Centenary of the birth of Ela Peroci, Slovene youth writer

 

Ela Peroci was born on 11 February 1922 in Rogaška Slatina, and died on 18 November 2001 in Ljubljana. She attended primary school in Šmarje pri Jelšah, Rogatec, Šentvid and Grobelno. This was followed by grammar school in Celje and Kočevje. Her studies at the State Teacher Training College in Ljubljana were cut short during the Second World War, and she finally graduated in 1954 from the Education Department of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Ljubljana. After the war she taught at primary schools, and she worked as a journalist in the editorial offices of the magazines Ciciban and Pionir. She was the editor of Mladi svet [Otrok in družina / Child and Family, 1955-1962], then worked at Radio Slovenia and edited the youth broadcast Radijska šola (Radio School, 1962–1978).

 

Ela Peroci’s work is regarded as a modern Slovene youth classic. She wrote poetry (Ajatutaja), radio plays, scripts and prose. Her best-known works are short modern fairy-tales, which have become part of the Slovene literary culture. Her fairy-tales are now part of popular culture, too (e.g. Hišica iz kock/House of Dice, Moj dežnik je lahko balon/My Umbrella Can be a Balloon, Nina v čudežni deželi/Nina in Wonderland, Povestice tik-tak/Tik-tak Tales and more). Her most popular work is the modern fairy-tale Muca Copatarica/The Cat Who Hid the Slippers, with illustrations by Ančka Gošnik Godec (1957), which is also now part of popular culture. Generations and generations of children have grown up with the beloved literary figure of the Cat Who Hid the Slippers. Her short modern fairy-tales are also complex, such as Black Peter Caught the Asian Flu, Mirror and Shadow. Ela Peroci’s works have been translated into 23 languages (including Serbian, Croatian, German, French, Slovak, Hungarian, Italian, Macedonian and English).

 

In 1955 and 1956 she was awarded the Levstik Prize, and in 1971 the Prešeren Fund Prize. In 1970 she wrote the message to all children of the world for the International Children’s Book Day, which was a great honour and recognition of Slovene children’s literature.
