The Brothers Grimm story is about a young girl named Ella that had her mother die when she was really little. She was raised by her stepmother and her father, who treated her very poorly, and had to grow up with two beautiful but evil stepsisters. She was treated like a servant and had to sleep near the fireplace every night for warmth, wake up early to cook and clean, and only had a smock to wear during the day and night. One day, there is a king’s ball in the palace for the prince to find a wife and every eligible lady is to attend, but not poor Cinderella. She cried to her mother’s grave and the birds gave her fine dresses, shoes, and lavish accessories to go to the ball for three days, where she meets the prince, falls in love, and later lives happily ever after.
The stepmother has two daughters who are filled with jealousy and envy. Ever since becoming Cinderella’s stepmother, she has treated Cinderella differently than her two daughters. Cinderella was turned into a servant in her own house, and she could not do anything. When “the king of the castle invited his son to a fancy ball he said he could choose his bride”. However, when “Cinderella” wanted to go to the ball, she could not go because “she does have a suitable dress to go to the ball.” When her two mice friends named “Jacques and Gus”, made her a dress her stepsisters ripped it apart.

While many think Cinderella it is thought of a poor girl that had a good life with her parents. Cinderella had a mother and a Father at the beginning of all three versions of Cinderella.

Well, many people think that but what if the ways the interpretation of Cinderella is about to change. The three tales of Cinderella analyzed have very similar structure and substance, themes, archetypes like the circle and of course the Godmother character deviates significantly from each other.
In the story Ashputtle she has two stepsisters which is the same as in Cinderella. In both stories both of the stepsisters are very mean to Ashputtle/Cinderella. In the story Ashputtle they said to her, “Get into the kitchen where you belong!” They took away her fine clothes and gave her an old gray dress and wooden shoes to wear.

Instead, there is some element of living after death, and this can be clearly seen in the character of Cinderella 's mother. In the Grimm Brothers version, after being harassed by her stepmother Cinderella runs immediately to her mother 's grave which is beneath a hazel tree. She then cries out asking for a dress so that she can attend the ball when “the bird threw a gold and silver dress down to her, and slippers embroidered with silk and silver” (pg. 3 para 9) This bird is a reincarnation, or extension of her mothers spirit to help Cinderella even after death.
