Sun, Moon, and Talia (Sole, Luna, e Talia) is an Italian literary fairy tale written by Giambattista Basile in his 1634 work, The Pentamerone. Charles Perrault retold this fairy tale in 1697 as Sleeping Beauty.

Sun, Moon and Talia
Wise men warned the great King that his daughter Talia was in grave danger – there was poison in the palace’s flax.  A ban was put on flax but as expected, Talia still ran across a splinter while spinning flax on the flax-spinning wheel.  In great despair, the king placed her sleeping (or dead) body on a velvet clothe and left her in the forest.

Some time later, a rich nobleman was hunting in the woods when he ran across the abandoned body of Sleeping Beauty.  Far from planting a kiss, the nobleman instead raped her sleeping body, from which resulted a pregnancy.  Nine months later, Sleeping Beauty gave birth to two children (and named them Sun and Moon) and the forest fairies took care of them while Sleeping Beauty continued her slumber.  Whilst placing the babes to Sleeping Beauty’s breasts, one of the children accidentally mistook her thumb for a nipple and sucked out the poison splinter.  Talia awoke from her deep sleep.

Months later, the nobleman decided to return to the woods to have more sex with Sleeping Beauty’s body when to his surprise, he found her awake.  The nobleman confesses that he raped her and they again had sex in the barn. The nobleman then returns home to his wife.

The nobleman’s wife found out about the sexual encounter and ordered the children be kidnapped and cooked alive.  The cook prepared the fiendish disk and served it to the rich nobleman at his dinner.  As the nobleman finished his meal, the wife boldly announced “you are eating what is your own!”.  Alas, as it turns out, the cook had a soft heart and instead of killing and cooking the children, he substituted a goat instead.  Talia and the children and her rapist new love interest lived happily ever after.
