    Abstract:
    Scholarship on the Sleeping Beauty tale has gone largely unappreciated. Underlying the story’s obvious themes and motifs—birth, death/sleep, rebirth—and complicating its gender dynamic is a preoccupation with orality and telling that gives the story a significant self-reflective dimension. This article examines how the tale reflects on storytelling and the medium of its telling, not only in the classical versions by Perrault and Grimm, but also in the Roman de Perceforest and Disney’s animated film.
