...BURAK UYAN VS. APERLAI...




The Red Shoes of Andersen’s original tale are complex and conflicting symbols. Apparently a moral warning against selfishness, pride and vanity, they also engage with older meanings about class aspiration, prestige and insecurity...
...While his red shoes can be read as negative in their linking of the female with danger, magic and conceit, Andersen created a mythology for red shoes that had much greater potential for reworking. With the development of new meanings for ballet, for women’s movement and for women’s autonomous sexual behavior, the red shoe became part of a cultural contest...
...How ironic that in the bicentenary year of Andersen’s birth, the red shoe, perhaps more than any other shoe in this volume, has the power to incite passionate controversy, attachment and desire.

Boots Who Made The Princess Say "That's A Story" ... A princess was a dreadful storyteller. The king said that anyone who got her to say "That's a lie" would marry her and get half the kingdom. After many had tried, three brothers did as well, and when it was the youngest son's turn, he traded stories with her: the princess claimed a farmyard too large for a man at one end to hear the horn blown at the end; the son that a just bred cow that crossed their farmyard would give birth at the other side, and on with more tall tales until the son claimed he had seen her father and his mother cobbling, and his mother boxed her father's ears. "That's a story!" said the Princess; "my father never did any such thing in all his born days!"

The Purple Jar...The story is about a young girl, Rosamund, who needs new pair of shoes but is attracted to a purple jar which she sees displayed in a shop window. When her mother gives her the choice of spending her money on shoes or the jar, she chooses the purple jar. “You might be disappointed,” her mother cautions, adding that Rosamund will not be able to buy new shoes until the next month. When the girl gets home, she discovers that the jar was not purple but filled with dark liquid. “I didn’t want this black stuff!” she cries. Adding to her disappointment, her father refuses to take her out in public because she looks slovenly without good shoes. In the 21st century, scholars have read this story as a parable of consumer capitalism.
