Traditional Folk or Fairy Tale Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

"

Despite their differences, these versions do also have aspects in common. In each tale, it is true love which saves Sleeping Beauty from her slumber. After she is revived, she marries her prince charming and lives "happily ever after." All three versions also tell of Sleeping Beauty as the long awaited only child of a loving king. In the "Sun, Moon, and Talia" as well as the Walt Disney version, Sleeping Beauty is sixteen when she falls into her slumber. These similarities show the importance of certain social conceptions concerning patience and the value of true love.
