Description de l’éditeur
It is not always well to place Unbounded Faith in Fairy Lore, Believing that in every case They all lived Happy evermore.
Stranger than Fiction though we deem The Truth, it does not follow, too, That Fairy Tales, because they seem Still Stranger, must be still more True.
Far be it from me to assail
The Truthfulness of Fairy Writ, But let us take a Well-Known Tale And see what really came of it.
When Cinderella wed the Prince She thought him all her Fancy Painted, And this was not surprising since They were not very Well Acquainted.
While he, not dreaming where she got Glass slippers, counted on a Dot.
The Prince was Brave, Industrious, Wise: Brave in bright Silks and Satins gay, Wise in the Lore of Ladies’ Eyes, And most Industrious—at Play; A Leader, too—in Fashion’s Set; And Deep—that is to say, in Debt.
