Abstract

Nearly all the stories by Marie-Catherine d'Aulnoy (1650-1705) contain identifiable tale types. This is clear upon examining her tales in conjunction with seminal works of classification such as Stith Thompson's Motif-Index of Folk Literature (1932-1936), Paul Delarue and Marie-Louise Tenèze's Conte populaire français (1957-1985), and Hans-Jörg Uther's Types of International Folk-tales (ATU; 2004). The significant presence of tale types in d'Aulnoy's oeuvre argues well for the universality of her appeal.
