In his painting, Fuseli sought to capture arguably the most comedic moment in the play, which occurs when Titania awakens and falls in love with the donkey-headed Bottom. He does not simply represent the scene as Shakespeare portrays it in his words; instead, Fuseli interprets it, sometimes taking the figurative and making it literal and other times exaggerating Shakespeare’s portrayal of the beautiful Titania falling for the ludicrous Nick
In the play, Bottom and Robin seems to be in control. In Act / Scene 1, Robin sets off to find Titania so he can apply the flower’s essence to her eyes. He comes across Bottom and the tradesmen rehearsing the play: “What hempen homespuns have we got swagg’ring here so near the cradle of the Fairy Queen?” (3.1.76-77). He proceeds to transform Bottom’s head to of a donkey’s, making it look like he’s in control. Another example is in Act 4/ Scene 1, Bottom receives service from four fairies and he gets to tell them what to do: “Get your weapons in your hand and kill me a red-hipped humble-bee.../ Scratch my head Peaseblossom” (4.1.7-12).
He openly confesses that he hopes that he says it quickly enough so maybe the girls would hear him. He bluntly tells us maybe the girls will stop and watch their unsuspected hero (Updike 134). It seems as if Sammy wants this incident to be a like a “fairy tale.” In this case, Sammy plays the part of the brave hero; the girls are the helpless princesses that are waiting to be saved by their true love and hero. And, of course, Lengel is the evil villain. In most fairy tales, the hero is trying to save the princess from the evil villain.
Atwood began the story as the female lead being beautiful, but changed her to being average looking, and changes the stereotypical evil stepmother to an evil stepfather. On the contrary, Perrault follows the basic generic conventions of fairy tales by having the prince marry the beautiful princess and writes the main antagonists as two older women. Perrault uses his story to frame the prince as the hero who saves the sleeping princess and her kingdom, and later saves his family from his evil cannibalistic mother. Perrault’s story has more of a magical aspect than Atwood’s since he includes fairies and curses in his story. Perrault’s story offers an escape from the trials and
Even though Cinderella could have refused because she is Queen, she was loyal to her family and climbed the tree to get the nuts. The step mother shook the tree back and forth, “What are you doing?” asked Cinderella, and the step mom replied, “I am only trying to scare away the ants that might bite you.” Cinderella then fell from the tree swaying back and forth, and Cinderella died. Cinderella was reborn a tree and later the tree grew a beautiful fruit. One day the fruit fell into an older woman’s bag as she was passing the tree and later after removing the fruit from the bag Cinderella reappeared from the fruit and became Queen after all. In the French version Cinderella lost her glass slipper at the ball.
On top of that, another unique type of transition is also used well to show events occurring at the same time but in two different locations. A good example of a scene is when Dorothy and her followers are at the poppy field. After the Cowardly Lion joins the group, the scene zooms out to the Wicked Witch’s crystal ball, and fades away. The Wicked Witch then looks at the poppy field, and the scene switches, zooming into the crystal and opening up to show the group travelling again. After Dorothy falls asleep in the field, an image of the Good Witch appears over the scene, as she casts her spell.
