They are sent to live with him because it is a safer place during the war (World War II). The four children, Susan, Edmund, Peter and Lucy end up at the back of a wardrobe in a magical world called Narnia when they are looking for their sister Lucy while playing hide and seek. The author of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe strongly showed Christian elements within the characters, the battle between good and evil and the courage that was shown by the characters also. Good vs evil is a big theme in the British novel. The first sign the reader sees of good vs. evil is in the very beginning of the book.

The ending passages of Cyrus Macmillan's "Indian Cinderella" accentuates the different effects that truth has on physical identity. The catalyst for these changes is the cheifs youngest daughter [Cinderellas] visit to Strong Wind. When Cinderella tells the truth about what she sees when she looks at Strongwind, the effects on both of their personal identities is apparent. While Cinderellas dentity evolves with her truthful answers, Strong Winds identity regresses. When Cinderella resolves to seek Strong Wind, she is decribed as having a burnt face, clothing patched with "bits of birch bark from the trees" and, "few little ornamets."
The first component of a liminoid pilgrimage is the separation from the society or group that the pilgrim is a part of. For the characters in Into The Woods, this society is the kingdom they live in. The first act opens up to three scenes on one stage: Cinderella in her stepmother’s house, Jack and his mother trying to milk their cow, and The Baker and The Baker’s Wife in their bakery. For simplicity’s sake, this analysis will follow just The Baker and The Baker’s Wife’s journey into the woods. The first act follows them and their wish for a child.
Once these characters are in the woods working on accomplishing their goals, they each face challenges that set them back. For example, Red is stopped by the wolf and later eaten, Jack is attacked by the giant, Cinderella is internally struggling with how to tell the prince who she truly is, and the Baker and his wife lose the cow. These challenges they face throughout their journey through the “woods”, all symbolize the obstacles we face everyday when we are working towards our ambitions. To go along with the setbacks, we also watch Red, Cinderella, and the Baker and his wife get lost in the “woods”. This issue of getting lost correlates with the idea that we get distracted or lost along the way while trying to achieve what we wish for.
Cinderella Stories Today I will be comparing and contrasting in my essay on four of the nine-hundred Cinderella stories. The first three books were prose, while the fourth one was a poem. The first Cinderella story is Aschenputtel, which is the modern day Cinderella, but more gruesome than the Disney version. The second story is called Yeh-Shen which was about a girls who loved her fish; when it was suddenly killed, as its bones became magic, and so on. The third story is the Algonquin Cinderella, which was about an invisible man, who was seen by Cinderella, and they were both crowned king and queen.
Lewis, the intelligent man behind the famous stories of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe published in 1950, incorporated nature through symbols in his novels. The Witch in the novel was a symbol for winter, a season in nature. She was cold hearted, bitter, and evil. As Lucy’s journey continued the reader learned that spring had never come to the land of Narnia. Lucy discovered from the fawn that in order for the weather to change, and the snow to disappear, the witch must be dead.
According to Scott Meslow from The Atlantic Magazine,” From “ Rapunzel” to “Hansel and Gretel”, from “Cinderella” to “Sleeping Beauty”, and all the way up to “Little Snow White”. By contemporary standards, the Grimms’ original stories are packed with violence and sex: “The Juniper Tree” features a stepmother killing her stepson and serving him to his father for stew, and “Darling Roland” features a mother-to-daughter axe murder.” And he also said,“The Cinderella story itself is about a maiden’s virginity, represented by the glass slipper. In the story, Cinderella is the most sacred maiden in the land and it is clear she is a virgin. The shoe is too tight for any other girl except Cinderella to wear. When the stepmother breaks one of the slippers, it suggests the breaking of the hymen.
