    Formally, Shrovetide is the week before Lent, but in many parts of the world where Carnival now stretches from Epiphany to Lent (New Orleans, Buenos Aires, Rio etc.), Shrovetide covers that whole season. There’s nothing really wrong with merging Christmas and Easter. In the Medieval church the two festivals were seen as quintessentially linked. Whimsical, magical, and delightful children's stories, Zlateh the Goat is a collection of Jewish folktales that teach lessons. I am always captivated and drawn in by Singer's stories, and this book is no different, but these tales are not for just any children/5.

      Evil, Antic And Modern, 'The Merry Spinster' Puts A Dark Spin On Fairy Tales Mallory Ortberg's hyperliterate new story collection turns familiar fairy tales inside out to comment on gender.   Christmas and Easter plays, Passion and Morality plays, Shrovetide and Reformation plays experienced a tremendous proliferation during the fifteenth century and often included several hundred actors who performed for days, if not weeks.

    In the Duchy of Brunswick is a forest called Seib, and in this lies the village of Kneitlingen, where the good child Owlglass was born.. The life of this child does not confirm the old saying, “like father like son,” for his father, by name Elaus Owlglass, was a quiet respectable man, and his mother, Anna, was the very model of a woman, for she was meek and a woman of few words. From Mallory Ortberg comes a collection of darkly mischievous stories based on classic fairy tales. Adapted from the beloved "Children's Stories Made Horrific" series, "The Merry Spinster" takes up the trademark wit that endeared Ortberg to readers of both The Toast and the best-selling debut Texts From Jane feature has become among the most popular on the site, with each entry.
