    Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale in which an ugly beast must earn the true love of a beautiful girl to free him from the spell of an evil fairy. The first published version was written by French author Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in the middle 18th century. It was a novel-length story intended for adult readers and addressing the issues of the marriage system of the day in which women had no right to choose their husband or to refuse to marry.

    Un palazzo deserto e fatato dove mani invisibili approntano vivande e giacigli. Un padrone di casa dall’aspetto mostruoso e terrorizzante. Una bellissima e coraggiosa fanciulla, prigioniera volontaria. Dall’incontro con la Bestia, la Bella si aspetta solo la morte, e una morte orribile. Ma andrà a finire proprio così? O non accadrà invece qualcosa di imprevedibile e impensabile? Una fiaba misteriosa e affascinante, nella traduzione classica di Carlo Collodi.
