Contine cele mai frumoase povesti ale lui Ion Creanga. Colectia completa a povestirilor lui Creanga intr-o singura carte, avand 14...0 de pagini. Dintre povestirile incluse in volumul de fata amintim: Povestea lui Harap-Alb, Povestea porcului, Fata babei și fata moșneagului, Capra cu trei iezi, Punguța cu doi bani, Ursul păcălit de vulpe, Ivan Turbincă, Dănilă Prepeleac, Povestea lui Stan Pățitul, Soacra cu trei nurori, Prostia omenească, Povestea unui om leneșCreanga e altceva, nici narator taran, nici folclorist, culegator, prelucrator, basmele lui nu sunt rescrise, impodobite, alterate in structura lor (ca ale lui Slavici). Fara a iesi din schemele basmului popular, fara a inventa nimic esential, Creanga retraieste cu ingenuitate intamplarile povestite. Geniul humulestean este aceasta capacitate extraordinara de a-si lua in serios eroii (fabulosi sau nu, oameni sau animale), de a le retrai aventurile, de a pune cu voluptate in fiecare propriile lui aspiratii nerostite, slabiciuni, tulburari si uimiri, adica de a crea viata. El este creatorul unei comedii umane tot asa de profunda si de universala in tipicitatea ei precum aceea a lui Sadoveanu. Nicolae Manolescu read more
