                                        SLEEPING BEAUTY

                                              Did You Know?





                          (French: La Belle au bois dormant


                        "The Beauty Sleeping in the Wood")


                                      by Charles Perrault or

                 "Little Briar Rose" (German: Dornröschen)


               by the Brothers Grimm is a classic fairy tale


              written by Charles Perrault and the Brothers


               Grimm, which involves a beautiful princess, a


              sleeping enchantment, and a handsome prince.


          The version collected by the Brothers Grimm was


              an orally transmitted version of the originally

               literary tale published by Charles Perrault in


                Histoires ou contes du temps passé in 1697.


          This in turn was based on Sun, Moon, and Talia by


                 Italian poet Giambattista Basile (published


         posthumously in 1634), which was in turn based on

                                     one or more folk tales.


                  The earliest known version of the story is


            Perceforest, composed between 1330 and 1344


                                   and first printed in 1528.
