    • Stories that stood on tiptoe

      Interview with the translator of the book, Fabian Negrin "Magic SMS -skazki" poet Tatiana Stamova

      3af7ad44-591f-11e4-88d8-10bf487ee2aa

      Tatiana, let's start c SMS, and then move on to the tales. For example, you would normally use SMS messages? Do you have your phone SMS matches that are stored for years, because it was too well written?

      Oddly enough, SMS-ki - not my genre. Use them only when necessary, mainly - communicating with Fyodor and Vanya, my children. "Hello," "Where are you?", "OK" - that's all.

      Remember the well-known expression of Zhukovsky, the translator of prose - a slave, but in verse - a rival? As applicable to your transfer "Magic SMS-tales?". After you have entered a rhyme in them contrary to the original?

      With Zhukovsky can agree. That is a good translator is free and prose. But poetry is really written from scratch. In the case of SMS-tales were true. Someone tried to have them translated, "as it was." It turned out a bit dry - as it is not a child. I was asked to come up with something. And since I am by nature more than a poet, then they took me to rhyme, and - as if stood on tiptoe.

      In your opinion, why Negrin illustrated their SMS-tale using only silhouettes, as in a theater of shadows?

      Could be the answer is simple - because the artist wanted. But I think that's another reason. SMS-tale - this is such a fabulous grain with unusual yet fabulous germ. It does not have any details, not even the names of the characters. And silhouette illustration here suggest themselves: neither individuals nor the costume details ... But what expressive! Most are assigned.

      In the afterword to the book, Fabian Negrin you write about fairy tales that come up on the go kids and quoting his daughter Masha, "I went to a chicken shop. And in the shop all the sellers were crocodiles and dogs. Hen took one dog - and ate! ". Not everyone understands the difference between these children's author and impromptu tales Negrin. Explain, please, what is the latest poetics

      Small child creates almost unconsciously. And materials for creative there are any life experience. For example, a girl with her mother went to the store, and there the seller got rough. And then, or, conversely, to read that they "Chicken Ryaba." Suddenly, the girl came up with its own tale. In general, something all the time melted - like a dream.

      Fabian Negrin takes what most fabulous grain - all familiar story - and grow something new. And he's funny gardener.

      One could call this fabulous parody genre, but I would not. In these micro-tales there are shifters, and horror stories, and play on the word ("rhino"), and even - as in the story of the Queen and the mirror or two chess kings - something of a philosophical parable. Therefore, they can be interesting for both children and adults.

      Many will read the book Gianni Rodari "Tales on the phone." There are that have to grandfather every time to tell her granddaughter on the night a new fairy tale. Do it, he can only call, and even from different cities - so it has an interesting life. Money on calls with his grandfather a little and fairy tales should be short. There is in this book tale about a grandfather who did not know how to tell stories and all mixed up: Little Red Riding Hood he became a yellow, then black, instead of cakes appeared potato peelings, instead of a wolf - a giraffe ... Here Fabian Negrin also decided to play in such a cunning grandfather.

      A "fairy tale on mobile" (as they are called in the original) further shortened. It is hoped that in the future they will not disappear completely. However, Fabian believes that fairy tales remain: "Try to put a fairy tale in the SMS-messages - it means playing, bring them to us and at the same time help them on the way to the future."

      And you were writing fairy tales as a child? Preserved anything to the story?

      His fairy tales that I do not remember. I remember how, in the four tried to compose his first poem, "Burning the moon, the moon is shining / And the stars produces ..." - I said aloud. Then I decided to help the pope: "We were sitting with his mother at the window / And the music plays." I was terribly disappointed. At that moment, when my imagination had already begun to unfold unprecedented fairy worlds, in a moment I was lowered to the ground! (Smiles)

      Stamova Tatiana (Tatiana Vasilieva) - poet and translator of poetry, was born and raised in Moscow, graduated from Moscow State Linguistic University (Moscow State Pedagogical Institute. Toreza). In her translations published poems of Emily Dickinson, Giacomo Leopardi, John Milton, Geoffrey Chaucer, William Wordsworth, and others. And Tatiana herself writes poetry, short stories and fairy tales for children.

      If you also have questions about the "Magic SMS-tales" - write them in the comments to this interview, and we certainly will forward them to Tatiana Jurevne and publish her ​​answers.
