Fiction > Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch > The Sleeping Beauty and other Fairy Tales
Certainly the translations, when finished, did not satisfy me, and so I turned back to the beginning and have rewritten the stories in my own way, which (as you may say with the Irish butler) “may not be the best claret, but ’tis the best ye’ve got.”
Preface
Sir Arthur
Quiller-Couch
The Sleeping Beauty and other Fairy Tales
From the Old French
 
Quiller-Couch’s selection of four children's stories from the Cabinet des Fées, the French collection spanning over forty volumes. What began as a strict translation became a “retelling” of these classic fairy tales.
