Atwood began the story as the female lead being beautiful, but changed her to being average looking, and changes the stereotypical evil stepmother to an evil stepfather. On the contrary, Perrault follows the basic generic conventions of fairy tales by having the prince marry the beautiful princess and writes the main antagonists as two older women. Perrault uses his story to frame the prince as the hero who saves the sleeping princess and her kingdom, and later saves his family from his evil cannibalistic mother. Perrault’s story has more of a magical aspect than Atwood’s since he includes fairies and curses in his story. Perrault’s story offers an escape from the trials and
There are three archetype in the story of Cinderella. The most obvious one is Cinderella, a girl who is treated wrongly by her stepmother, the second archetype is her wicked stepmother, the “obstacle” of Cinderella and the third is the prince, which is the hero of the story.

Cinderella herself is a figure deeply embedded into popular culture, and most will cite Disney as the parent of the story’s popularity. The story centers around the timelessly beautiful Cinderella; a young woman who has lost her father, and thus is required to live with her evil stepmother and stepsisters who treat her as the help. Despite her step-relatives’ abuse, Cinderella remains kind and gentle, and befriends the estate’s many animals.
Growing up, I always thought of a fairytale as something sacred and something gentle. The girl begins the story with the tragedy of her life, for example, the stepmother uses her as a slave or the parents abandoned her and her brother in the woods. Then the story proceeds to talk about how much she wishes she could have another life, the most deserving girl finally catching a break. Something spectacular happens and she then lives happily ever after. That is what a fairytale mean to me and what they all resemble to me.

‘A Mother In A Refugee Camp’ is a tragic and emotive poem, written by Chinua Achebe. The poet describes the hardship of refugee camps and the difficulty of accepting the death of those you truly care about. The poem exemplifies this struggle by describing the mother’s love for the child through direct description of the “mother’s pride” and her “tenderness for” her son. The word “pride” makes her feelings clear and the use of the comparison to “Madonna and Child” amplifies her tenderness. The poet lists tactile imagery which emphasise the mother’s loving actions, “she had bathed him And rubbed him down with bare palms”.
