Written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740, La Belle et La Bête is a fairy tale emphasizing the insignificance of physical appearance in love. The fairy tale starts with a merchant picking a rose from a garden in the palace of a prince bewitched and turned into a hideous beast. In return for the rose picked from the garden, Belle had to live with a Beast in the palace. When Belle confesses her love to the beast, she undoes the curse, restoring the Beasts human form.
