universal. . . . What a wonderful collection for any folklorist, Italian and especially Sicilian! Strega Nona (who is Calabrese) approves!." -- Tomie dePaola Here is the complete text of Beautiful Angiola and The Robber with the Witch's Head -- plus two never-before translated stories. In the late nineteenth century, Laura Gonzenbach collected these stories throughout her native Sicily. Jack Zipes's sparkling translations bring these stories to life for English-speaking readers. Witches and princes, magic and trickery, and a parade of lively characters make Beautiful Angiola the perfect book for anyone who loves folk and fairy tales.
