    “Sleeping Bueaty” Basile v.s. Perrault There are many ways you can contrast short stories from their character, to the plot, theme’s, and setting. One of the easiest ways to contrast short stories is by focusing in on the plot of the story and the characters. For example, in the two versions of “Sleeping Beauty” written by Giambattista Basile and Charles Perrault. While Giambattista Basile version is more of an adult version of “Sleeping Beauty”, Charles Perrault does write a more child friendly version of the story. Because Basile chose to be more graphic in his writing it can be easy to contrast the plot of the story and the characters. For example, when later on in the story he starts talking about forced sexual intercourse. There are a couple of similarities in the plot and characters in both stories like the prince in Perrault’s story and the king in Basiles story, but there is more contrast.

    her and the prince. Whether that opposition is a magical “Mistress of All Evil”(Sleeping Beauty) or if it is the mother of the prince, or even the king’s wife, all of them challenge and threaten the safety of “Sleeping Beauty.” As love conquers all “Sleeping Beauty” and the prince always overcome their troubles and true love conquers all. Another, maybe less noticeable moral is that you need to have courage and to be willing to go through trials to have true love. As always, the prince has to…

By examining these versions of Sleeping Beauty, I will reveal the complex and fluid development of women’s role in Western history. Tracing back to the 16th century, one of the earliest oral…

The same tales told six hundred years ago still lives in the minds of people after their authors have been long forgotten. Fairy tales hold a unique magic that allows them to grow, and to change, becoming fresh and relevant new generations.

    “Cinderella” and “Rapunzel” are two of the most popular fairy tales that are being told to children even today. Disney has made their own movie version of Rapunzel called Tangled, which is what I will be using for this paper. In this paper, I will be analyzing the lessons of feminism that are taught by these two fairy tales but are overlooked when we hear them as children. To be feminist is to support the idea “that women are and should be treated as potential intellectual equals and social…

    To most audiences the story of Pinocchio is a lighthearted one, filled with the adventures of a jovial puppet and his cricket conscience with the occasional unnerving scene. Yet this is not the dark and death defying tale that author Carlo Collodi originally wrote in his 1883 novel. As is the case with many Disney adaptations, the original story of Pinocchio has been erased from the public consciousness and replaced by that of the adaption. This erasure is due to the quality of the film and its…
