COLLODI, CARLO

about author

Showing pride and affinity for his mother, the author choose his pseudonym based on the Tuscan village of his mother’s birthplace, “Collodi.” As it provides an interesting context in which to read Pinocchio, it is important to note that Collodi never had kids and spent his childhood on the streets rather than in a classroom. And although he began his writing career as a journalist, dramatist, and short story writer for adults, Collodi switched to children’s literature in 1875 after Italy's unification (Perella, 2005, 9), claiming that “adults are too hard to please” (Puffin Books). Obvious that this crossover was a smart decision, Collodi penned didactic school texts – like Johnny's Arithmetic PrimerJohnny's Grammar Book, andJohnny's Journey Through Italy (Merriman, 2006) – in addition to his international bestseller, The Adventures of Pinocchio,whose fame he did not live to see - dying two years before its translation to the English language - and never foresaw - calling it a "bit of foolishness" when he first sumitted it for publication (Puffin Books).
