Synopsis

The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault

About the Author

Charles Perrault

Charles Perrault was a French poet and writer. He is remembered mainly for his collection of fairytales published in 1697 under the title Histoires, ou contes du temps passe, avec des Moralitez.

His book became famous as Contes De ma Mere L'Oye, or Tales of Mother Goose. It contained eight tales - The Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard, Puss in Boots, Diamonds and Toads, Cinderella, Riquet a la Houppe, and Tom Thumb - probably retold based on cruder folk versions.

Perrault's elegant and simple style made these tales extremely popular, and they quickly became the accepted version of the stories. These tales as we have them today owe their form and beauty to Perrault's magical retelling.
