Transcript of Sleeping Beauty

Let me give you some perspective....
The 100 years sleep is central in most of the versions.
Rape, adultery, sexual rivalry, and attempted cannibalism make the plot a little less than "child friendly."
But, Perrault added his own touch!
Giambattista Basile was an Italian solider, public official, writer, and poet in the late 1500's and early 1600s. His short-story collection was one of the earliest such collections based on folktales and served as an important source for later fairy-tale writers, such as Charles Perrault in France and the Brothers Grimm in Germany. In "The Story of Stories" a prince and his wife are entertained for five days by 10 women who tell them 50 stories, among which are the familiar tales of Puss in Boots, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
Themes changed or diminished
consensual sex
male coming-of-age
subdued sexual rivalry
Story constricts more
Kiss "awakens" beauty
sex missing
cannibalism missing
Sleeping Beauty
Basile's "Sleeping Beauty" reflects a sophisticated story
with complications of the plot and a specific tone that
differs from those that follow it.
