First Sentence

In his endeavor to establish the origins of the fairy tale for children, Peter Brooks stated that "when at the end of the seventeenth century Perrault writes down and publishes tales which had been told for indeterminate centuries- and would continue to be told, and would be collected in varying versions by the Grimm Brothers and other modern folklorists-he seems to be performing for children;s literature what must have been effected for literature long before: that is, he is creating a literature where before there had been myth and folklore.
