In both stories, the main character was given a derogatory name by her step-family. In an attempt, to not only break her spirits but to make her feel horrible about herself. It wasn’t until both characters caught the attention of the prince when her step-family realized their wrongs. In Cinderella, when the prince places the slipper on Cinderella’s foot, the sisters realize that this was magnificent woman at the ball. The step-sisters see their wrongs, only when they find out who Cinderella really is, they ask her for forgiveness.
Some people act differently towards each other depending on who they’re talking to. They usually talk in a more proper manner with someone who is high in society than with someone who’s low in society. Since Cinderella’s father had recently remarried, she had to live with her step-mother and step-sisters. Cinderella did all the chores and assisted her sisters to prepare for the ball. Although she wasn’t allowed to go with her sisters, she accepted help from her Fairy Godmother to prepare to make her way there.
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.
With time, Bonnie got use to her two brothers, even to love them, but they were very different from girls. She was seven years old when her mother told her that she was pregnant once again. Bonnie showed no excitement at the news because she believed that it was just going to be another clunky brother. Imagine her joy when her mother arrived home and placed her baby sister, Laura May, in her lap. She fell madly in love!
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 Disney version is about a young girl who is raised by her stepmom because both of her parents died and is forced to be a maid and wait on her step- family’s hand and foot. She attended the ball, despite her wicked stepmother and her ugly daughters, and meets the prince, fell in love and had to leave because the clock struck midnight, which was the time all the magical things her fairy godmother gave her would turn
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.
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.
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.
This is where the stereotype of dependency and the need to get married were created. Girls, as young as 16 were getting married with a suitable match with the help of her family. Girls were taught to be respectful, nurturing, attentive, and most importantly, look their best on every occasion. In the movie Brave from Disney, Merida resists all attempts to make form her into the “normal” princess and breaks the stereotype
In my novel, “Uglies” the protagonist is Tally. Near the beginning of the story she shares her desperate wants of being a pretty, and even more so because she feels all alone without her best friend.

Fortunately she didn’t get caught The antagonists in my novel, is a group called Special Circumstances.
