Dracula Bookmarks

Targoviste - between myth and reality

Synopsis

Centuries ago, Vlad Tepes, a Romanian prince, became well known in Europe because of his bloody habit, impaling. For this reason, people called him Vlad the Impaler. One of the favourite cities to express this bloody wish, was Targoviste. That’s why, Vlad the Impaler has been associated with Dracula, and Targoviste as one of Dracula’s house.
How does it look Targoviste nowadays?

A very quiet town, the only army that makes noise is for the celebration of the town.

Αιώνες πριν, γράφουν οι Ρουμάνοι συνεργάτες μας, ένας αιμοσταγής ηγεμόνας της Βλαχίας, ο Βλαντ Τέπες, ήταν διαβόητος στην Ευρώπη για τη συνήθειά του να ανασκολοπίζει τους εχθρούς του. Ένα από τα κάστρα του, το κάστρο του Δράκουλα βρίσκεται στην πόλη μας, Ταργκοβίστε, σήμερα μια ήσυχη επαρχιακή πόλη. Ο μόνος στρατός που παρελαύνει είναι οι κάτοικοι κατά τις τοπικές γιορτές.

"Demeter" is the name of the ship with which Dracula travelled from Romania to England, in a most thrilling story within a story!

Πρόκειται για τη θεά των Ελευσινίων μυστηρίων που δίδαξε την καλλιέργεια του σίτου και έδωσε ελπίδα για τη μεταθανάτια ζωή στους θνητούς!

11th of December. Universal Day for Children's Rights

"Climb up! little boy," said theTree, and it bent its branches down as low as it could; but the boy was too tiny. And the Giant's heart melted as he looked out. "How selfish I have been!" he said; "now I know why the Spring would not come here. I will put that poor little boy on the top of the tree, and then I will knock down the wall, and my garden shall be the children's playground for ever and ever." He was really very sorry for what he had done." The Selfish Giant, Oscar Wilde

Make the world a happy playground for all the children in the world.

Ο Εγωιστής Γίγαντας του Όσκαρ Ουάιλντ γκρεμίζει το τείχος του κήπου και της καρδιάς του με αφορμή ένα Παιδί (το μικρό Χριστό) κι εκείνος αποφασίζει να αφήσει τα παιδιά να παίζουν πάντα στον κήπο του για να διατηρηθεί η άνοιξη.

Ας κάνουμε αυτόν το κόσμο τον Κήπο των Παιδιών.


On the right you see a page from Hilda Boswell's Treasury of Children's Stories, (1971), which, as a child introduced me to Oscar Wilde.
