When Gabriela Mistral wrote her version of the Sleeping Beauty tale, she found her inspiration in Charles Perrault’s celebrated Tales and Stories of the Past, written in the 17th century. Mistral conceived her text in the form of a verse fairy tale which exhibits the beauty and grace that were so prized by the Modernists. Mistral’s “Sleeping Beauty in the Wood” was first published in Bogotá, Colombia, by the newspaper El Gráfico, on 14 July 1928, and Editorial Amanuta now gives new life to this poem by publishing it as a picture book with illustrations by Carmen Cardemil that lend a modern aesthetic to this very legendary story.
