It is different with the moral of Griselda, which encourages them to put up with the behaviour of their husbands, and seeks to show that there is no husband so brutal and capricious that, through her patience, an upright woman cannot change his character. As regards the fable of Psyche, which in itself is delightful, and very ingenious, I will compare the moral concealed in it to preface 5 that of Donkey-Skin when I have discovered what it is; but hitherto I have been unable to guess. I know that ‘psyche’ means the soul; but I cannot grasp what we are supposed to understand by Love* being in love with Psyche, that is, with the soul, and I can grasp even less the additional idea that she would have been happy as long as she did not know who her lover was, that is, Love, but that as soon as she knew she would become very unhappy.
Only then does he progressively acquire the necessary perquisites, a princess, an estate, and a castle. However, they are acquired in the wrong order, so to speak. In reality, a young man of merit rising through society would have made his fortune ﬁrst, then bought estates, then married; only at a late stage would he be ennobled and given a title. But Puss’s plan assumes that if the title is given—by him—all the rest will follow, and to our delight it does. In other words the attraction of the story is that it is almost pure entertainment: the lightest of the Contes, and one of the most skilful.
Even the medium of print was being superseded by electronic communications, just as print had superseded oral tradition. It is common to lament the passing of fairy-tale as a consequence of these changes. 44 However, it may be too early to pronounce it dead. Writers of books and makers of ﬁlms go on using characters and plots from Perrault’s tales and others. We should perhaps accept that fairy-tales from the past have to be put into modern forms in order to be appreciated; that is preferable to oblivion.
