Beauty and the Beast (Classic Reprint) | Charles Lamb
2 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Excerpt from Beauty and the Beast The wise philosopher who superintended the literature sold at his wife's shop, was marked by a trusting simplicity, and a habit of asking strangers to take up his bills. If Charles Lamb really wrote the metrical Beauty and the Beast for this philosopher, one can only hope that Lamb's trusting simplicity did not go without its reward. But the statement of Mr. Hazlitt appears to be more dogmatic than the circum stances warrant. It is not at all certain that Lamb wrote Beauty and t/ze Beast. At best, the subject seems part of the engaging science of Comparative Hypothetics. Lamb was a writer for children for them the author of dream-children pro duced his Adventures of Ulysses (with quite as much Chapman as Homer in them) and his Tales from S/zakspeare and his Prz'uce Dorus.

This is a fun way to read Beauty and the Beast (F) as a reprint of Charles Lamb's manuscript from 1886. It's awesome for DR! Since most students are familiar with the fairy tale, it's a great chance to use ESOL strategy 45 to compare/contrast the original with Disney's film using a Venn Diagram, working as pairs. This also promotes UDL Engagement standard 8.3 because students work together to reenact and complete the Venn diagram.

dayuso1 To support teaching strategies explained above, a good resource for this book would be Disney's Beauty and the Beast animated film. This provides a visual component to the original manuscript and also allows for comparing and contrasting storylines. 11mo
