A woman who expects to give birth to a child is seized with a great longing for some herb or fruit generally parsley growing in the witch's garden. The witch ogress catches her picking it, and only releases her on condition that she shall give her the child after it is born and has reached a definite age. The following Sicilian story from Gonzenbach No. Once upon a time there were seven women, neighbors, all of whom were seized with a great longing for some jujubes which only grew in a garden opposite the place where they all lived, and which belonged to a witch.
Now this witch had a donkey that watched the garden and told the old witch when any one entered. The seven neighbors, however, had such a desire for the jujubes that they entered the garden and threw the donkey some nice soft grass, and while he was eating it they filled their aprons with jujubes and escaped before the witch appeared. This they did several times, until at last the witch noticed that some one had been in her garden, for many of the jujubes were gone.
She questioned the donkey, but he had eaten the nice grass and noticed nothing. Then she resolved the third day to remain in the garden herself. In the middle of it was a hole, in which she hid and covered herself with leaves and branches, leaving only one of her long ears sticking out.
The seven neighbors once more went into the garden and began picking jujubes, when one of them noticed the witch's ear sticking out of the leaves and thought it was a mushroom and tried to pick it. Then the witch jumped out of the hole and ran after the women, all of whom escaped but one. The witch was going to eat her, but she begged hard for pardon and promised never to enter the garden again.
The witch finally forgave her on the condition that she would give her her child, yet unborn, whether a boy or girl, when it was seven years old. The poor woman promised in her distress, and the witch let her go. Some time after the woman had a beautiful little girl whom she named Angiola. When Angiola was six years old, her mother sent her to school to learn to sew and knit. On her way to school she had to pass the garden where the witch lived. One day, when she was almost seven, she saw the witch standing in front of her garden.
She beckoned to Angiola and gave her some fine fruits and said: Tell your mother you have seen your aunt, and she sends her word not to forget her promise. One day, however, the witch became angry and said: Angiola went home in tears and showed her mother her finger. I must give my poor child to the witch, or else she will eat her up in her anger. There Angiola lived with the witch, who treated her very kindly, for she loved her as her own child. When the witch came home after her excursions, she stood under the window and cried: Now it happened one day when Angiola had grown to be a large and beautiful maiden, that the king's son went hunting and chanced to come where the tower was.
He was astonished at seeing the house without any door, and wondered how the people got in. Just then the old witch returned home, stood under the window, and called: This pleased the prince greatly, and he hid himself near by until the witch went away again.
Then he went and stood under the window and called: When she saw the prince, she was much frightened at first, but he addressed her in a friendly manner and begged her to fly with him and become his wife.
She finally consented, and in order that the witch should not know where she had gone she gave all the chairs, tables, and cupboards in the house something to eat; for they were all living beings and might betray her.
The broom, however, stood behind the door, so she did not notice it, and gave it nothing to eat. Then she took from the witch's chamber three magic balls of yarn, and fled with the prince. The witch had a little dog that loved the fair Angiola so dearly that it followed her.
Soon after they had fled, the witch came back, and called: When she could not find Angiola, she asked the tables and chairs and cupboards: But Angiola threw down behind her one of the magic balls of yarn, and there arose a great mountain of soap.
When the witch tried to climb it she slipped back, but she persevered until at last she succeeded in getting over it, and hastened after the fugitives. Then Angiola threw down the second ball of yarn, and there arose a great mountain covered all over with nails small and large. Again the witch had to struggle hard to cross it; when she did she was almost flayed.
When Angiola saw that the witch had almost overtaken them again, she threw down the third ball, and there arose a mighty torrent. The witch tried to swim across it, but the stream kept increasing in size until she had at last to turn back. Then in her anger she cursed the fair Angiola, saying: The prince was very sorrowful and said: They would never allow me to marry a maiden with a dog's face.
He himself returned to his parents; but whenever he went hunting he visited poor Angiola. She often wept bitterly over her misfortunes, until one day the little dog that had followed her from the witch's said: I will go to the witch and beg her to remove the enchantment.
She can keep her dog's face now! As soon as she washed in the water, her dog's face disappeared and she became beautiful again, more beautiful even than she had been before.
The prince, full of joy, took her to the palace, and the king and queen were so pleased with her beauty that they welcomed her, and gave her a splendid wedding, and all remained happy and contented. One of the brothers undertakes some difficult task liberation of princess, etc. The following story from Pisa Comparetti, No. Once upon a time there was a fisherman who had a wife and many children. Now it happened that the fisherman did not catch any fish for a time and did not know how to support his family.
One day he cast his net and drew out a large fish which began to talk: But in a few days the fish were gone and the fisherman cast his net again, and again caught the big fish, which said: Give half to the king, a piece to your wife, one to your dog, and one to your horse; the bones you will tie to the kitchen rafters; your wife will bear sons, and when anything happens to one of them the fish-bone will sweat drops of blood.
