    popular fairytales are more relevant than the others. This is exemplified in the in depth look at two fairy tales written by the same author. That author is Charles Perrault. Perrault infamously re-wrote his own version of Cinderella and wrote the tale of Blue beard. Cinderella is known all around the globe; from what she wears to what she says, Bluebeard on the other hand is a story that is vague to the typical fairytale reader. The readers being children under fourteen who drive the industry so heavily. Perrault’s Cinderella has taken new heights all thanks to Disney, the theme that it has, and Perrault’s Cinderella contains no violence or gore. To begin with, Disney…

    Have you ever been treated like no one wants you? Well, Cinderella has a pretty good idea of what it's like. In her story she is being mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, Anastasia, and Drizella. In both the Disney's version and the Grimm's version she feels this way. As she tries her best to please them it seems that it's just not good enough, but with a little help her dreams can come true. While some similarities between Disney's Cinderella and Grimm's Cinderella are evident, the…

    Cinderella’s work is never done and is always treated as if she was a peasant working for her master. The fairy tale of a Cinderella is always portrayed as a woman given hard times because of her villainous stepmom and devilish stepsisters. Nonetheless, there are many interpretations of the Cinderella fairy tale and they compare and contrast each other. The French version of the “Cinderella” by Charles Perrault includes Cinderella working very hard, but forgives her family and lets them live in…

    I felt that Sexton’s “Cinderella” was a direct counterpoint to Disney’s version of Cinderella because the contrast between the two is so stark. However, after doing a little research I found out that Sexton published a book of poems based on the Grimm Brothers fairy tale called Transformations. So Sexton was not calling out Disney specifically, still, the plot is similar and they can be compared and contrasted. Most are familiar with the Disney version, I perhaps more than most having two…

To begin with, Robert K. Martin believes that the Cinderella’s theme is especially apparent in the first chapters of the novel, "as Jane Eyre emphasizes her own position as abandoned child, with evil aunt and two [sic] evil cousins, whose parentage is…

    Cinderella Fairy tales are not what most of the world thinks they are. Quite a few of them are horrifying and gruesome but all of the stories have a specific meaning to them just like any other. In more ways than one, “The fairy tale demonstrates what it meant to be beautiful and heroic and how to achieve “royal” status with the help of grace and good fortune”(Zipes 4). Many of these stories have stood up against the test of time due to ethnic groups using storytelling to recover history and…

The wires tore loose, like tendons stretched to the max. She felt the loss of…
