Based on the story of the ballet famed for its Igor Stravinsky music, San Souci's impassioned retelling and Waldherr's.
At last they came to a very high fortress. There the grey wolf told Ivan: "Listen to me, and remember what I say. Climb over the wall and do not be afraid; all the guards are asleep. In the attic you will see a small window; in the window hangs a golden cage, and in that cage is the Firebird.
Take the bird and hide it under your coat; but be sure not to touch the cage.
And, just as the wolf had said, in the attic window a golden cage was hanging, and the Firebird was in the cage. He took out the bird and put it under his coat. But as he looked at the golden cage he could not help coveting it.
It was made of precious gold; how could he leave it behind? He completely forgot what the wolf had told him. But as soon as he touched the cage the alarm was sounded all through the fortress; drums rolled and trumpets blared, the guards woke up, captured Prince Ivan and took him to Tsar Afron.
The tsar was furious at this attempt to steal the Firebird and the cage, and asked the prince: "Who are you, and where are you from? The son of a tsar coming here to steal! But now I shall see to it that all the world knows of your behavior! And in order to earn my forgiveness you will have to enter my service. A certain Tsar Kusman has a horse with a golden mane. Bring that horse to me, and I will give you the Firebird and the cage.
But the wolf said to him: "I told you not to touch the cage. Why did you disobey me? We will not turn back now.
About this book
And at last they came to the fortress where the horse with the golden mane was stabled. Then the wolf told Ivan: "Climb over the wall; do not be afraid, the guards are asleep. Go to the stable and bring out the horse.
But be sure not to touch the bridle you will see hanging there. He went straight to the stable and found the horse with the golden mane.
But his eyes fell on a bridle hanging up; it was of gold and studded with precious stones: the only bridle fit for a horse with a golden mane.
And he put out his hand to take it. But at once the alarm was sounded all through the fortress; drums rolled and trumpets blared, the guards woke up, took the prince a prisoner and led him before Tsar Kusman. Even a peasant would not try to do that.
But I will let you off, Prince Ivan, if you agree to enter my service.
A certain tsar named Dalmat has a daughter, the beautiful Helen. Carry her off and bring her to me, and then I will give you the golden-maned horse and the golden bridle. Again he went to see the grey wolf. But the wolf said: "I told you not to touch the bridle.
You did not obey my orders. All right, get on my back.
But this time the grey wolf said to the prince: "I am not going to ser am going myself. You set of back to Tsar Afron; I will soon catch up. In the garden the beautiful Helen was walking with her attendants.
The russian folk art
The wolf sat behind a bush and watched them, and the moment the princess fell a little way behind her attendants the wolf seized her, flung her over his back, and scampered away.
Ivan had gone some distance when the grey wolf caught up with him, bringing the beautiful Helen sitting on its back.
The prince was delighted, but the wolf said: "Quick, get on my back, in case we are followed. At last they arrived at Tsar Kusman's fortress. But the prince seemed very sad, so the wolf asked: "Why are you silent, Prince Ivan? Are you sad?
How can I part with this beautiful princess? How can I exchange her for a horse? Then the grey wolf uttered a magic spell and at once became her living image. Prince Ivan took her to Tsar Kusman.
The tsar was delighted and said: "Thank you, Prince Ivan, for getting me such a beautiful woman for my wife. Take the golden-maned horse and the bridle. He seated her behind him on the horse, and they rode away. They sometimes make me gasp in surprise over her clever plot twists. They educate me on less known periods of history.
They allow the romantic in me to squee over the characters and their struggles, and cheer these fictional people on. They even allow the cynic in me to swallow improbable concepts like ghosts, time travel, and time slip.
They comfort me with their clean, cozy charm. Sad to say, The Firebird did none of these things this time around, and for that this reader and fan is sad indeed. I will accept some of the blame for the disappointment, because I've come to expect alot from Kearsley's stories. While it is a continuation of The Winter Sea, and loose ends from that novel are tied up in this one, there's not a good deal of historic "meat" to gnaw on regarding the Jacobite rebellion of the early 18th century as it pertains to Russia's slight involvement.
With that rich historic context and backdrop, I was rightly expecting a great story with engaging characters, a good "twist", a good 2-hanky cry and an emotive resolution to the journey of some of the characters begun in The Winter Sea. Instead, I found the past-life plotline of The Firebird just a string of incidences involving view spoiler [our heroine Anna fleeing from one place to another and conveniently meeting and talking to some of the real life historic figures of the period.
And she gets pretty fabric. And she sews it into a dress.Take the golden-maned horse and the bridle. Then the wolf told Ivan: "Climb over the wall; do not be afraid, the guards are asleep. All right, get on my back. Supplement for Firebird 3. They allow the romantic in me to squee over the characters and their struggles, and cheer these fictional people on.
