The step-sisters see their wrongs, only when they find out who Cinderella really is, they ask her for forgiveness. In which, Cinderella than forgave her sisters, seeming to forget the years of abuse and turbulence that they have caused for her. Invites her step-sisters to live in the palace with the Prince and herself. However, this is not the case in the Brothers Grimm short story, Aschenputtel, which is not as forgiving as Cinderella. When the Prince finally figures out who Aschenputtel is, he takes her away to the palace to marry her.
In Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, many people agree that the Governess is an unreliable narrator, because of her actions, her tendency to jump to conclusions, a possible mental illness in the family, and the fact that everything that goes on in the story is just so strange. There are many things that may be intentionally left out by the Governess, such as sexual abuse of the children, because she is an unreliable narrator who hallucinates ghosts. The Governess is not mentally stable, making her extremely unreliable. The Governess herself states that she is “easily carried away,” (James 14) and often admits to hearing things in the house that she is not sure are real, "but these fancies were not marked enough not to be thrown off” (James 13). This immediately sets her up as someone we cannot trust.
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 some cases maybe not. Throughout the tragic play of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, the two star crossed lovers face constant obstacles caused by their parents lack of understanding, along with the poor relationships they have with their children. Romeo and Juliet’s parents never show that they care or understand what their children think. They just carry on with their decisions, without thinking of how others might
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
In a “Doll House” Nora’s husband was not her prince and knight in shining amour, but for Mathilda she had her knight and shinning amour all along. When young girls imagine about a doll house they imagine the perfect doll, Barbie and Ken, with the prettiness outfits and accessories to match as well as the perfect family. Nora is a pretty woman, but expressionless and quite unintelligent. Nora has a husband who treats her like a helpless child and is more worried about his place in society. As compared to the fairy tale Cinderella her husband could be the evil step mother who belittles Cinderella.
She loves her father dearly, however when her father asked her to do a love test, everything changed; Cordelia did not know how to express her love for her father verbally. The love test is a test where all the daughters must express how much they love their own father with words. Goneril and Regan went first and told their father that they love him with all their heart, however, when it was Cordelia went, she said nothing; She loves his “majesty according to [her] bond, no more nor less” (Shakespeare 1.1.91-92). Cordelia went against her father by defending her answer through reasoning that if her sisters love their father with all their hearts, they do not give any love to their husbands. In other words, she was implying that her sisters must be telling a lie.
“Little Miss Sunshine” is a comedy-drama movie about a dysfunctional family composed of a stressed mother, goal-obsessed father, unhappy brother, gay suicidal uncle, a foul-mouthed grandfather, and a little beautiful girl named Olive who wants to become a miss beauty, or better called “Little Miss Sunshine”. This family environment is more likely to influence negatively the children. In fact, the father’s notion of winning or losing (either you are a winner in life, or a looser, there’s no in-between) can represent a great pressure for the whole family, especially the children. This pushed the father many times to do some incredible things, even when it’s challenging, or crazy (as smuggling the grandfather’s body after his death out of the hospital, in order to arrive at time to the beauty contest). Such acts may be exaggerated, and shows the obsession of the father for winning.
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 Shakespeare 's play, King Lear, it is brutally obvious that Lear is strongly disliked, or even hated by his two older daughters, Goneril and Regan. In the novel A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley, Ginny’s and Rose’s hatred for their father doesn’t appear to be too over the top until the reasons they hate him so much are finally revealed. Both sets of sisters eventually end up retaliating against their fathers after they are given his land. Some may say that the daughters actions against their fathers was cruel, atrocious, and wrong; however, an argument could be made that their actions were justified by how their father had previously treated them. Perhaps Lear and Larry deserved to be treated as they were.
