                                        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.
