Psychoanalytically speaking, the witch’s inner desires are a mystery because so little is known about her. One could speculate that maybe she wants the magical slippers because they belonged to her sister and she wants something of hers to remember her
She even argues with Oberon on India’s behalf. She says (Act 1, Scene 1). Will of the wisp was another fairy punishment. The man who lost his way on the road thought to be astray by the will of the wisp. “Fairies often mislead wanderers and sometimes strike them or wound them with fairy weapons” (Green 67) Fairies were a source of supernatural power since they have an ability to foresee the future so many people, especially magicians of the Elizabethan times “contained instruction for conjuring them up in order to learn a variety of occult secrets” (Thomas 609).
The one way he could shatter the spell was to learn to love another and obtain her love in return before the last petal from the enchanted rose fell, which blossomed on his twenty-first birthday.

Also in aschenputtle and Yeh-Shen she had gold shoes in the Algonquin story she doesn’t have shoes at all. Another example is that some dads were dead and some dads were alive.

“The Landlady” by Roald Dahl is a story of great deception , ignorance and appearance vs. reality infused in great writing. The story incorporates many themes and ideas that the author purposely included. The story is about a young boy who was visiting England but when he get there and settles into a bed and breakfast, he is in for a wild surprise. One of the themes the story proposes is deception. The passage states, “ He went right up and peered through the glass into the room, and the first thing he saw was a bright fire burning in the hearth.
One night, a hideous old hag came to his door and offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold of the night. Laughing in her face he refused. Transforming before his eyes, she turned in to the most beautiful enchantress, showing him that beauty comes from within. With this, she turned the handsome prince into a hideous beast to learn his lesson. She also transformed all of his servants into enchanted objects.
While the door was open to the narrator he also said, “And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, ‘Lenore?’ / This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, ‘Lenore!’ / Merely this and nothing more” (28-30). I feel this proves that there is a presence of evil lurking and taunting the narrator’s insanity.

The word, Plutonian, is an allusion to the Roman god of the underworld. The assumption of this type of dark, evil is felt with the bird’s presence, especially in the way the raven brings the thought of Lenore, loneliness, evil, and emotion.
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.
Therefore, if Cinderella never married the Prince, if she was never kind, then Cinderella would truly be a creature of toil and ash. Not the creature that will rise again in rebirth, but the kind with two clipped wings, coated in a charcoaled blanket of
