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.
In the story, Cinderella by the Grimm Brothers, the protagonist, Cinderella, endures seemingly unbeatable obstacles on her path to love. The evil stepsisters exemplify a forbidding obstacle that the protagonist of the story must overcome. The constant toxicity and menial tasks that the sisters placed on Cinderella made the task of going to the ball difficult for her. The stepsisters in Cinderella are similar to the green gremlin monsters in the film Destino in that they hinder the progress of the protagonist. The female protagonist in Destino was dancing around when these gremlin monsters ripped away her dress leaving her with a new problem to face.
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. The Father figure and Cinderella had a terrible woman live with them because The Father thought that Cinderella would need a Mother figure since her biological mother had passed away, right? 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 all three versions, death is not viewed as definitive, or the end all be all. 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.
Miss Havisham pushed Pip towards Estella to fulfill the passion she had once knew as her own. She lacked the opportunity of truly being in a successful romantic relationship, due to her husband leaving her at the altar. Havisham wanted Pip to lean towards Estella, but she was truly just the puppet master of Pip’s heart. “... Not the “fairy godmother” Pip thinks she is” Pip considers Miss Havisham as this adopted mother, who guides Pip to learn to care for others while she is just preparing him for heartbreak (Bloom 156). Havisham continues to push Pip to want Estella, while puppeteering Estella to become this cold-hearted soul who is unable to love anyone.
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 Grimm brothers however have a different point of view on that matter. They feel that what you do will come back to haunt you and you can’t be a sinful person and be forgiven. Cinderella was always kind and compassionate and she got rewarded for that, she married the prince and escaped her horrible life. She no longer weeps at her mother’s grave and cries herself to
Cinderella is a young girl who is forced into being a servant for her family. She longs for love and affection. She finds it when at the ball, but when she has to leave, she leaves in a hurry and one of the slippers that she is wearing gets left behind at the ball and the Prince finds and starts to look for her. Even though they were separated for short periods of time they still find each other in the end.The Prince takes her to his palace and they get married. This general plot stays the same for all versions of the story, but the differences between Disney’s Cinderella and Grimm’s Cinderella are striking, and they deserve through examination.

Cultural values are often represented in popular stories, such as Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister and Aschenputtel. Cinderella is known as a girl who is hounded by her stepmother and stepsisters after losing her parents, then overcomes hardship by marrying a prince with the help of a fairy godmother. Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister is a novel written by Gregory Maguire, which takes place in the Netherlands. Contrastingly, Aschenputtel is a German tale written by the Brothers Grimm after Germany recovered from the Thirty Years War. With these distinct backgrounds, the cultural values in each novel differ, but the morals the authors share have never changed.
Chapter 8: Hanseldee and Greteldum Harry Potter reflects the fairytale Cinderella. Both main characters have awful relationships with their step parents and are desperate to get out of their house. In Cinderella a fairy godmother comes to save her. In Harry Potter, Hagrid shows up as a fairy godmother of sorts and rescues him from his step parents.

He comes to visit her for the last time; Edna leaves Robert at her house and told him to wait for her. When she got back, Robert wasn’t there and left her a note, “I love you.
