However, in this story, the king’s absenteeism is probably made in order to emphasize the conflict between stepmother and child, woman and woman. As mentioned in The Queen’s Looking Glass, it is possible that the “King’s voice resides now in [the queen’s] own mirror, her own mind” (Gilbert and Gubar 38). This goes to show that it is the opinions of men that tend to make women go crazy over beauty, turning woman against woman. In order to…
