Society is an ever evolving element of life, and as society has changed over the years, so has works by authors and directors. As authors and directors gain influence from inspiring sources, they are also gaining influences from the surrounding culture and the time period that they are living in. This may even be subconsciously. New historicism is the theory that explains this and specifically focuses on just how the time period of a work changes and shows how an author's experiences come to life through a work. In Walt Disney’s, Cinderella, the time period glamorizes Cinderella’s journey to happiness while the Grimm Brothers version connects more with reality, teaching that media evolves to what society wants to see.

This is my story. Everyone just assumes that I tried to kill Snow White because of envy and jealous well I was both of there but the not why I tried to kill her. I never really wanted to hurt anyone, that was never my intention until she made it so difficult so I had to take extreme measures.

Fairytales have majorly altered throughout history in a variety of disturbing ways. Grimm’s fairytales were known as gruesome parables that spoke of harsh realities and were told to people of all ages. Disney is identified by their hopeful and imaginary stories aimed at the audience of children. The reasoning behind this stark contrast of fairy tales is for numerous diverse explanations.
The need for power in Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm’s “Snow White” is evident in the evil stepmother’s actions. Upon looking at herself in the mirror every day she asks: “‘Mirror, Mirror, here I stand. Who is the fairest in the land?’” (148). Being accustomed to the mirror telling her that she is in fact the fairest in the land, she is in a state of dismay to find out, for the first time, it is her step daughter who is more fair than her. This leads the evil stepmother into a wild pursuit for power, where she is willing to kill her stepdaughter in order to once again be the “fairest” and most powerful, it is here that food comes in to play. Cannibalism is of importance in “Snow White” as it shows the evil stepmothers power in one of its most significant ways, proving she has complete supremacy over the girl: “The cook was ordered to salt and stew them, and the godless woman ate them, thinking she was eating Snow White’s lungs and liver” (148).
