Term Project- Sleeping Beauty as Literary Critique

So, why Sleeping Beauty? Well, why not, really? Regardless of the fact that it's Diana and I's favorite Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty is a form of art and literature just like anything else we could study. Some members of the class chose to look at lyrics and other movies- why leave out animation?

Sleeping Beauty actually has a strong lliterary background, based on its plot. Disney didn't come up with the story, but more like stole it from similar tales and reworked it into an animated feature.

What Diana and I set out to do with this project was uncover the literary criticism elements within the movie (animation, plot, and story) and how it can be applied to the work as a whole. The points mainly focused upon are historicism, literary canon (the Disney canon) and formalism. Our site is a fun journey into the world of a great movie and an even better interpretation of it.

Have to admitt I am not a big disney fan. But once I got over my feelings I can appreciate the argument(s) made last night and on your page. I just want to say good job.
