    The Princess and the Pea is a famous story from 1835, by Hans Christian Andersen, which has been adapted and retold numerous times The original is quite short, and clearly satirical and tongue in cheek Really it is a one idea story, in which an obviously ridiculous situation is contrived, to test whether a princess is truly a princess Charles Boner was the first to translate The Princess and the Pea into English, as The Princess on the Peas in A Danish Story Book in 1846 In the story, a prince is having difficulty finding a suitable wife He suspects that all the candidates are imposters They cannot truly be princesses, he thinks, because they are not perfect, He couldn t quite tell there was always something that didn t feel right So he came home very put out, for he did long for a real princess One stormy night a young woman, soaked to the skin with rain, asked for shelter in the prince s castle She claimed to be a real princess, but the prince was dubious His mother cunningly tested whether she was telling the truth by placing a single pea in the bed they offered the young woman for the night, covering it with twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds The young woman doesn t get a wink of sleep, and complains the next morning that something hard in the bed had kept her awake The prince, of course, is overjoyed at such clear proof of her pedigree, for, They could see that she was a real princess, as she had felt the pea through twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds So the two are married, and live happily ever after.The pea, the author tells us, is placed in a special Royal museum, where it can still be seen to this very day, unless someone has removed it That s a real story he concludes.Hans Christian Andersen wrote a preface to the story, claiming to have heard it in his childhood, but it is not a traditional Danish fairy tale It is thought that he may instead have heard a Swedish version, Princess Who Lay on Seven Peas Princessa som l p sju rter , about an orphan girl is told by either a cat or a dog that something a bean, a pea, or a straw had been placed under her mattress, to test out her identity In later adaptations, the story is spun out in various ways, such as the bedding being piled higher and higher to make the princess comfortable before she finally retires for the night.Some translations miss the final part about putting the pea in a museum out, and stress the high sensitivity of the princess instead But this rather misses the humour of the story It is a welcome relief to read a jokey story by this author Even if Hans Christian Andersen was not responsible for originating the tale, he certainly made it popular, and the image of a highbred princess, so sensitive that she feels even a pea under her mattress, has been retained in fairy folklore to this day.

    Andersen ha escrito un final feliz No s si estar contenta o rematadamente decepcionada.

    I don t really understand how feeling something is a mattress is reason you are a princess

    First impressions are not always correct and that the smallest of things can make a difference.A young girl who shows up at the king s house at night claiming to be a princess Due to the girl s poor and dishevelled appearance, the royal family has a hard time believing her story The queen decides to test the girl and discover if she is telling the truth by placing a small pea under her bed, which is made up of 20 mattresses and 20 feather beds The next morning, the girl complains of bruises and says she was unable to sleep because of something hard pressing down on her back The queen then reveals the truth about the pea, and everyone rejoices as they realize that she was telling the truth all along because only a princess could have such delicate and sensitive skin The prince, who was looking for a true princess, joyfully marries her, and they live happily ever after.

    The Princess and the Pea, illustrated by Doroth e Duntze.One of Hans Christian Andersen s briefest tales, The Princess and the Pea was originally published in 1835, in his first collection of fairy tales, Eventyr, fortalte for B rn F rste Samling F rste Hefte Tales, Told for Children First Collection First Booklet The story of a prince who wants to marry a real princess, and a princess so sensitive that twenty mattresses cannot soften the bruising impact of a small pea, it was described by Andersen as a traditional tale heard in his own youth.This engaging edition features the beautifully stylized artwork of Doroth e Duntze whose other fairy tale projects include Andersen s The Emperor s New Clothes , as well as Rapunzel and The Twelve Dancing Princesses from the Brother Grimm and her artwork gives the modest narrative real substance From the decorative endpapers embellished with little peas to the gorgeously patterned clothing worn by the characters, Duntze creates an enchanting visual landscape This edition is well worth the time of fairy tale fans, particularly those who appreciate beautiful illustrations

    I m actually unsure how to rate this story It s very short indeed and is not like other fairy tales, where you can sense a certain doom or moral in the story.I also read this two times in German but remember neither liking or disliking it It s sort of meh to me.
