As is the case with many great and memorable children s tales Pinocchio is predominated by the threat of violence and death At one point the incorrigible puppet is actually lynched by a Fox and a Cat who are after his gold coins The Talking Cricket the model for Disney s Jiminy Cricket is killed by Pinocchio using a mallet to smash him against the wall as early as chapter four The Cricket s primary offense Giving some lame moralistic advice to the anarchic puppet The Talking Cricket was a social conservative apparently Later the magical fairy a strange deus ex machina with blue hair and an even bluer temperament is introduced as the ghost of a dead child I could go on and on but you get the picture here If you don t behave children and do your schoolwork you ll probably suffer ghastly and various permutations of misery including but not limited to being eaten by a giant shark The tension lies in Collodi s celebration of in Rebecca West s hyperanalytic parlance transgression set against the book s explicit moralizing and voluble tsk tsking and pooh poohing Although the anonymous narrator states outright that peril and misfortune are the conseuences of bad behavior Collodi makes Pinocchio s adventures oddly exhilarating One wonders if the story is less proscriptive than it is a subtle lamentation of the freedoms we must surrender to become human Collodi s world is troubling to say the least We are conditioned to expect the magical in storytelling so long as there is an internal consistency Collodi however doesn t bother with logic Why does Pinocchio seem human and vulnerable in some predicaments but resilient and indomitable in others Why are the fairy s powers arbitrary and situational Why does Pinocchio turn into a donkey other than in the service of a metaphor I ll admit I m a stickler for details but the simplicity and surprising humor of Pinocchio distracts me from the fundamental realization that Collodi has created a world without rules that is overly indebted to coincidence andor providence In other words I liked it despite everything

Now I do realise that with regard to Carlo Collodi s 1883 novel Pinocchio there is indeed and like with many 19th century novels for children than a bit of moralising and so called teaching moments and messages present and featured throughout However and at least in my humble opinion much of the latter actually seems to rest rather on the surface so to speak and yes indeed if one actually delves a bit deeper and thoroughly reads between the proverbial lines of Pinocchio alongside of the moral dictates admonishing children to listen to their parents to stay in school to not tell lies etc lest terrible punishments happen there are also than enough criticisms of both society in general and precisely those parental attitudes which on the surface of Pinocchio do seem oh so cut and dry and unassailable For while Pinocchio is most definitely mischievous and full of the Devil so to speak I for one have also never really found his pranks all that inherently viciously nasty and yes uite a number of the punishments meted out against Pinocchio for simply wanting to enjoy his childhood have therefore always felt so extreme and exaggerated to and for me that I for one at least as an adult reader now consider much of Pinocchio to be rather parodistic and satiric in nature at least down below so to speak and as such the trials and tribulations Pinocchio must endure are also in my opinion often so over done that they are also and yes like a condemnation and chastisement of society of the fact that society seems to consider children as objects and as such not only totally under the control of grown ups of family teachers and so on and so on but also as basically regarded and approached as exploitable resources for in Pinocchio it becomes rather obvious that his father Gepetto and unlike in the Disney movie of the same name is first and foremost carving his little puppet boy in order for ithim to work for and do his bidding to be a tool to be made use of for monetary gain and not really because Gepetto is lonely and desires company that he actually wants a son for emotional reasons And therefore while I do very much recognise the late 19th century morality tale aspects and that they are most definitely always present and accounted for in Pinocchio for one they truly are a sign of the times of the 19th century and for two as I hope to have shown above there is most certainly and especially considerably to Carlo Collodi s children s classic than that that with Pinocchio there are multiple layers of intent and thematics and yes while if one only peruses the novel simply and without reading all too deeply and intensely the educational the message heavy admonishments and criticisms do abound below that there also rests and eually flows what I can and will only call a critical appraisal and dissection of the same and really for me the by Collodi always and continuously presented arguments in Pinocchio regarding the power and importance schooling and education these are not just the dictates of society of family but are actually and yes in fact also a way that the young can if they consider the latter as something inherently positive and important for their own personal development and self growth an important and necessary tool and a resource to advance themselves and even perhaps end up having power and influence over and above society and the generally uite restricting moral mandates imposed by it in the form of family members teachers and other similar authority figuresAnd finally if you are going to be reading Carlo Collodi s Pinocchio in the Penguin Classics edition which I do very much recommend I would strongly suggest that you do NOT read Jack Zipes excellent and informative introduction until AFTER you have actually finished perusing the novel itself so as to avoid possible spoilers and really I personally do wish that Penguin Classics and other such series of classic literature would consider not having the analyses of the featured novels etc appear as introductions but as afterwords for almost all of the introductions I have read to date in the Penguin Classics books series ALWAYS tend to contain uite a large number of content spoilers and indeed they also can very easily influence how one then decides to read and approach what follows which I definitely do find potentially problematic in and of itself as especially and in particular one s first perusal of a given piece of literature should in my opinion be free of and from the musings of others at least as much as possible

Read & Download Le avventure di Pinocchio 109 Read the classic Italian fantasy as it was originally written even if you are just learning Italian If you only know the animated film this book will surprise you with its rich surreal story This Dual Language Interactive Alternating Chapter book offer a new way to read and learn a foreign language The patent pending GrokReader interwoven and overlappin. I don t have kids I read this for pleasure as a 32 year old man And surprisingly I definitely enjoyed it As I made my way through the book though I kept trying to picture what a kid would think It s very weird VERY weird and kind of dark too I m not very familiar with the Disney version of this story but I m sure Pinocchio doesn t murder that singing cricket with a hammer like he does on page 13 And things like the growing of his nose when he lies are not major plot points in the book at all In fact it only happens twice and both times it is addressed for only slightly than a paragraph Basically the story is about an insolent little marionette who through folly disobedience and naivety is subjected to a constant slew of misfortunes each one ridiculous and over the top than the last And although the overarching moral to this tale that being GO TO SCHOOL YOU DUMB LITTLE DONKEYS is rather reductive and simplistic the story is odd enough and the imagination of the author is unruled and unbound enough that the well worn lesson is not a hindranceHere s a personal note I love books translated from other languages into English Sentence structure and word choice are often juxtaposed and arranged in ways that you normally don t get to see when reading things originally written in English Part of this is undoubtedly due to the translator as they struggle to preserve the story in its original form and part of it is due to the fact that often there is often not an analogous term for certain words or phrases It creates a certain patchwork of language that for whatever reason tickles me Almost as if the charm lies in its sloppiness or imperfection I actually downloaded two different translations of this to my Kindle and read the first chapter of each before deciding on which translator s voice I preferredIn the end I can t really say if your kids will like this All I can say is I did And I m kind of like a giant kid
