In the first full-length study in English of Carlo Collodi's The Adventures of Pinocchio, the authors show how the checkered history of the puppet illuminates social change from the pre World War One era to the present. The authors argue that most Americans know a trivialized, diluted version of the tale, one such source is Disney's perennial classic. The authors also discover that when adults are introduced to the 'real' story, they often deem it as unsuitable for children. Placing the puppet in a variety of contexts, the authors chart the progression of this childhood tale that has frequently undergone dramatic revisions to suit America's idea of children's literature.

Oliver Twist attends a costume ball that ends with parliamentary candidate Trevor Newsome disappearing days before the election. Pinocchio, the Blue Fairy, and Puss in Boots occupy a Swiss castle where immortality may lie hidden. When Long John Silver arrives, Oliver has to do some fast thinking to protect more than just his own life from the pirate who says he only cares about rescuing his daughter. "Twist! Look out!" I spun and swung wildly as the crack of a Colt revolver split the air. Sluefoot Sue had both her firearms out and was shooting at something below me. To my astonishment tentacles rose out of the Thames and wrapped themselves around the Catfish. Each time one of Sue's bullets struck them they disappeared under the water again, but when she paused to reload they re-emerged and began to reach for me, climbing the Catfish sub. I hastily winched myself over toward the dock but a tentacle grabbed hold of my leg just as I started to set myself down. It flung me down on the dock and started dragging me to the edge. "Hey, boss lady!" Dobbs, Sue's assistant, hollered out from inside the workshop. I was just able to see a pump-action shotgun cartwheel through the air and land in Sue's gloved hands. Just before it began to blast me deaf, I realized that it was in fact no ordinary shotgun, rather had some sort of gattling action, and a bit more. I hoped I would get a better look at it rather than end up 20,000 leagues under in some sea monster's maw.

While Carlo Collodi's internationally revered Pinocchio may not have been the single source of the modernist fascination with puppets and marionettes, the book's appearance on the threshold of the modernist movement heralded a new artistic interest in the making of human likenesses. And the puppets, marionettes, and other forms that figure so vividly and provocatively in modernist and avant-garde drama can, according to Harold Segel, be regarded as Pinocchio's progeny. Segel argues that the philosophical, social, and artistic proclivities of the modernist movement converged in the discovery of an exciting new relevance in the puppet and marionette. Previously viewed as entertainment for children and fairground audiences, puppets emerged as an integral component of the modernist vision. They became metaphors for human helplessness in the face of powerful forces -- from Eros and the supernatural to history, industrial society, and national myth. Dramatists used them to satirize the tyranny of bourgeois custom and convention, to deflate the arrogance of the powerful, and to breathe new life into a theater that had become tradition-bound and commercialized. Pinocchio's Progeny offers a broad overview of the uses of these figures in European drama from 1890 to 1935. It considers developments in France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Poland and Czechoslovakia. In his introduction, Segel reviews the premodernist literary and dramatic treatment of the puppet and marionette from Cervantes' Don Quixote to the turn-of-the- century European cabaret. His epilogue considers the appearance of puppets and marionettes in postmodern European and American drama by examining worksby such dramatists as Jean-Claude Van Itallie, Heiner MA1/4ller, and Tadeusz Kantor.

From NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling and Award Winning Author Selena Kitt - Over 2 Million Books Sold! Do you love fairy tales? Then don't miss these happily ever afters! A BRAND NEW Modern Wicked Fairy Tales series from Selena Kitt! In this modern version of the fairy tale classic, Pinocchio, marine Levi Woodyer--known as "Woody" to his special ops team--is on a medical discharge, a man with a haunted past, a painful present and an uncertain future. His father watches, powerless to help his son, as Levi slips further between the cracks, and troubled Levi doesn't seem to be too interested in helping himself. But when his father's simple bribe finally gets Levi out of the house to a physical therapy appointment, his encounter with former high school sweetheart, Linnea Fey, just might put him on the path to wholeness again. EXCERPT: "Linney." He sighed, shrugging his jacket on. She was a tall girl, and when her chin was set high and defiant like that, she seemed even taller. He was six feet tall and she almost met him eye to eye. "I told you--hope is the enemy." "No, Levi." Her hand on his upper arm, the tattoo of a cricket underneath. She stopped him, disarmed him in a way no one had in years. "You're the enemy. You were always your own worst enemy." He couldn't deny that. "I have to go." "I want to see you again," she urged, stepped between him and the exit, standing on tiptoes so they were, indeed, eye to eye. "I told you..." He sighed, reaching around her for the doorknob. "I can come to you." She leaned back against the door, keeping it closed. "Linney..." They were close now, closer than they'd been. Close enough he could have closed that gap and kissed her like he used to, ending whatever argument had been about to erupt. "I want to." She pressed her fingers to his lips, quieting whatever words he'd been about to say. It clearly crossed the line from professional to personal but he was still stuck on the words I want to half-whispered from those glistening pink lips. He felt the press of her fingers but imagined her lips, the sweet surrender of her mouth under his. "My number's on that slip of paper," she whispered. "Call me if you want me." Not "call me for an appointment," or "call if you want to see me," but "call me if you want me." And he did want her. More than he was ready to admit and certainly more than he had any right to. ------ MODERN WICKED FAIRY TALES A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Beauty A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Bluebeard A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Briar Rose A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: The Frog Prince A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Goldilocks A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Gretel A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Peter and the Wolf A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Pinocchio A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Rapunzel A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Red A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale: Wendy

Over the past century, Disney has grown from a small American animation studio into a multipronged global media giant. Today, the company’s annual revenue exceeds the GDP of over 100 countries, and its portfolio has grown to include Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ABC, and ESPN. With a company so diversified, is it still possible to identify a coherent Disney vision or message? Disney Culture proposes that there is still a unifying Disney ethos, one that can be traced back to the corporate philosophy that Walt Disney himself developed back in the 1920s. Yet, as cultural historian John Wills demonstrates, Disney’s values have also adapted to changing social climates. At the same time, the world of Disney has profoundly shaped how Americans view the world. Wills offers a nuanced take on the corporate ideologies running through animated and live-action Disney movies from Frozen to Fantasia, from Mary Poppins to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But Disney Culture encompasses much more than just movies as it explores the intersections between Disney’s business practices and its cultural mythmaking. Welcome to “the Disney Way.”
