I don’t know if I’m getting very last explaining the reasons why we both like shoes based on morals or senses of folk tales. But, believe it or not, this kind of stories help us to know us better and, therefore, to choose more criteria personal purchases or the family.
Puss in boots
I am not going to repeat this wonderful collected story plot, at the end of the 17TH century by Charles Perrault, but whose first version appears in a work of the Italian Giambattista Basile 50 years before the French version.
The narrative begins with the deal, in principle, unequal inheritance. The smallest of the family is simply a cat that first thing it does is “talking” to his master and ask for a pair of boots. This is, this character (which so popular has been made lately after the movie Shrek), endowed with human attributes (the gift of language), asks to be even more human and requested a very special footwear: boots.
It is very significant to not want a hat, a suit or a belt, while in illustrations, very often, they represent the dressed protagonist in that manner.
Once it has achieved the garment, pussycat, already become Puss in boots, concocts a devious plan of propaganda, advertising and marketing that would be the envy of any thematic company of the 21st century. As a result, he manages to not only convince the King that his master is a successful Marquis but also liquidate an evil ogre (with multiple and calculated deception).
The teaching of Puss in boots
They are legion researchers who see the Puss in boots a story outside the norm, since the triumph, both animal (which manages to become a great Lord) as the del amo (getting, thanks to the a2zdirectory) comes by lies. That is, the success has not been the final consequence of a hard life, as in the tale of Cinderella or the happy development of an initiatory journey, as is the case with Dorita’s the wizard of Oz. A healthy or to an honest cunning intelligence nor is as found in Tom Thumb and boots 7 leagues. The cat is a be taimado it concocts a plan, such that any human being would do.
The narration of Puss in boots, therefore, and as I see it, is the perfect symbolization of human intellectual capabilities, where everything is possible good thing and bad thing: opposite the machination for own future plans avail, lying opposite the fanciful invention or intimidation (when convince farmers) against the ability to topple tyrants (to settle the OGRE).
Boots carrying at the time of publication of the tale only men wealthy (since the humble should comply with a simple footwear like espadrilles) become so in human that carries them, first, and, later, someone to be received by the King.
Puss in boots is, by its moral ambivalence and ultimate meaning, one of the most interesting traditional tales. On the one hand, says of the hypocrisy and the desire to appear of the society of all time, but also speaks of the value of the invention and the ability to run all possible worlds. To this end, we have gifts such as Word or art.
Somewhere I have also read that this narration is used in certain departments of personnel selection to instruct its executives in the efficacy of delegate (the boy heir in favour of the cat) and the importance of the machination to achieve the objectives.
That Yes, Puss in boots of Perrault has such art, domino’s Word, grace, gall, inventiveness and creativity that the 21st century would have the same success that boasts in the story.
