Pinocchio

by Carlo Collodi and Charles Folkard

Age range: 18+ years old Publication Date: 18/05/2011

RRP  $27.50 $26.95
This well-known fairy tale follows the adventures of a mischievous puppet without strings, Pinocchio. Pinocchio is at once a tragicomic character, and a poor, illiterate peasant boy who has few choices in life but usually chooses to shirk his responsibilities. In his compelling introduction, Jack Zipes discusses 'Pinocchio' in the contexts of the folk tale and the literary fairy tale, showing how Collodi subverts these traditions and raising questions about how we 'civilise' children in uncivilised times.

Carlo Collodi

Carlo Collodi (1826–1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini. The Florence native took the name of his mother's native village, where he attended school.

Collodi served in the Tuscan army during the Italian wars of independence and founded a satirical weekly, Il Lampione.

The author of novels, plays, and political sketches, he translated Charles Perrault's fairy tales from the French, and in 1881 his Storia di un burratino (Story of a Puppet) was published in installments in the Giornale per i bambini, appearing two years later in book form as The Adventures of Pinocchio.
