"Stepan-Restrepo" – German book for children, which is more like a horrorPictolic
One of the first in the history of children's picture-books was the German work of Frankfurt am main (in Russian translation — "Stepan-Restrepo"), written by the psychiatrist Heinrich Hoffmann in 1845. This collection of ten didactic poems. And it is notable that some of the sermons endowed in astonishing bloodlust form. Illustrations are appropriate. Talk about the six most lethal rhymes.
The first poem is the most gentle. Sluts from Peter dirty hands, the nails grown long and unkempt hair. But for him it is not yet been rewarded.
"A very sad story with matches"
"The story of the wild hunter"
"The story of baby sucking thumb"
Then follows a dramatic poem about the plight of a boy named Conrad. He used to suck his thumb, despite the comments mom. And when he again disobeyed, came the evil Queen had done to the boy two thumbs up.
"The story of the soup and Caspari"
"The story about the walk in bad weather"
And finally the tenth poem, mystic. Robert went for a walk in bad weather and took an umbrella. A strong wind picked up and carried the boy far, far away. More it nobody saw. I wonder why teach this poem?