The boys grew up and went to school and learned much and prospered. One day the oldest said: He arrived at a forest, and there saw a lion, an eagle, and an ant which had found a dead ass that they wanted to divide among themselves, but could not agree and so were quarrelling.
They saw the youth, and called on him to make the division. He was afraid at first, but took heart and gave the lean meat to the eagle, the brains to the ant, and the rest to the lion.
They were all satisfied, and the youth continued his way. After he had gone a few steps the animals called him back, and the lion said: The youth thanked them and departed. As he was passing along the shore of the sea, he saw a dog-fish that was out of the water; he put it back into the sea.
This year the lot has fallen on the king's daughter. If they do not give her up, the cloud will throw so many things into the city that we shall all be killed. The ceremony began with muffled drums and an escort of soldiers; the king and queen in tears accompanied their daughter, who was taken to the top of a mountain, placed in a chair, and left alone. The youth, who had followed them, hid himself behind a bush. Then the cloud came, took the young girl in her lap, took her finger in her mouth, and began to suck her blood.
This was what the cloud lived on. The princess remained half dead, like a log, and then the cloud carried her away. The youth, who had seen all this, cried: They arrived at a palace, the doors flew open and the cloud entered and carried the princess up-stairs. The eagle alighted on a tree opposite and saw a large room all full of young girls in bed. When the cloud entered they exclaimed: She put the princess in a bed, and said to the girls: The youth was near and heard everything; he said: There he resumed his shape, and the girls were astonished at seeing a man appear so suddenly, and one of them said to him: She gave him a ring, and the youth took it and went to the queen, told her where her daughter was, and asked her to send some food to the poor girl.
She did so, and the youth retraced his steps, reached the palace, informed the girls, and drew up the food with ropes. He then said to the girls: On that mountain is a tigress with seven heads. If you wish me to die, a lion must fight that tigress and tear off all seven of her heads. In her body is an egg, and if any one hits me with it in the middle of my forehead I shall die; but if that egg falls into my hands the tigress will come to life again, resume her seven heads, and I shall live.
When the fairy had departed, the youth came forth and they told him all. He took all these things and shut himself up in the room, and said to the child: I am going to turn into a lion. As soon as he had instructed the child, he took all the things and went to the mountain where the tigress was. Then he filled the pan with bread and wine and said to the child: Meanwhile the fairy returned home, saying: The fairy kept losing her strength all the time.
The youth rested two days before tearing off the last head, and then resumed the fight. At evening the last head was torn off, and the dead tigress disappeared, but the youth was not quick enough to catch the egg, which rolled from her body into the sea and was swallowed by the dog-fish. Then the youth went to the sea: He took it and went in search of the fairy, and suddenly appeared before her with the egg in his hand.
The fairy wanted him to give her the egg, but he made her first restore all the young girls to health and send them home in handsome carriages. Then the youth took the egg, struck it on the fairy's forehead, and she fell down dead. When the youth saw that she was really dead, he entered a carriage with the king's daughter and drove to the palace.
When the king and queen saw their daughter again, they wept for joy, and married her to her deliverer. The wedding took place with great magnificence, and there were great festivities and rejoicings in the city. A few days after, the husband looked out of the window and saw at the end of the street a dense fog; he said to his wife: After he had passed through the mist, he saw a mountain on which were two beautiful ladies.
They came to meet him, and invited him to their palace. He accepted and they showed him into a room, and one of the ladies asked: Then they took him into a garden where there were many marble statues, and turned him into one, together with his dog and horse. These ladies were sisters of the fairy, and this was the way they avenged her death.
Meanwhile the princess waited and her husband did not return. One morning the father and brothers of the youth found the kitchen full of blood, which dropped from the fish-bone. He passed by the palace of the princess, who was at the window, and those brothers looked so much alike that when she saw him she thought it was her husband and called him. He entered and she spoke to him of the fog, but he did not understand her; he let her talk on, however, imagining that his brother was mixed up in that affair.
The next morning he arose and went to see the fog with his dog and horse. He passed through the fog, found the mountain and the two ladies, and, to make the story short, the same thing happened to him that happened to his brother, and he became stone.
And the queen waited, and in the father's kitchen the bone dropped blood faster than ever. The third brother too set out with his dog and horse. When he came to the palace, the princess saw him from the window, took him for her husband, and called him in. He entered and she reproved him for having made her wait so long, and spoke of the mist; but he did not understand her and said: Take care, your brothers have been turned into statues.
You will meet two ladies; if they ask you to play chess with them, here are two pawns, say that you cannot play except with your own pawns. Then make an agreement with them that, if you win, you can do with them what you please; if they win, they can do what they please with you.
If you win, and they beg for mercy, command them to restore to life all the stone statues with which the palace is filled, and when they have done so, you can do what you will with these ladies. The two ladies begged for their lives, and he granted their prayer on condition of restoring to life all those stone statues. They took a wand, touched the statues, and they became animated; but no sooner were they all restored to life than they fell on the two ladies and cut them into bits no larger than their ears.
