Der Froschkönig oder der eiserne Heinrich

Top 10 szándékos félrefordítás között szerepel a Grimm fivérek Békakirálya. Még hogy az ágyba fektetni egy rusnya békát? Sokkal inkább a falhoz kell őket vágni! 😉

Erre a királylány kénytelen-kelletlen felemelte a békát, és akárhogy is irtózott tőle, ágyába fektette.
– Nesze rusnya jószág! De most aztán nyugton maradj!
A béka befeküdt a szép fehér selyemágyba. S abban a
szempillantásban híre-nyoma se volt többé békának; a királykisasszony
egy takaros, szép szemű, mosolygó királyfit látott maga előtt.

“At this she was terribly angry, and took him up and
threw him with all her might against the wall. “Now, will you be quiet,
odious frog,” said she.
But when he fell down he was no frog but a king’s son with kind and beautiful eyes.”

“Da ward sie erst bitterböse, holte ihn herauf und warf ihn aus allen
Kräften wider die Wand
: “Nun wirst du Ruhe haben, du garstiger Frosch.”
Als er aber herabfiel, war er kein Frosch, sondern ein Königssohn mit schönen und freundlichen Augen.”

A királylány és a béka története/kapcsolata azért elég jól érthető, de a történet végén még ott van ez a Hűséges Henrik, aki annyira bánkódott gazdája miatt, hogy három vaspántot vonatott a szívére… Na ezt magyarázza valaki ki nekem!

And the analysis: According to Carl Jung’s analysis, the story presents an initiation process of a young female psyche. Fairy tale, in Jungian analysis, is a rich source of archetypes and it can be analyzed as a dream. The Id character in this story is the young princess. Being a virgin, she does not yet appreciate the attraction from male and views her rude and dirty male companions as animals, more specifically, frogs. The golden ball represents her Self, which is lost in the well in the woods. Here both the well and the woods represent her unconsciousness. During her process of searching for her Self, she met a frog, who was actually a man. The frog helped her and wanted to drink from her cup and eat from her plate, which represent his desire of kissing her. To sleep on her bed represents the intimacy between husband and wife. As the virgin princess violently threw the frog against the wall in disgust, she suddenly came to realize the masculinity inside her unconscious Self. Upon this realization, the frog returns to the real image of a man or in this case, a prince with kind eyes. The princess is now a matured woman ready for marriage.
