There are many well-known fairy tales, but none as controversial and thought-provoking as “Sleeping Beauty”. A favorite amongst children and adults alike, this story raises questions about morality, free will, and the role of women in society. The central plot of a sleeping princess being awakened by true love’s kiss is known to all. But when it comes to the resolution of Sleeping Beauty – that is, how the story ultimately concludes – there seems to be no clear answer.

The original version of Sleeping Beauty can be traced back to ancient myths and legends from around the world. From Greek mythology’s tale of Eros and Psyche to Hindu folklore surrounding Ruru and Priyamvada, one common thread we see is that a profound sleep often plays a pivotal role in these stories.

However, it was Charles Perrault’s written account published in 1697 – entitled La Belle au Bois Dormant – which became the most widely accepted version across Europe. According to Perrault’s tale where an evil fairy deviously cursed Princess Aurora with death on her sixteenth birthday after not being invited on her christening ceremony..This classic rendition ends with Prince Phillip awakening Princess Aurora with a kiss so full of love that its magical power broke through Maleficent’s curse.

But then came The Brothers Grimm version entitled Little Briar Rose which marked significant changes including: omitting the sexual assault portion between Sleeping beauty & prince (as seen in other versions), having thorn bushes instead allowing prince access inside castle rather flying horse or ship; abolishing any revival potion for sleeping state such using breathing apparatus etc.; adding essential details like princess bore twins named Sun & Moon since she conceived before getting bewitched; finally happy ending where they marry each other followed by ”lived happily ever after.”

In Robert Stromberg’s 2014 Disney film ‘Maleficent’, while they take inspiration mainly from Brother Grimms’ account yet they presented Maleficent as a conflicted fairy who did not maliciously curse Aurora due to jealousy but it happened out of vengeance because she was betrayed by King Stefan over mutual love., further, we see Sleeping Beauty awakening differently with an act of maternal love.

So coming back to the question statement which best describes the Resolution of sleeping beauty? Firstly, it’s vital to note that there are several versions. Each author and adaptation seems to have their unique take on how the story resolves itself. Some conclude with romanticism prevailing, some depict stealthful conquests while others share redemption arcs or compassion triumphing over enmity.

The most widely accepted resolution is undoubtedly Perrault’s version where true love ultimately saves Princess Aurora from her eternal slumber. It’s no surprise that this specific resolution has captured our imagination and remains one that continues to fascinate us till now. This ending presents a fairytale-like scenario where finding true love can combat any evil power conquered on oneself without fail.

However, Grimms’ ‘Little Briar Rose’ has become increasingly popular owing to full & complete family dynamics showcased in every step after prince enters castle right into childbearing yet remaining cursed state until Aurora returns his homecoming kiss despite being asleep for 100 years. The complexity within happy ending allows readers/audiences visualizing quite realistic scenarios like dangers associated with getting lost in dense forests even when blessed kingdom lay adjacent – as Twilight requires staying sunlight at rays reach reminds us of such circumstances unveiling dusk concealing plausibility or harm hiding inside what looks beautiful externally.

Finally, Robert Stromberg’s Maleficent presents entirely different perspective vanquishing villainous caricature built around all-time deeply hated character-lack efforts made towards understanding root cause leading up troubles shown ironically still befallen on innocent ones giving another layer meaning- humans vs creatures divides causing wars like issues debated globally daily elsewhere under varied names than simply untrue brutality based biases producing irreversible repercussions. Furthermore, the ending clearly depicts that love comes in many forms and it revolves around nurturing bond with the child you raise.

In conclusion, there is no single answer to which statement best describes Sleeping Beauty’s resolution. It’s subjective based on the reader’s interpretation of how they visualized princess Aurora waking up from her eternal slumber – whether by true love’s kiss, a symbolic moment illustrating we bloom when someone holds our hand or senses maternal affection even in such surreal sleep paralysis state endured for decades- without letting know anyone else aware about existence except loyal well-wishers be constant companions avoiding harm possibility posed without considering gender-specific bias towards them then surely readers can identify purer motives guiding human actions than discriminating between different beings unique qualities attainable just through cooperation beyond superficial looks alone. What seems essential is that regardless of adaptation or variation, the story continues to captivate us still today and keeps contributing something valuable every time it shared worth cherishing equally as before its very first creation centuries ago!
