Transcript of Cinderella
We have modified the "Cinderella" story, into a more gruesome, interesting tale. In our version of this story, Cinderella's stepsisters also fit the shoe. The father does not play a role in Cinderella's life, he rather lay wine sodden in bed. And the stepmother is evil, as always. The prince is a narcissistic guy, and his parents are waiting for him to marry, eagerly.
Plot summary of the
Grimm Brothers story.
Archetypes In The Story.
Cinderella plants this branch, and with the water from her tears a tree grows from the ground. In this tree there is a little white bird who grants Cinderellas every wish. One day all the daughters get a letter in the mail informing them the prince is having a three day ball to find the perfect bride. after Cinderella (with the help of her animal friends) picks ashes from lintel a couple of times to be able to go. The first night she flees from the ball, as well as the second night, except this time her shoe came off on a step. The prince found it and went to the girls house the next day to find out who fit the slipper. After each sister tried on the shoe and cut off parts of their feet, Cinderella finally tries on the shoe and it is a perfect fit. So the prince and Cinderella get married. And the stepsisters (trying to get in on Cinderellas new fortune) get their eyes picked out and live the rest of their lives blind.
The Stepmother- Cinderella's Stepmother belongs in this category because she is one of the evil beings in this tale.
The Magic Weapon-The white bird reflects this trait with how it grants Cinderella's every wish.
The Fairy Godmother applies to this archetype, she also would apply to the Magical Archetype.
Sensualist: Addicted to feeling good about their self. The two stepsisters apply to this archetype, making Cinderella do everything for them makes them feel bigger as people.
Tyrant: Must be in control at all times, this also applies to the Stepmother.
Cinderella is one of some 209 of the most famous fairy tales collected by Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), and first published in 1812. This tale has been particularly popular in all of its many forms and adaptations. The character has become an archetypal rags-to-riches figure. Many young girls/women have dreamed of becoming a modern Cinderella; and other writers have used the archetype to bring the original Cinderella to life.
Cinderella's mother dies, and her father remarries. Her stepmother, as well as her new stepsisters are all very beautiful but they have "black hearts". Cinderella goes to her mothers grave and prays and weeps there daily. One day her father sys hes going to the fair and will get each daughter somthing. Cinderellas stepsisters ask for dresses and pearls while cinderella only wants the a branch from the first tree to hit her father on his way home.
