Ogre

Ogro

The ogre or ogre definition is somewhat vague because it varies greatly from folklore from one country to another and even from one literary work to another in the same country. But he is almost always depicted as a giant or simply as a man larger than normal and brutal in appearance. And it usually feeds on human flesh. Its controversial origin, probably a change from the Latin Orcus, 'infernal deity', or the old German Ögr, 'ugly' or 'very clumsy', seems to make it clear that it is a character of European origin. In mythology, it is almost always portrayed as a monster inhabiting isolated and dingy forests. In children's literature, a famous ogre is the fairy tale The Little Thumb. These creatures have a reduced brain, which justifies their foolish attitudes, lack of discernment and their reduced reasoning ability. One notable exception in drawings is Shrek, the hero of the films that take his name, which is gentle, intelligent and sensitive. A definição ogro ou ogre é algo um tanto vago, pois varia muito do folclore de um país para o outro e mesmo de uma obra literária para outra no mesmo país. Mas quase sempre é retratado como um gigante ou simplesmente como um homem maior do que o normal e de aparência brutal. E geralmente se alimenta de carne humana. Sua origem controversa, provavelmente uma alteração do latim Orcus, 'divindade infernal', ou do alemão antigo Ögr, "feio" ou "muito desajeitado", parece deixar claro que é um personagem de origem europeia. Na mitologia, quase sempre é retratado como um monstro que habita florestas isoladas e lúgubres. Na literatura infantil, um ogro famoso é o do conto de fadas O Pequeno Polegar. Essas criaturas possuem um cérebro reduzido, o que justifica suas atitudes insensatas, falta de discernimento e sua capacidade de raciocínio reduzida. Uma exceção notável, em desenhos, é Shrek, o herói dos filmes que levam seu nome, que é gentil, inteligente e sensível.
