sleeping beautyDialogue around “Les Belles au bois dormant” with Dr. Charlotte Trinquet du Lys (University of Central Florida) and Dr. Rori Bloom (University of Florida)
Dialogue in French with discussion in French and/or English

Taking inspiration from Charles Perrault’s late seventeenth-century fairy tale, “La Belle au Bois dormant,” Drs. Trinquet and Bloom will explore several versions of the “Sleeping Beauty” story, including Italian sources and French variations on the theme. Their aim is to treat a familiar, classic text in order to explore its literary and cultural complexity

This event is open to all but especially undergraduate students in French and Francophone Studies who would like to participate in a moderated discussion of French literature. If interested, consider reading Perrault’s “La Belle au bois dormant” here. You might be surprised by this version’s unfamiliar ending!
