Sleeping Beauty and Snow White are two of the most popular fairy tales of all time and have intrigued readers for centuries. Both have been retold continuously in modern times in novels, poetry, plays, movies and more. Both have also been criticized for their apparently passive and occasionally foolish heroines. Despite first impressions, the stories and their many variants are filled with female characters, good and evil, active and passive. Whatever your view of either tale, it is fascinating to study their histories and explore why they have resonated with our ancestors as well as our own generations. In all the tales, whether the sleep is enchanted with a time limit or intended to be a permanent death, it is ultimately overcome, sometimes through accidental means and other times through heroic methods. With motivations ranging from petty offenses to overwhelming bouts of jealousy, the tales also present interesting villains. Offering over seventy stories, this collection compiles several variants of Sleeping Beauty and Snow White tales from around the world, some dating back to Greek myths and others to medieval times. Many of the tales are new translations, a few appearing for the first time in English. At times the stories are obviously related to each other and at other times the relationship is tenuous. Some additional stories with sleeping heroines, as well as heroes, are also presented although they are not strictly classified as Sleeping Beauty or Snow White tales. Whether you are a student of folklore or an armchair enthusiast, this anthology offers a diverse array of tales with a unifying theme that both entertains and educates, all gathered for the first time in one helpful collection.

I am working on retelling the Snow White fairy tale, but to do that, I want to know as much about the original as possible. Needless to say, I've been spending a lot of time on Heidi Anne Heiner's website. She has compiled dozens of cultural versions of both the Snow White and Sleeping Beauty stories into this anthology, and I cannot begin to say how interesting and helpful it has been in my research. I even wrote a paper on one of the stories found in it for a Humanities class. I always refer back to it. I highly recommend this book and any of Heidi's other anthologies!

I enjoyed the different versions. It was a good a good read.

I wish Ms. Heiner had been writing when I was in graduate school! Her works are essential references for the student or scholar of literature who likes a theme / motif / archetype approach to literature. Put them on the shelf next to the Homer, Shakespeare, the Bible, and your Joseph Campbell books. Yes, literature is self-referencing - but it also references the collective oral tradition of stories and fairy tales that continually re-incarnate themselves under the pens of new writers.

Ms. Heiner's book is approachable for the average reader (even teens), and enjoyable for anyone who loves fairy tales. If you like this one, check out her volumes on Rapunzel, the frog prince, and more.

Sleeping Beauties examines the slumbering heroine tradition across countries, cultures, and time periods. You'll find many tales associated with the literary tradition or culture you are interested in retold in this thorough anthology, all appropriately documented. There is also a reading list of additional fairy tales, identified by the cultures from which they spring, and a bibliography to help you locate written versions of the tales that didn't make it into this volume.
