This fairy tale from a nineteenth-century collection by Spanish folklorist and short-story writer Antonio de Trueba illustrates Trueba’s systematic attempt to emulate the Brothers Grimm by giving written form to the oral tradition. Marked by humor, Trueba’s tale of good and evil gives a political edge to its morality and happy end.
