#9: Folk-Tales of Napoleon

Maria Lectrix

Here’s a weird one for you! Folk Tales of Napoleon includes two lengthy folk tale versions of the life of Napoleon: “Napoleonder”, collected by Alexander Amphiteatrov in Russia, and the other, “The Napoleon of the People”, being a chapter from The Country Doctor by Balzac which apparently reflects real French folk beliefs of the time.

So was Napoleon just a sad example of what happens when Satan starts playing with advanced silicon technologies? Or was Napoleon destined from the womb to save religion and glorify France? They report; you decide!

Read Folk-Tales of Napoleon at Gutenberg.

Introduction (listen to last)
