The Tales Of Mother Goose Pdf
The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of French fairy tales and later of English nursery rhymes. As a character, she appeared in a song, the first stanza of which often functions now as a nursery rhyme. This, however, was dependent on a Christmas pantomime, a successor to which is still performed in the United Kingdom. The term’s appearance in English dates back to the early 18th century, when Charles Perrault’s fairy tale collection, Contes de ma Mère l’Oye, was first translated into English as Tales of My Mother Goose. Later a compilation of English nursery rhymes, titled Mother Goose’s Melody, or, Sonnets for the Cradle, helped perpetuate the name both in Britain and the United States.
The Tales Of Mother Goose Summary
Mother Goose’s name was identified with English collections of stories and nursery rhymes popularised in the 17th century. English readers would already have been familiar with Mother Hubbard, a stock figure when Edmund Spenser published the satire Mother Hubbard’s Tale in 1590, as well as with similar fairy tales told by “Mother Bunch” (the pseudonym of Madame d’Aulnoy) in the 1690s. An early mention appears in an aside in a verified French chronicle of weekly events, Jean Loret’s La Muse Historique, collected in 1650. His remark, comme un Conte de la Mère Oye (“like a Mother Goose story”) shows that the term was readily understood. Additional 17th-century Mother Goose/Mere l’Oye references appear in French literature in the 1620s and 1630s.
