Little Red Riding Hood Archetypes

155 Words1 Page
Hi Vivian, I also enjoyed the fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” when I was a child over the other fairy tales. It is definitely one of the most prominent fairy tales and I never really looked at the fairy tale in how it displays archetypes. Little Red Riding Hood is definitely an innocent like you mentioned, she didn’t do anything wrong to harm anyone, even being too innocent to view the wolf as being a bad creature. I agree with most archetypes you grouped the characters in, such as the wolf being the villain, but I cannot really find the justification for Little Red Riding Hood’s mother being a good person. The fact that she sent her daughter out alone to visit her grandmother’s house is enough to tell me that she isn’t a good person.
