This collection of 18 Romanian folk and fairy tales contains translations of tales from Romanian which, however, comprise but a small portion of the inexhaustible treasure that exists in the nation. While the originals are scattered throughout Romanian literature this volume is an excellent companion to “Roumanian Fairy Tales and Legends” ISBN: 978-8-827544-00-6 which contains a further 15 children’s tales from Romania. Given Romania’s long and diverse cultural history, it is no surprise that the country has such a rich heritage of folk tales, fairy tales, and legends. It is also fortunate that so many of these stories survived the country’s turbulent history and were passed down throughout the ages to countless Romanian children and are now retold here. The exquisite stories in this volume are: Stan Bolovan The Wonderful Bird The Twins With the Golden Star. Youth Without Age and Life Without Death The Little Purse with two Half-pennies Mogarzea and His Son Cunning Ileane The Princess and the Fisherman Little Wild-Rose The Voice of Death The Old Woman and the Old Man The Pea Emperor The Morning Star and The Evening Star The Two Step-Sisters The Poor Boy Mother's Darling Jack Tellerchen The Fairy Aurora In approximately 82 BC, the rule of the Dacian kings was replaced by the Romans, who, in turn, were forced out by the Goths, layer supplanted by the Huns a;; by the 4th C. BC. After this, a sequence of nomadic rulers, including the Gepids, the Avars, the Bulgars, the Pechenegs, and the Cumans, ruled the area. By the Middle Ages, Romanians lived in three distinct principalities: Wallachia, Moldavia, and Transylvania, which were later ruled by the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empires. In 1859, Moldavia and Wallachia united under Prince Alexandru Ioan Cuza, but it was not until the end of WWI, in 1918, that Bessarabia, Bukovina and Transylvania proclaimed unions with the Kingdom of Romania and the modern state of Romania was born. 10% of the publisher’s profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Relief Fund for Romania. =============== TAGS: Romanian, Roumanian, Folklore, Fairy tales, myths, legends, children’s stories, bedtime, fables, traditions, Stan Bolovan, Wonderful Bird, Twins, Golden Star, Youth Without Age, Life Without Death, Little Purse, two Half-pennies, Mogarzea, Son, Cunning Ileane, Princess, Fisherman, Little Wild-Rose, Voice, Death, Old Woman, Old Man, Pea Emperor, Morning Star, Evening Star, Two, Step-Sisters, Poor Boy, Mother, Darling, Jack, Tellerchen, Fairy, Aurora

The documents, which include the printed libretti of Didelot, Taglioni, Perrot, St-L�on, Petipa, and Fokine, convey an accurate outline of balletic conventions in nineteenth-century Russia, and describe techniques of stagecraft, the social setting of ballet, the rise of criticism, and the life of ballet artists. The work of nineteenth-century Russia's principal ballet historians is also represented and the author's commentaries elucidate the documents' relevance and historical connections. The book will be an invaluable source for anyone interested in ballet or Russian culture.
