Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

The tale of twin sons of the Emperor of Greece who were separated at birth. One is raised in the court of Pepin, King of France; the other, in a forest by a bear. This is the story of their reunion and their quest to discover who they are. Full color.

From Publishers Weekly:

Meticulously researched and stunningly illustrated, this medieval prose romance has been translated and recast by Burkert ( Cinderella ) into Chaucerian iambic pentameter. The mysterious Pacolet narrates as a 16th-century troupe of itinerant players performs the story of two brothers separated at birth, one raised at court and the other by a bear in the forest. It is a tale of chivalry, brotherhood and forgiveness, wherein the brothers conquer the awful Green Knight and outwit the giant Ferragus. At play's end, the brothers reunite their estranged parents who choose "to dwell in joy and not in bitterness." Like Brueghel, whose paintings inspired the illustrations, Burkert's canvases are brilliantly colored and richly detailed, full of round-faced peasants and robust farmers. The exuberant actors--the "giant" teetering on his stilts, the false Archbishop who doubles as a bear--are as endearing as the complicated story that asks its readers to "Bear witness, / Friends, to forces of forgiveness, / True devotion, and humility, / For they unite us as a family." A Floyd Yearout Book. All ages.
