Study Notes

  • Jack, a poor young man, lived with his mother in a small farm at the foot of Foggy Mountains. Their only source of income was the sale of their cow, Bess.
  • Jack's mother woke him up early one morning, asking him to sell Bess at the market to fix their dilapidated house. Jack met an old man on the way, who offered to buy Bess for five black magic beans.
  • Jack's mother was furious upon learning that he had sold Bess for beans, leaving the family without a source of income.
  • The next morning, a giant beanstalk grew from the spot where the beans had been thrown. Jack decided to climb the beanstalk in search of riches promised by the old man.
  • Jack reached the castle of the giants and was welcomed by the kind giantess. He asked for food and was given vegetable stew. Jack hid during the arrival of the giant husband to avoid being discovered.
  • Jack stole five gold coins from the giants and climbed down the beanstalk, but he soon realized that without a cow, his family would starve. As a result, he decided to stay and look for more treasures.
  • Jack discovered a golden hen that laid golden eggs, a magic harp, and more riches. But when he was caught by the giants, he managed to escape by chopping down the beanstalk, leaving the giants stranded on the ground.
  • After living a comfortable life with the golden hen's riches, Jack was haunted by the giant's cries and tears. He grew old and decided to find the giant to grow a new beanstalk and make amends.
  • The outcome of Jack's quest remains unknown. Some say that during a thunderstorm, you can hear the rumbling sound of two giants dancing in the clouds.
