Princess Ben Being a Wholly Truthful Account of Her

My gown suited me as well as I could ever hope though I could not but envy the young ladies who would attract the honest compliments of the night My bodice did not plunge as dramatically as some and no man no man I would ever want to meet surely could fit his hands round my waist What I lacked in beauty I would simply have to earn with charm Benevolence is not your typical princess and Princess Ben is certainly not your typical fairy tale With her parents lost to assassins Princess Ben ends up under the thumb of the conniving Queen Sophia Starved and miserable locked in the castle's highest tower Ben stumbles upon a mysterious enchanted room So begins her secret education in the magical arts mastering an obstinate flying broomstick furtively emptying the castle's pantries setting her hair on fire But Ben's private adventures are soon overwhelmed by a mortal threat to her kingdom Can Ben save the country and herself from tyranny?

    Started to write this here and realized it was developed enough to be worth posting on my blog So here is my postI’ve read loved studied and taught fairy tales all my life Every three years I co teach a graduate school fairy tale course and since 1990 I’ve been doing a Cinderella unit with my fourth graders So I’m always interested in new versions of these old tales as well as original ones At the same time because many of these come up short for me I am a wary reader of them especially those featuring feisty oppositional heroines who are too often pallid cousins of Gail Carson Levine’s Ella and Patricia Wrede’s Cine So I was both curious and dubious as I started reading Catherine Murdock’s Princess Ben And here I am having finished it last night having enjoyed it sufficiently to want to write about it at length I don’t write that many book reviews here and in fact started writing this casually over at goodreads and then realized that it might actually be decent enough to post here for to seeSo getting to the book itself what was it that I liked so much? First of all I was captivated immediately by the mannered writing style and voice Murdock has really pulled off that old fashioned first person epistolary style and voice it is very nicely done indeed At first I was very conscious of this as I read in a good way — I was simply enjoying her sentences and vocabulary but once I got into the plot I stopped paying attention I’m guessing she sustained it all the way through For the last few years I’ve been listening to a lot of Dickens Collins and now Eliot so I’m very conscious of this old fashioned style and it grates on me when writers try it unsuccessfully So bravo to Murdock for pulling it offThe characters are all very complex — no one is totally bad or totally good a very nice way of deepening and complicating the usual goodbad cast of characters in traditional fairy tales I began thinking they would be stock versions or variations or opposites of the traditional types and enjoyed the way every single one of them turned out to be nuanced than I originally thought they were My main quibble would be with Ben’s parents They are left as single dimensional ghosts of her memory and perhaps that is as it should be given her circumstances but I did feel that I wanted to know about them especially her mother For a while I did wonder about Ben’s gluttony thinking Murdock was going for a large princesses are lovable too But she went a different and original direction that I found worthwhile and I’m not usual one for psychological meanings but this was interesting enough for me to feel okay with itThe plot is captivating engaging and kept me reading and guessing If I were on an award committee this year I would want to consider harder the climax of the story and whether it is a bit out of nowhere Won’t say for fear of spoilage But since I’m not I’ll just leave it as is It worked just fine for meSo all in all a very elegantly written and satisfying literary fairy taleEntry Filed under
