William Goldman:
Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - used book

1991, ISBN: 0899668097

[SR: 4389917], Library Binding, [EAN: 9780899668093], Buccaneer Books, Buccaneer Books, Book, [PU: Buccaneer Books], 1991-06-01, Buccaneer Books, First published well, in 1973 actually, this book spawned the Rob Reiner-directed cult film of the same name. It's a tongue-in-cheek fairytale of love, life, action, death and life again. Featuring the obligatory handsome Prince and supremely beautiful princess, it also boasts a Spanish sword wizard, the Zoo of Death, a chocolate-coated resurrection pill and lots of villains, who span the spectrum from evil, through even more evil to (gasp) most evil. And then there's Fezzik, the gentle giant addicted to rhyming. William Goldman--who's won two Oscars for his screenwriting (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President's Men), and has endeared himself to dentists and their patients planetwide through his novel Marathon Man--has always claimed he merely abridged this text, extracting the "good parts" from an inventive yet wordy classic by Florinese literary superstar, S Morgenstern. It has, however, been whispered in certain circles that Morgenstern himself is a figment of Goldman's ultra-fertile imagination. Read Goldman's original and special Anniversary introductions and make up your own mind. Oh--and don't forget his explanation as to why he's only "abridged" the first chapter of the sequel Buttercup's Baby--which appears here for the first time--and why it took him so long to get round to it. Completely delightful, suitable for cynics and romantics alike. Suspension of disbelief optional. -- Lisa Gee, 590934, Literary Fiction, 62, Fiction, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 275389, Poetry, Drama & Criticism, 274876, Drama, 275013, Essays, Journals & Letters, 275068, History & Criticism, 863744, Literary Reference, 275117, Poetry, 274731, Shakespeare, William, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure - used book

ISBN: 0899668097

Library Binding, [EAN: 9780899668093], Buccaneer Books, Buccaneer Books, Book, [PU: Buccaneer Books], Buccaneer Books, The Princess Bride is a true fantasy classic. William Goldman describes it as a "good parts version" of "S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure." Morgenstern's original was filled with details of Florinese history, court etiquette, and Mrs. Morgenstern's mostly complimentary views of the text. Much admired by academics, the "Classic Tale" nonetheless obscured what Mr. Goldman feels is a story that has everything: "Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Poison. True love. Hate. Revenge. Giants. Hunters. Bad men. Good men. Beautifulest ladies. Snakes. Spiders. Beasts of all natures and descriptions. Pain. Death. Brave men. Coward men. Strongest men. Chases. Escapes. Lies. Truths. Passion. Miracles." Goldman frames the fairy tale with an "autobiographical" story: his father, who came from Florin, abridged the book as he read it to his son. Now, Goldman is publishing an abridged version, interspersed with comments on the parts he cut out. Is The Princess Bride a critique of classics like Ivanhoe and The Three Musketeers, that smother a ripping yarn under elaborate prose? A wry look at the differences between fairy tales and real life? Simply a funny, frenetic adventure? No matter how you read it, you'll put it on your "keeper" shelf. --Nona Vero, 2056047011, Literary, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books
