Spitz quotes directly from another author, Marina Warner, stating how fairy tales are “ stories that try to find the truth and give us glimpses of greater things…this is the principle that underlies their growing presence… “ (Paragraph 2). In Cinderella, the Grimms’ specifically use fairy tale conventions to give audiences the ‘glimpses of greater things’. Every single convention was utilized to draw back to the idea that one must disregard the frivolous forces of life and live their most sincere self, essentially allowing for audiences to use Cinderella’s story as a baseline of comparison towards their own lives. Spitz continues to remark that “An educated adult will listen with a gnawing deep-down feeling that the story merits attention and bears a species of uncanny truth” (Paragraph 8). If an educated adult were to read an article that stated their lifestyles were outright incorrect and they must disregard vanity and act more genuine, they would feel shocked and feel less inclined to listen.

What is more, the fairytale is being used as a source and a vehicle of powerful self-mirroring images affirming the existing value system, and thus lulling audiences into passivity and compliance.” This point proves that the original thought of harsh realities needing to be exposed in story telling has converted to just being a profitable way to tell simple-minded children’s
