The way Cinderella and Tam are getting married is the most significant difference between the two tales. According to country’s traditions and the culture, every tale takes a different way to find a partner. Cinderella meets the prince at the party. She dances with him; she loves him from the first sight. Otherwise, Tam never meets the prince. The prince loves the shoe 's owner after the birds have thrown it in front of him. He falls in love with Tam because he thinks the shoe 's owner will be pretty according to her feet 's size.
Their differences are from their fathers and royalty. In Aschenputtel, her father favors the stepsisters and he marries a new wife within the next season. When she goes to the ball, she meets the prince and he follows her home, finally finding her. Whereas in Twelve Months, the main character’s father is not included in the story at all. When she comes back, she meets a farmer. The farmer is considered the royal aspect in this tale. Their differences are what makes the story lines completely different, but have the same concept which is, good wins in the end.
The narrators in both works prove to be similar in several ways. In “The Tell-Tale Heart” the story is told through a psycho narrator; both stories contain apparent psychological imbalances within their story tellers, “
A lot of the fairy tale stories that we have seen as young adults and even as adults are original folk tale stories that have been modified and rewritten to accommodate our new cultures. Cinderella happens to be one of these stories that have been changed over the years. There are many different versions of Cinderella, an African Cinderella, a Hungarian Cinderella and even a Chinese version. All of the Cinderella’s are similar in plot, but the author dictates the story’s theme based on the people whom he is writing for which completely changes the story’s tone, mood and other elements. While Perrault's version stresses the values and materialistic worries of his middle-class audience, Grimm’s' focus is on the harsh realities of life
The last difference between the two stories is quite disturbing. In Disney’s Cinderella, when it came time to try on the slipper the two stepsisters tried their hardest to squish their feet into it. However, Grimms version is drastically different. Instead of trying to just squish their feet in, one step sister cut the heel of her foot off and the other cut her big toe off. A reason to why Brothers Grimm might have included that part is because they wrote this story in 1812. Disney did not want to have that in their version of the story because of the audience that watches, such as little children and their families. It would not be as enjoyable nor as humorous if they included that gruesome part of Grimm’s story.
Have you ever had a dark and gloomy day? Imagine having that feeling every single day. The Grimm’s Cinderella was written in 1812. 1812 was one of the harshest years for America. An event that formed it was the war against Great Britain and the United States. Not only was there a war, but there was also a series of disastrous harvests. Taxes got higher, and more than twenty people who were involved with a Luddite Act were hung. In 1812, there was also the only assassination of a prime minister, who was shot dead in the House of Commons. The Grimm Brothers have put the dark times of 1812 into their stories. Some of their stories contain violence, child abuse, and wicked mothers. They came up with these types of stories after their father died, and when they struggled out of school. That gave them enough time to research and put together a collection of folk tales. Now you can see why the Grimm’s Cinderella was dark and gloomy. Although the plot stayed the same, over the years, the story did get lighter. Disney’s Cinderella came out in 1950. In 1950, learning information was not by fear, but by engaging happiness. Disney’s Cinderella transforms the Grimm’s Cinderella into a happier atmosphere. While some similarities between Disney’s Cinderella and Grimm’s Cinderella are noticeable, the differences are pronounced, especially when referring to the slippers, her father, and the ball.
To start, there are some differences between the two stories.In the passage from the novel The Georges and the Jewels the main character talks about falling off her horse, but instead of getting up right away she lies
Grimm’s tale conveys a story of a girl whose morals, soul, and faith in God and her mother’s words are what defines her beauty. They reinstate this point by describing even the step-sisters as works of beauty. By
Some ways the original Tell Tale Heart and the rewritten version are similar are the mood and the plot. The mood of the stories are both suspenseful and erie and build up tension throughout the story. According to (Poes) text it states, “I arose and argued about trifles, in a high key and with violent gesticulations, but the noise steadily increased.” According to (Johnson’s) text it states,”We talked a little longer, and then suddenly he gripped his head, and doubled over. Something was wrong.” This quotation also built up suspense because the man across from the policemen fell over and made the policemen nervous about whether or not the man was the murderer. Another thing that makes both versions is the plot. The plot of both stories are in the old man’s house in the 1800’s. According to (Poes) text it states, “And then, when my head was well in the room, I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye.” The narrator was in the old man’s bed room, waiting for the perfect time to commit the murder. According to (Johnson’s) text it states, “We went all around the large house, and saw nothing suspicious or anything that could have caused a murder. The man pulled up three wooden chairs, and let us sit and we chatted amongst ourselves, while he sat across from us.” The policemen sat in the exact place where the corpse was under the floorboards, and never noticed until the man showed them.
The narrators in the two stories both possess similar traits, but some aspects of each narrator are distinct. In “The Tell Tale Heart,” the narrator is
These are just two examples out of many. The versions of fairy tales by Grimm and Disney are always similar in nature and moral. The differences in the details of the story range from minute to highly significant. The punishments placed upon the villains are always
This interactive oral touched on a number of different topics that helped further my cultural and contextual understanding of The Thief and the Dogs. Although all of the topics discussed by this group connected to the novel, I found the most connections within the topic explaining the Egyptian views on marriages and divorce in the 1950s. I learned that Egyptian laws tend to discriminate against women in terms of divorce and adultery. However, women are allowed to divorce their husbands so long as they can prove in a course of law that their husbands are not adequately providing for their families. Additionally, it is quite common for people to remarry after divorce and this practice is not frowned upon. This connects to the novel in terms of
“Adaptation is repetition, but repetition without replication” asserts Hutcheon (2006: 7), stating that there are reasons why an adapter would decide to make certain changes. Regarding character development, the Grimm brothers’ compilation is quite similar to the original Sleeping Beauty tale in the sense that not much is said of the evil fairy in neither of them. The original tale describes the evil character as “a very wicked fairy (...) with an evil smile on her face”, and the Grimm brothers just call her “the thirteenth fairy”. In both versions, the reason why the fairy casts the spell on the princess is because she hadn’t been invited to the baby’s christening, and that is all we know about the character. Undoubtedly, the focus of the
