The Prince in, “The Little Glass Slipper”, is only able to recognize Cinderella when she is in her aristocratic outfit, showing that material possessions are the key to the higher social classes. The Prince during the beginning of the ball sprints out to this “new princess” with such beauties leading to a sweep of silence over the ballroom as she walked in, leading to the the desisting of dancing and “violins [ceasing] to play” due to the fact that everyones eyes became fixated on the “unknown new-comer” (3). Perrault has the Prince at first sight see this aristocratic Princess, but underneath she has more to hide. An average man would think that he would be able to remember the “finest princess ever seen with with mortal eyes” (4), but Cinderella 's material possessions have him tricked. On top Cinderella is a beautiful princess, but underneath all of her material possessions lie her actual proletariat self.
We can see this through the costumes of the characters, the little girl is wears a vintage nightgown that was worn in the olden days. The maid is also seen to be wearing maids clothing that was from the 19th century. The setting of the house is gloomy and dark and we can tell by the furniture of the old mansion that it was set in the 19th century the furniture of the house is nothing like what we have it more expensive and vintage. The dialogue between the little girl and maid, we can perceive that they speak in a very formal way and the tone is very old English. The behaviour of the maid telling of the little girl off and threatening to box her ears off if she didn’t behave is not a disciple that’s used in the 21th century.
Characterization “She's got no goo on her face, her hair's not sprayed, her nightgown like an old prairie dress. She takes a deep breath through her nose and I see it. I see the white-trash girl she was ten years ago. She was strong. She didn't take no shit from nobody.” pg.
From the shape of her hair to her brass leggings and gauntlets, she is dressed in a warrior gear. Moreover, with the crimson spot on her cheek, which reminds one of blood, she succeeds in reminding the reader of not just a warrior, but a savage and deadly creature. Her mysterious appearance is completed by the “bizarre things, charms, gifts of witch-men” and other jewelry that make sounds and reflect light. This air of mystery makes her more complicated and frightful without losing the beauty due to the element of unknown features in the eyes of Europeans, and therefore another aspect of this woman’s metaphorical similarity to the lands they are in. Those lands that they have infiltrated are also both admirable and
She uses these dolls to represent women, “ … the porcelain of the hands and face was always translucent; it had an ivory tint to it that formed a great contrast with the curled whiteness of the bisque faces”(7). These dolls are a clone of women, perfect skin, perfect tonedness, just appealing to the eyes. Later on in the story the young doctor begins selling the doll piece by piece. In my opinion is his wife, he is taking her apart, piece by piece. The aunt made all these dolls and gave each to her kids, each year when they grow up.
The walls were red and orange with paisley patterns painted on the wall. On the wall above us was a large painting of a topless purple lady with six arms and a necklace made of skulls to cover part of her chest, which my boyfriend's 9 year old daughter had a lot of questions about. I learned that the lady in the painting is supposed to be Kali, a Hindu goddess. There was another picture across the room on a person with blue skin sticking their tongue out which I learned was another picture of Kali. The table had a glass top that was covering a beautiful photo collage of Indian people dressed in traditional indian clothing, photos of the Taj Mahal, and also pictures of elephants and camels decorated in bright beautiful
In addition, people who do not have kids will appreciate the loads of memorabilia along the walls from past sports teams, as well as some pictures of old Greek buildings and famous landscapes of Greece. As for how the restaurant was laid out, it was obvious the two brothers wanted to jam pack as many people as they could into the space they had. There were plenty of tables in the open area of the room. Booths lined the side walls and a row of booths running down the middle of the restaurant; thus, only leaving two or three feet in between the tables and booths for people to walk. The salad bar is towards the front of the restaurant, but still in the middle of all the commotion.
It was one great hall divided by five feet blackboards on wheels that would squeak at the slightest touch. The long, three feet high, wooden, hollowed out desks needed sanding down to smooth out the rough surface, and it could hold up to three students. We sat in alphabetical order - I sat in the middle of the room - and no one dares ask to be relocated because it was not permitted. The teacher started by calling roll, and after naming thirty-three children, she set the agenda for the day. First, we would focus on Agriculture, then Arithmetic, followed by our first recess, and when we got back from recess, she promised us a field trip.
