The Tale of Tales, made up of forty-nine fairy tales within a fiftieth frame story, contains the earliest versions of celebrated stories like Rapunzel, All-Fur, Hansel and Gretel, The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella. The tales are bawdy and irreverent but also tender and whimsical, acute in psychological characterization and encyclopedic in description. They are also evocative of marvelous worlds of fairy-tale unreality as well as of the everyday rituals of life in seventeenth-century Naples. Yet because the original is written in the nonstandard Neopolitan dialect of Italian—and was last translated fully into English in 1932—this important piece of Baroque literature has long been inaccessible to both the general public and most fairy-tale scholars. Giambattista Basile’s "The Tale of Tales, or Entertainment for Little Ones" is a modern translation that preserves the distinctive character of Basile’s original. Working directly from the original Neopolitan version, translator Nancy L. Canepa takes pains to maintain the idiosyncratic tone of The Tale of Tales as well as the work’s unpredictable structure. This edition keeps the repetition, experimental syntax, and inventive metaphors of the original version intact, bringing Basile’s words directly to twenty-first-century readers for the first time. This volume is also fully annotated, so as to elucidate any unfamiliar cultural references alongside the text. Giambattista Basile’s "The Tale of Tales, or Entertainment for Little Ones" is also lushly illustrated and includes a foreword, an introduction, an illustrator’s note, and a complete bibliography. The publication of The Tale of Tales marked not only a culmination of the interest in the popular culture and folk traditions of the Renaissance period but also the beginning of the era of the artful and sophisticated "authored" fairy tale that inspired and influenced later writers like Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. Giambattista Basile’s "The Tale of Tales, or Entertainment for Little Ones" offers an excellent point of departure for reflection about what constitutes Italian culture, as well as for discussion of the relevance that forms of early modern culture like fairy tales still hold for us today. This volume is vital reading for fairy-tale scholars and anyone interested in cultural history.

Wer heute „Märchen“ sagt, muß nicht nur die Brüder Grimm kennen – er muß vor allem Basile gelesen haben. Giambattista Basiles Märchen der Märchen, 1634 bis 1936 und damit posthum erschienen, ist als Pentamerone (Fünf-Tage-Werk) weltberühmt geworden. Der globale Ruhm erreichte Basile allerdings erst lange nach seinem Ableben. Nicht nur der französische Märchendichter Charles Perrault hat das Pentamerone gekannt. Wieland entnahm ihm den Stoff zu seinem Pervonte, Brentano ließ sich von Basiles Texten zu seinen Italienischen Märchen inspirieren, die Brüder Grimm lieferten eine erste vollständige Inhaltsangabe. Hunderte von Erzählerinnen und Erzählern trugen Basiles Märchentypen bis in unser Jahrhundert hinein in immer neuen Varianten mündlich vor. Kluge Prinzessinnen, Tierkönige, Drachentöter, ungeschickte Tölpel, wackere Abenteurer, grimmige Oger, hilfreiche Feen, Prinzen und Könige – die altvertrauten Figuren der europäischen Märchenliteratur bevölkern dieses barocke Erzählwerk, das unter dem Deckmantel des Dialekts die zugleich phantastische wie reale mediterrane Lebenswirklichkeit des 17. Jahrhunderts erfaßt und eines der schönsten und tiefgründigsten Märchenbücher, mit Sicherheit aber die originellste Sammlung von Phantasiegeschichten darstellt.

Das Pentameron - Buch zum Film" ist die Neuausgabe des beruhmten Werkes von Giambattista Basile zur Verfilmung von Matteo Garrone, mit Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones und John C. Reilly hochkaratig besetzt. Der Marchenklassiker bietet fantastischen Filmstoff. Der neapolitanische Barockautor Giambattista Basile gilt als erster grosser Marchenerzahler Europas. Das Pentameron" (deutsch: 5-Tage-Werk) gilt als erste europaische Sammlung fantastischer Erzahlungen. Eingebettet sind die 50 Marchen des Italieners in eine Rahmenhandlung, die ebenfalls ein Marchen darstellt. Als Das Pentameron" 1636 posthum veroffentlicht wurde, trug es deshalb ursprunglich den Titel Das Marchen der Marchen." Basile erschafft mit einer grotesken, witzigen und phantasievollen Stimme eine farbige und authentische Marchenwelt, die den Brudern Grimm fur ihre Marchensammlung als Vorlage diente. Der italienische Kult-Regisseur Matteo Garrone, international bekannt fur seine Verfilmung des aufsehenerregenden Mafia-Sachbuchs Gomorrha" von Roberto Saviano, wagt sich mit seinem aktuellen Werk an die Verfilmung dieser atemberaubenden Geschichtensammlung. Die Geschichten aus dem Pentameron' bringen alle Gegensatze des Lebens zum Ausdruck: Das Gewohnliche und das Aussergewohnliche, das Magische und das Alltagliche, das Aufrichtige und das Heuchlerische, das Erhabene und das Schmutzige, Mythologie und Weisheit. Die Marchen erzahlen von Grenzlagen menschlicher Gefuhle," erklart Garrone seine Beweggrunde, die Marchen zu verfilmen. Dieses Werk ist Teil der Buchreihe TREDITION CLASSICS. Der Verlag tredition aus Hamburg veroffentlicht in der Buchreihe TREDITION CLASSICS Werke aus mehr als zwei Jahrtausenden. Diese waren zu einem Grossteil vergriffen oder nur noch antiquarisch erhaltlich. Mit der Buchreihe TREDITION CLASSICS verfolgt tredition das Ziel, tausende Klassiker der Weltliteratur verschiedener Sprachen wieder als gedruckte Bucher zu verlegen - und das weltweit!"

