Abstract: 

When people think of fairy tales, “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” and “Snow White” come to mind as being “traditional” tales that have been told for centuries. However, this is far from the truth, and we often do not realize the fact that the “canon” of fairy tales changes in every age (ours being largely defined by Disney). From the 1690s through the early twentieth century in France, Germany, and England, the fairy-tale writer Marie-Catherine d’Aulnoy enjoyed the status Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Andersen enjoy today. Her tales impacted generations of artists, and this talk considers the legacy of one of her tales, “The Green Serpent,” in French literary culture, British pantomime, and French classical music.
