Sinossi

The enchanting story of The Princess and the Goblin, brilliantly introduced by Ursula Le Guin, author of the Earthsea quartet.

Princess Irene lives in a castle in a wild and lonely mountainous region. One day she discovers a steep and winding stairway leading to a bewildering labyrinth of unused passages with closed doors - and a further stairway. What lies at the top? Can the ring the princess is given protect her against the lurking menace of the boglins from under the mountain?

5.0 su 5 stelle For those who love Fairy Tales 14 agosto 2010
Di Franklin Waters - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I have not written any reviews before but I felt that the works of George MacDonald deserved reviews to bring the works of this forgotten genius back to the light of day. Especially as you can get many of them for free on your kindle. It must first be understood that George MacDonald inspired such authors as J.R.R. Tolkien, W.H. Auden, Madeline L'Engle and E. Nesbit. C.S. Lewis regarded him as his master. If you are a fan of these authors then you might want to seriously consider exploring the works of one who inspired them.

To me the Princess and the Goblin is a fairy tale. Unlike most fairy tales that are stories passed down through the ages George MacDonald wrote this one in 1872. While I have no doubt that he took many things from legend and lore and fairy tales it is nonetheless his own tale. In reading this story I felt that I was a child again reading a wondrous story where anything could happen. MacDonald knows magic and weaves magic in his tale. He also knows how Faerie and the realms of Faerie works. Having been a fan of Tolkien most of my life I have read many of his essays on the realm and I recognize the strange laws of the realm that are difficult to put down to paper but you recognize them even if you can't communicate them yourself.

The story flows quickly and is lively as it revolves around the adventures of a little girl, the Princess Irene and at times the humble honest and wise miner boy Curdie. As they have their misadventures with the Goblins under the mountain you become aware of the guidance of Irene's mysterious and magical Great-Great Grandmother who wields a powerful yet subtle magic. She never takes a direct hand in things in this story but like a Fairy Godmother constantly helps Irene to help herself. The story is simply delightful.

Like a fairy tale from old there are many morals that are illustrated and one is shown the ways of right and wrong. This might turn some people off but I like the fact that MacDonald doesn't beat one about the heads and shoulders with his display of virtues and vices. I feel he keeps just the right measure in his storytelling. After all fairy tales were meant to educate the young in the ways of right and wrong though many have forgotten this.

Many books written by Victorian authors during the Victorian Age can sometimes be a difficult read as they used the language somewhat differently than we do today. I felt that MacDonald wrote clearly and I didn't really have to struggle with anything though his turn of phrases were of course different from modern ones.

So for anyone who loves fairy tales and feels that they have read them and despair that there are no more to read I invite you to read this lost treasure.

The Kindle e-edition of the story from Random House LLC, Random House Books for Young Readers (January 16, 2010), is sadly abridged. The author's original story is fantastic! I'm not sure if an unabridged digital edition exists; finding one would add two stars to the reading experience of a wonderful work by G. MacDonald. Rossignol Books has an unabridged print edition...

4.0 su 5 stelle MacDonald's poetic writing is displayed again 19 novembre 2016
Di Magdalena M. Aders - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A reader can never go wrong with George MacDonald, as I discovered in childhood with my marvellous discovery of "At the Back of the North Wind." There are some similarities is "The Princess and the Goblin"....Princess Irene's great-great-etc. grandmother facilitates powers for the good, sometimes (not always) not seeming so pleasant when they occur...MacDonald brings an honest, strong theology across subtly in his works. I didn't quite love this work as much as "North Wind" as there was more violence to it....that war between humans and goblins, oh my!!!! (When you get done reading this, read "Peer Gynt" if you haven't done so already....the goblins were very reminiscent of the trolls; he even borrowed from the phrase "The Hall of the Mountain King" in one of his chapters.) That being said, the characters and emotions are real, and the imagery incredibly poetic. I do recommend this book--if you're giving it to a young person to read or reading it to them, just be aware that some of the content in the fighting scenes is a bit intense. Princess Irene is on an amazing quest to find herself, her family story and, in a sense, her spirituality...even though she never leaves the castle without her faithful nurse. Her friendship with Curdie is plainly going to be explored in further writings....I will make it a point to read "The Princess and Curdie" next. Reading George MacDonald will institute or strengthen a love of the beauty of the English language.

1.0 su 5 stelle This is an ABRIDGED version - buyer beware 1 ottobre 2011
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This review is only for the Hardcover, 1970 version. The Princess and the Goblin, and the Princess and Curdie; Two Stories

This is an ABRIDGED version - something I normally try hard to avoid. Both of these stories by George MacDonald are classic children's fairy tales - stories every child should read at least once. My own copies were given to me on my 8th birthday, and are appropriately dog-eared and worn. I bought this version for my own daughter, thinking it would be nice to have them bound together in hardcover.

To my dismay, not only is it abridged, but this outrageously obnoxious comment is written on the inside of the dust jacket by the editors: "...Olive Jones...has taken the long boring digressions and moral lectures out of the original text, while preserving the essential enchantment of the stories."

Blah! I think I'll take George MacDonald's actual work, thank you very much, which had been in print for 99 years already (sounds like a classic) when these editors decided the world needed their "morally stripped" edition.

I threw it in the trash, something this bibliophile has only had to do three other times in my life.

This review is for the version published by Rossignol books. While the illustrations are a touch grainy and the formatting is a bit strange, this version does contain the "Mr. Author" interruption in Chapter One that many versions omit. The font is a decent size and the paper is a thicker quality that is nice. I think it is worth the money to receive the original text, despite it being a paperback.
