Description

Within four days, the date-tree had grown as tall as a woman, and out of it came a Fairy, who said to Zezolla, "What do you wish for?"

Before Perrault and the Brothers Grimm, Basile penned the first modern literary version of the Cinderella fairytale. It is the story of Zezolla, the daughter of an Italian Prince, who is betrayed by her governess and forced to live the life of a servant -- that is until the King announces a feast. With assistance from a date-tree given to her by the Fairies of Sardinia, Zezolla is able to attend the feast and her life is forever changed.

In addition, this book contains The She-Bear -- a close variant of The Cat Cinderella, also from Giambattista Basile's The Pentamerone -- for an English readership to enjoy.

[Folklore Type: ATU-510: Cinderella and Catskin - A + B (Persecuted Heroine + Unnatural Love)]
