Aesop's Fables Baśnie Braci Grimm Baśnie Braci Grimm i Mini Mitologia Nordycka - Cóż - wiele serwerów posiłkuje się moją pracą autorską bez pytania mnie o zgodę. Niektóre idą tak daleko, że wprawdzie kopiują i wklejają wszystko bez namysłu, ale dbają o to by pominąć moje nazwisko. Wychodzi na to, że godziny i dni na tłumaczenia tekstów Braci Grimm poświęcił Gal Anonim, a skoro on, to nie ja. Ja jestem złodziejem. Nigdy nie oczekiwałem wynagrodzenia za swoją pracę. Skoro jestem okradany z czegoś, co rozdaję za darmo, to pytam się o sens dalszej pracy Na zakończenie Adres Kontaktowy: forfun małpa - niezmiernie rzeadko (ostatnio wcale) sprawdzam pocztę, dlatego polecam księgę gości.

Suffolk History and Past Times - Yesterdays - Enid Blyton As a child my book shelves were filled with the books of Enid Blyton, the writer of children's adventure stories like the Famous Five the Secret Seven and one of my real favourites The Wishing Chair, which I still have to this day. Enid Blyton was born in 1897 above a shop in East Dulwich in London. Her father Thomas Blyton was a cutlery salesman from Sheffield, who enjoyed painting, writing poetry, playing the piano and taking photographs. Enid is said to have adored him. For her mother there appears to have been little love. Despite being rather musically inclined, Enid decided to train as a kindergarten teacher at Ipswich High School, and then went on to open her own infants' school taking on about 14 pupils. In 1924, Enid married Hugh Pollock, a soldier-turned-publisher, a divorcee eight years her senior. Enid Blyton died in 1968, but her books live on to this day.

BookGlutton Hittite/Hurrian Mythology The Hurrians occupied the land between the Hittites and Assyria, having descended from the mountains south of the Caspian Sea. They ruled the kingdom of Mitanni. In the late 15th century B.C. the Hittite empire's beginning is marked by an influx of Hurrian names into the royal family. Tudhalyas I (1420 B.C.) reunited Western Anatolia under Hittite rule, and retook Allepo but lost the Black Sea coast to the Kaska tribes. After some difficulty with the Mittani the Hittites resurged under King Suppilulimas around 1344-1322 taking a firmer hold on Syria. The Hittites were a patriarchal, highly agricultural society. You will notice that many of the names carry an optional 's' as a suffix, which comes from the nominative case ending for Hittite. Alalu(s) He was the king in heaven in olden days and Anus was the first among the gods. Anu(s) (Akkadian in origin) While Alalus was king in heaven, Anus was more powerful. Kumarbi(s) - 'the father of all gods' according to the Hurrians. Imbaluris Takitis

Fairy tale For a comparison of fairy tale with other kinds of stories, such as myths, legends and fable, see Traditional story. Fairy tales are found in oral and in literary form. The history of the fairy tale is particularly difficult to trace because only the literary forms can survive. Still, the evidence of literary works at least indicates that fairy tales have existed for thousands of years, although not perhaps recognized as a genre; the name "fairy tale" was first ascribed to them by Madame d'Aulnoy in the late 17th century. The older fairy tales were intended for an audience of adults, as well as children, but they were associated with children as early as the writings of the précieuses; the Brothers Grimm titled their collection Children's and Household Tales, and the link with children has only grown stronger with time. Folklorists have classified fairy tales in various ways. Terminology[edit] Definition[edit] History of the genre[edit] Folk and literary[edit] History[edit] Later works[edit]
