Description


The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of French fairy tales and later of English nursery rhymes.As a character, she appeared in a song, the first stanza of which often functions now as a nursery rhyme.This, however, was dependent on a Christmas pantomime, a successor to which is still performed in the United Kingdom.

The term's appearance in English dates back to the early 18th century, when Charles Perrault's fairy tale collection, Contes de ma M re l'Oye, was first translated into English as Tales of My Mother Goose. Later a compilation of English nursery rhymes, titled Mother Goose's Melody, or, Sonnets for the Cradle, helped perpetuate the name both in Britain and the United States.
