“Fitcher’s Bird” differs to “Bluebeard” in several ways, the bride does not willingly marry the sorcerer but is taken captive. The bride also shows stronger characteristics as she uses her intelligence and cunning to disobey the sorcerer and escape from his house. She is able to save herself and her two sisters from a Bluebeard-like character (Grimm & Grimm, 1812a). The bride as a captive can lead the audience to interpret her circumstances in a different way. Far from being a classified as a princess in Propp’s model, the bride transforms from being a victim to the hero of her own story.
Throughout the tale, the repetitive words of an outcast, different and ugly are indicated and this is where it leaves children to worry if they will be accepted in certain groups and/or if they are liked. Unfortunately, this fairy tale only portrays the happy ending at the very end when the animals start to love the swan for who he is but then again the swan does not know how to control all the publicity rather he begins to love himself even more. Declaring that this challenged element in The Ugly Duckling represents a moral message that what you desire in life is what you must continue to love and find happiness within yourself because no one truly ever will but
The witches are talking in iambic pentameter, a writing style used by Shakespeare, which makes their words sound like a rhyming chant. The quick transition into the casting of a spell shows that the witches only truly care about Macbeth, not petty revenge against a minor character. The audience can then forget about the captain of “The Tiger” because he will most likely not play a future role.The idea that the captain is unimportant can help the audience focus on the main character, Macbeth, and what is happening to him. However, Shakespeare’s inclusion of the captain of “The Tiger” helps characterize the witches in many ways. For example, part of their characterization occurs in Act One, when the three witches are talking about who they have recently tormented.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation.

Fern uses the power of language to both resist the normative power and destroy inadequacy when she persuades her father to not kill a runty piglet who was just born, and again when she gives Wilbur his name. Fern is constructed first as a strong female character who resists the norms of her society, however, after saving and mothering Wilbur she begins to conform to norms such as gaining an interest in boys, which contradicts her earlier characterization, and now characterizes her as a motherly, feminine figure. Charlotte who also saves Wilbur’s life through the power of language resists the norms of killing animals for food and destroys Wilbur’s inadequacy. Charlotte is characterized as a selfless motherly figure because she nobly works hard to destroy Wilbur’s inadequacy and succeeds but gets no recognition. However, Wilbur is the complete opposite of Charlotte.
When she got the news she went to his mother’s house, and kept her promise to him to take care of her.

A disembodied whisper has warned her of a curse if she were to look outside, so the woman views the world only by the shadows of a mystic mirror. One can easily relate the disembodied whisper to the disapproval and restrictions society places on women, both in the Victorian era and present-day. This indirect access reiterates the alleged “danger” of the female gaze by describing the “supernatural” power of lustful eyes. Although the Lady’s laborious weaving empowers and yet simultaneously enslaves her, passivity manages to keep her safe. Until at last her desire overcomes, and the Lady of Shalott “oversteps her boundary.” The curse falls upon her faster than her genuine isolation can be broken.
In the original work, there is too much unnecessary cruel and unusual punishment, whereas in the Disney fairy tale, the story gives hope for a happily ever after. The Brothers Grimm folk tales, typically known for their abundance of violence and sexual content, are completely opposite of the politically correct, picture perfect productions that Walt Disney is often associated with. The two versions of the tale, although generally the same concept, make the reader see the story in two completely different lights. For example, in the original tale, the two step sisters are told by their mother cut off a toe and part of their heel so that the glass slipper will fit with the incentive that “when [they] are queen [they] will no longer have to go on foot” (Grimm and Grimm), and they do it. Disney, realizing the obscenity of the scene, omits these small