From Court to Forest is a critical and historical study of the beginnings of the modern literary fairy tale. Giambattista Basile's Lo cunto de Ii cunti written in Neapolitan dialect and published in 1634-36, comprises fifty fairy tales and was the first integral collection of literary fairy tales to appear in Western Europe. It contains some of the best known fairy-tales types, such as Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, Cinderella, and others, many in their earliest versions. Although it became a central reference point for subsequent fairy tale writers, such as Perrault and the Grimms, as well as a treasure chest for folklorists, Lo cunto de Ii cunti has had relatively little attention devoted to it by literary scholars. Lo cunto constituted a culmination of the erudite interest in popular culture and folk traditions that permeated the Renaissance. But even if Basile drew from the oral tradition, he did not merely transcribe the popular materials he heard and gathered around Naples and in his travels. He transformed them into original tales distinguished by vertiginous rhetorical play, abundant representations of the rituals of everyday life and the popular culture of the time, and a subtext of playful critique of courtly culture and the canonical literary tradition. This work fills a gap in fairy-tale and Italian literary studies through its rediscovery of one of the most important authors of the Italian Baroque and the genre of the literary fairy tale.

Composed in the 1630s, Giambattista Basile’s The Tale of Tales, later known as the Pentameron, is a sophisticated, affectionate, often wicked parody of Boccaccio’s 14th century masterpiece, the Decameron, containing fifty tales within an intricate framing story. Importantly, among its stories are the earliest literary versions of famous fairy tales such as Cinderella, Rapunzel, The Sleeping Beauty and Hansel and Gretel. This is only the fourth translation of the complete text into English. With its scholarly introduction, notes, and up-to-date bibliography, it will appeal to anyone studying European literature or the fairy tale in general, its history and subsequent development, as well as anyone wishing to trace specific themes within the genre and their different treatments.

Out of the Woods studies the birth and early evolution of the literary fairy tale in Italy and France in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, from the early Italian collections (Straparola and Basile), through the "first wave" of fairy tale production in the France of Louis XIV (Perrault and d'Aulnoy), up to later eighteenth-century manipulations and transformations (Hamilton, Gozzi, Casanova). The tales analyzed here were appropriated from the oral tradition and transformed by professional men and women of letters into sophisticated literary creations for an elite audience of court and salon frequenters. Thus, far from being minor works or "entertainment for little ones," these fantastic tales contributed to an interrogation and revision of the cultural history of their times, offering new paradigms of narrative representation and social interaction.

While other collections of stories are fairy tales, Basile's work is the first collection in which all the stories fit in that single category. He did not transcribe them from the oral tradition as a modern collector would, instead writing them in Neapolitan, and in many respects was the first writer to preserve oral intonations.

Die Kunstmärchen gehören zu den beliebtesten Erzählformen der Weltliteratur. Kaum ein deutschsprachiger Autor des 20. Jahrhunderts hat diese Tradition auf vergleichbare Weise fortgesetzt wie Hermann Hesse. Das Spektrum reicht von den Erzähltraditionen Boccaccios und den Geschichten aus Tausendundeiner Nacht bis zu phantastischen Satiren und psychoanalytisch inspirierten Traumdichtungen. Sie modernisieren die klassischen Märchenthemen: Glück und Unglück der Liebe, Eitelkeit der Wünsche, Vergänglichkeit und Sehnsucht nach Geborgenheit. Diese Märchen sind stets lebensbezogen. Das Magische darin zielt auf die Entwicklungsfähigkeit des Menschen, die für Hesse mit der Pubertät durchaus nicht erschöpft ist.
