Despite the fact that The Little Mermaid is an iconic story with memorable characters and is beloved by millions of people, it is still evident that the premise is problematic, especially when its target audience is young, impressionable children (primarily females) who are themselves still trying to form their own identities. Her change from mermaid to human denotes a huge shift in who she is as a character, as she is literally being changed from one being to another, and in doing so she must do away with everything that made her who she was before she met the prince: a mermaid, a princess, a daughter, a sister, a beautiful singer, and more. This may have been considered collateral damage by both Andersen and Disney, but it does not excuse the reality of the impact of the message the story promotes. In the Disney film, Ariel considers what the cost of being human would be as she negotiates with the sea witch, "If I become a human, that means I 'll never be with my father or sisters again" (Clements and Musker), to which the Sea-Witch Ursula replies, "That 's right... But--you 'll have your man.

Prince Eric, of course, loves this version of Ariel. She then goes on to trade her voice with the evil sea-witch in exchange for human legs.

She proves to be the only exception to Bronte’s stereotype of the inverse relationship to beauty and personality.

This goal described by Bronte is one that the women in the novel strive for, but will never accomplish.

So in conclusion, this Essay has shown how the characters in “A Rose for Emily” and “the Landlady”, both characters use poison, both kill for passion, and both live with their victims’ corpses. In difference; they lived in different places, they did different things to their victims’ corpses, and they wanted a different number of men. Some themes of these two stories are about death, another may be craziness, and finally necrophilia. In my opinion, loneliness has caused these women to long for companionship, willing to do anything for love,
