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 Once upon a time there lived an unhappy young girl. Her mother was dead and her father had married a widow with two daughters. Her stepmother didn't like her one little bit. All her kind thoughts and loving touches were for her own daughters. Nothing was too good for them - dresses, shoes, delicious food, soft beds, and every home comfort.
Infuriated as she is, she leaves Higgins behind, just like Nora left her husband. Not to mention that Higgins’ mother even made a direct link to Ibsen’s work, “You certainly are a pretty pair of babies, playing with your live doll.” Yet again, this could be seen as a simile of the position of women in the male-dominated society. Women in the Edwardian era were indeed slaves to their marriage, having little to no voice in any decision whatsoever. Mentioning that she was in fact a doll, much alike Nora’s situation, was an eye-opener for the upper-class audience that Pygmalion was shown towards. Higgins was not only forcing societies’ wishes on her, he also was “dressing Eliza”, just like a
Forestier you might know why my husband and I are here.” Mathilde said courageously, “the diamond necklace that you lent me the night of the reception, i lost it and we never found it.” she continued, “ It took my husband and I ten years to repay the debt that the necklace caused us, our lives were horrible, we wore the same clothes, barely have any things in our apartment, and sometimes we only eat one meal a day. “ Mathilde started to cry and couldn 't continue what she was saying so her husband picked up where she left off “All we 're asking is that you give us back the necklace so that we can sell it and get our money back.” he said, “ we want the last years of our life to be grand since we wasted the last ten paying
Cinderella was loved by all her animals especially the mice, Gus and Jaq. Her step-sisters were very different from her. They were materialistic and did not like Cinderella. As time passed, Cinderella’s Father also passed away. At that moment, Lady Tremaine began to portray her hatred and jealousy for Cinderella’s beauty.
In “The story of an hour”: (1) When Mrs.Mallard heard the news of Mr.Mallard’s death from Josephine, she “did not hear the story as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance”. She burst into passionate weeping, wildly, just like “a storm”; after this, “she went away to her room alone and would have no one follow her.” (Here used one literary element - Symbolism. Kate used the feature of violent storm to describe Mrs.Mallard’s wild sadness in that moment and implied the sadness would fade away in a while, just like the storm. ) From
If you heard about the Cinderella story and read George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion”, you would know that both stories are similar in numerous ways but also different too. In Shaw’s Pygmalion which was taken place in London , the main character “Eliza” portrays Cinderella. Cinderella who lived in France, was a girl who was underappreciated and treated horribly by her stepmother and siblings. Both girls was poor in the beginning but the outcome made them rich Some ways that we can compare Eliza’s life to Cinderella’s are, not knowing anything about their real mother and the lack of morals the parental figure has, that both girls were poor and from the underclass who blossomed, they both had a fairy god-person as their mentor, they got out of the social nuisance they lived in, the social criticism and lastly both Eliza and Cinderella was dependent. Eliza’s and Cinderella’s mother had died when they both was really young, but in Cinderella’s case her father remarried and eventually died and was left with her step mother and step sisters and Eliza’s father abandoned her and only checks on her when he needs money.
Nanny never got married because she was worried that Leafy would be trampled upon like she was. But, she still lost her child after living to see her be trampled upon the same way she was. She raised another child, her granddaughter, Janie. And, now, Janie is entering the same remorseless territory, where she 's liable to be trampled upon, at any time,
Not only did I lose a wonderful mother, my children never got to have a true grandmother as she passed before they were born. What makes this blow particularly hard, is that for some reason on my husband’s side, his mother never had a relationship with our kids either - even though the other cousins practically live at her house. Even worse, is the fact my mother was overbearing with love and I can’t imagine how different life would be for my kids with her in it. I get jealous at times of people that still have their mothers. At 19 years old, my mother and I were just entering a new era of our relationship.
The grudge faded away after my grandma told me about her youth. The daughter of a hard-working and thrifty peasant, my grandma lived a peaceful life until her father and eldest brother died when she was ten. She had no money to continue school, and her marriage with my grandfather was strongly opposed by my grandfather’s eminent family of intellectuals due to her humble upbringing, not to mention that she gave birth to three girls and not a single boy at a time when a mother’s status was determined almost entirely by her son(s). I started to see how my grandma had become stubborn and extremely assertive just to survive and advocate for herself and her family against all odds. Since then, every time I disagreed with my grandma, instead
