Charles Perrault published The Tales Of Mother Goose in France in 1697 during what scholars call the first "vogue" of tales produced by learned French writers. The genre that we now know so well was new and an uncommon kind of literature in the epic world of Louis XIV's court.

Perrault's tales are primarily moralistic or didactic, with elements of Christian teaching
