    Villeneuve's Version

    A widower merchant lives in a mansion with his twelve children (six sons and six daughters). All his daughters are very beautiful, but the youngest daughter, was named “little beauty” for she was the most gorgeous among all of them.

    Harries identifies the two most popular strands of fairy tale in the 18th century as the fantastical romance for adults and the didactic tale for children. Beauty and the Beast is interesting as it bridges this gap, with Villeneuve's version being written as a salon tale for adults and Beaumont'sbeing written as a didactic tale for children.

    Tatar (2017) compares the tale to the theme of "animal brides and grooms" found in folklore throughout the world,pointing out that the French tale was specifically intended for the preparation of young girls in 18th century France for arranged marriages.The urban opening is unusual in fairy tales, as is the social class of the characters, neither r...
