Sleeping Beauty (French: La Belle au Bois dormant, "The Beauty asleep in the wood") is a fairy tale classic, the first in the set published in 1697 by Charles Perrault, Contes de ma Mère l'Oye ("Tales of Mother Goose").
While Perrault's version is better known, an older variant, the tale Sun, Moon, and Talia, was contained in Giambattista Basile's Pentamerone (published 1634). The most familiar Sleeping Beauty in the English speaking world has become the 1959 Walt Disney animated film, which draws as much from the Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ballet (Saint Petersburg, 1890) as from Perrault.
