The Complete Fairy Tales

Charles Perrault
Translated by Christopher Betts

Oxford World's Classics

  • Perrault's fairy tales established the versions of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding- Hood and others that we know today, and also include the verse tales Griselda, Three Silly Wishes, and the notorious Donkey-Skin.
  • The tales are accompanied by a fascinating introduction that explores the genesis of the stories and why they have such great imaginative power, their relationship to other versions and the many interpretations to which they have been subject.
