Throughout the various versions of the Cinderella stories, the fundamental, optimistic message remains the same; good always triumphs over evil. According to the English **** textbook Lenses: Perspective on Literature, Cinderella can be categorized as a fundamental fairytale story. Because Cinderella is a fairytale with elements of the supernatural woven into the plot, it does not have a close connection to truth. Also, while the optimistic ending gives hope to those who seek justice, it is unfortunately rare in today’s society for evildoers to receive their due comeuppance. Cinderella’s world ends with a good person being rewarded for her endurance through hardships and evildoers are dealt the fate they deserve according to their previous cruel actions.
Wavey acts as a mother to Bunny and Sunshine, specifically Bunny. She makes the decision that Bunny must know the truth about death, rather than be spared with lies that death is simply an unending sleep, saying to Quoyle, “There is grief and loss in life. They need to understand that. They seem to think that death is just sleep” (Proulx 331). Her matter-of-fact statement “There is grief and loss in life” could also be intended for Quoyle, who himself is still holding onto Petal Bear’s death at this point.
In the novel, “Dealing with Dragons,” written by Patricia Wrede, Cimorene, the main princess, or character, left her kingdom and volunteered to work for a dragon, Kazul. She was told by many people, including her family, that she did “improper” things, considering the Medieval Time period. Cimorene was justified in ignoring the expected social norms of medieval society because she would be happier with her more adventurous and cheerful life, she would get to learn the interesting ways and life lessons about dragons, and she would have more freedom over herself, at least more than she had in her kingdom. Cimorene would enjoy a more adventurous life because, first of all, she was interested in activities that were considered “improper” and fun.

Lanval also follows her commands rather than the woman following the males’ orders. And lastly, the fairy came in on her noble steed to save Lanval, when in traditional stories, the male saves the damsel in distress. So, as you can see, the fairy has qualities of both types of women in medieval literature. In summary, the role of women seen in medieval literature is seen in a pattern throughout Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Lanval.

She is able to express herself, her thoughts and her emotions freely, which makes her an independent woman.