Thus the three brothers were reunited. They related their adventures, and returned to the palace. The princess was astonished when she saw them, and did not know which was her husband.
But he made himself known, told her that these were his brothers, and they had their parents come there, and they all lived happily together, and thus the story is ended. There were once three king's sons. Two of them were going hunting one day, and did not want to take their youngest brother with them.
Their mother asked them to let him go with them, but they would not. The youngest brother, however, followed them, and they had to take him with them. They came to a beautiful plain, where they found a fine cistern, and ate their lunch near it.
After they had finished, the oldest said: When he reached the bottom, he found three handsome rooms and an old woman, who said to him: He knocked at that door, another princess appeared, who gave him a pomegranate for a remembrance and directed him to knock at a third door. It opened and the last princess appeared. Salvatore" for she knew who he was , "what have you come for? Now enter and eat; take this bottle; the magician, you see, is about rising; hide yourself behind this door, and when he awakens he will ask you: Just then the magician arose and said: The fountain invited him to drink, but he would not.
They began to fight, and at the first blow the youth cut off the magician's head. He took the head and sword, and went to the princesses and said: After they had lowered their youngest brother into the cistern, they turned around and went back to the royal palace. When they reached the cistern, they lowered the rope with the bell, saying among themselves: As the first appeared, who was the oldest, the oldest brother said: This one shall be my wife.
When she appeared the two brothers took her, and left Salvatore in the cistern, and returned to the palace. When they arrived there, they said to their father: The other sister we will marry to some other youth. He went to the city where he lived, and met a silversmith, who took him as an apprentice, feeding and clothing him. While he was with the silversmith, the king commanded the latter to make a crown for his oldest son, who was to be married: When he reached home, the silversmith was greatly disturbed, for he had such a short time to make the crown in.
My master would take refuge in a church for a trifle. What did he do? He took out the apple and commanded it to make a very beautiful crown. He hammered away, but the apple made the crown.
When it was finished he gave it to the wife of the silversmith, who took it to her husband. When the latter saw that he need not flee to the church, he went to the king, who, well pleased, invited him to the feast in the evening.
When he told this at home, the apprentice said: I will buy you some, and when there is another feast I will take you. When the latter reached home, he cried: Everything happened as before: The smith took it to the king, but after the feast came home with his shoulders black and blue from the beating he received. After a time they wanted to marry the third sister, but she said: After a year, a month, and a day, the wedding was arranged, and the smith had orders to make another crown more beautiful than the first two.
This was so that no one could say that because the young girl was a foreigner they treated her worse than the others. Again the smith was in despair, and the apprentice had to make, by the aid of his magic crown, a better and larger crown than the others.
The genre was first marked out by writers of the Renaissance , such as Giovanni Francesco Straparola and Giambattista Basile , and stabilized through the works of later collectors such as Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. Although fantasy, particularly the subgenre of fairytale fantasy , draws heavily on fairy tale motifs,  the genres are now regarded as distinct.
Folk and literary[ edit ] The fairy tale, told orally, is a sub-class of the folktale. Many writers have written in the form of the fairy tale. Yet the stories printed under the Grimm name have been considerably reworked to fit the written form. This, in turn, helped to maintain the oral tradition. According to Jack Zipes , "The subject matter of the conversations consisted of literature, mores, taste, and etiquette, whereby the speakers all endeavoured to portray ideal situations in the most effective oratorical style that would gradually have a major effect on literary forms.
Yet while oral fairy tales likely existed for thousands of years before the literary forms, there is no pure folktale, and each literary fairy tale draws on folk traditions, if only in parody. Oral story-tellers have been known to read literary fairy tales to increase their own stock of stories and treatments. Tales were told or enacted dramatically, rather than written down, and handed down from generation to generation.
Because of this, the history of their development is necessarily obscure and blurred. The stylistic evidence indicates that these, and many later collections, reworked folk tales into literary forms. Besides such collections and individual tales, in China , Taoist philosophers such as Liezi and Zhuangzi recounted fairy tales in their philosophical works. These salons were regular gatherings hosted by prominent aristocratic women, where women and men could gather together to discuss the issues of the day.
In the s, aristocratic women began to gather in their own living rooms, salons, in order to discuss the topics of their choice: This was a time when women were barred from receiving a formal education. Sometime in the middle of the 17th century, a passion for the conversational parlour game based on the plots of old folk tales swept through the salons.
Great emphasis was placed on a mode of delivery that seemed natural and spontaneous. The decorative language of the fairy tales served an important function: Porlyusica tells them that they need to pick carefully because all the teams will face a one to one match against their opponents. Natsu in rage tells everyone that he will definitely take revenge for Lucy because they had laughed at their Nakama.
He will never forgive them. The match up posted up. Everyone is preparing to see the new Fairy Tail team! As they walk forward we can see hints of them, everyone is happy with their choice because they are all very powerful!
