In this poem a man tells of how he is viewed as a villain for things he did; even though, like poseidon, he was doing them for a greater good.

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).

Disney inspired fairy tales have a certain universality, everything is romanticized and there usually is an evil antagonist making situations worse. In Disney’s Enchanted, Giselle the protagonist is the typical gender stereotyped fairy tale princess. She is a cartoon character in a fictitious place called Andalasia, who later turns into a real woman in New York City after getting pushed into a magic well. This happened because Giselle’s prince’s evil step mother Narissa thought Giselle is marrying the prince to get Narissa dethroned. Similarly, in Sleeping Beauty, Aurora a passive, beautiful princess is cursed to fall into a deep slumber when she is pricked by the spinning needle.

She wakes up Prince Charming by reading him a story of the past to remind him of what happened. I personally like the Snow White that killed the queen at the end. It was the story from the “Twisted Fairy Tales.” I think it is awesome that she was poisoned then went on to kill her step mother because she was trying to kill her throughout the entire story.

Belle 's character and background changed a bit too. In the Disney Movie, Belle was a book-nerd, whom people thought of as crazy for loving books, and also seems to be an only daughter.
