Fabliaux: Short, Comic, Coarse, Cynical Tales in Verse : Fairy Tales
Poetry. Art. The dedication page in this book of seven classic children's stories reads "for adults." Tom Marioni, author of BEER. ART AND PHILOSOPHY, has updated The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rip van Winkle, Cinderella, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and Little Red Riding Hood, making them modern, funny, and about the arts. Webster's defines fabliaux as "short, usually comic, frankly coarse, and often cynical tales in verse popular in the 12th and 13th centuries." The book's color illustrations provide a survey of etchings and woodblock prints made by the author over the past thirty years. Also available from SPD is Marioni's collection WRITINGS ON ART: TOM MARIONI 1969-1999.
