Duffy and the Devil BSW1434


Duffy and the Devil was a popular play in Cornwall in the nineteenth century, performed at the Christmas season by groups of young people who went from house to house. The Zemachs have interpreted the folk tale which the play dramatized, recognizable as a version of the widespread Rumpelstiltskin story. Its main themes are familiar, but the character and details of this picture book are entirely Cornish, as robust and distinctive as the higgledy-piggledy, cliff-hanging villages that dot England's southwestern coast from Penzance to Land's End.“

《达菲和恶魔》是1 9 世纪英格兰康沃尔郡的一出流行戏剧,源自广为流传的《侏儒怪》。泽蒙克夫妇重新诠释了这个古老、风趣、耐人寻味的故事, 绘本中的角色和细节都保留了康沃尔戏剧的风格。玛戈· 泽蒙克绘制的钢笔水彩画简洁而凝练,人物生动, 富于喜剧感; 细节丰富而又恰到好处, 还有着很好的装饰性。画面的表现力远超过她之前的作品。
