William Goldman's The Princess Bride - In the story “The Princess Bride” we read of action and adventure, and if you have watched the movie you have a very romantic view of the tale. Before I read the book that was my view, which after reading the book, I found to be incomplete. Fortunately, I have read the book and my view of this adventure has changed from a less romantic one to a more realist thought. I believe that what William Goldman was trying to tell us, in his book version of the story, is that life is made up of reality, sprinkled with what I would call romanticism of the realist....   [tags: The Princess Bride]

The Princess and the Pea by Hans Andersen - The Real Her While reading the story ‘The Princess and the Pea’, Hana does a great job in using irony and confusion to its readers. The story of “Prince” follows an imagination to marry not only a princess, but a real princess. There were enough princesses, but no where close to the one he wanted. The author does a good job to define the plot and breaking it down to real life relationships. To me this is like a beloved story tale. The author creates a very delusional story line with the prince having problems finding a wife....   [tags: princess, fairy tale, royal]

Archetypally, she is a variant on the Old Man, though she bears the undeniable touch of the supernatural as seen in common folklore - at times she is otherworldly and some of her actions and abilities are of the sort frequently associated with witches....   [tags: MacDonald Princess Goblin Essays]

Religious Imagery in C.S.

The earliest children's books were little more than religious devotionals or bible stories rewritten with the express enjoyment of children in mind. As children's literature progressed, however, it began to move away from religious instruction and into works that focused more on story. This doesn't mean that the two became mutually exclusive as to this day many works that are still enormously popular with children are rife with religious allegory without sacrificing story....   [tags: Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe, The Princess and ] 935 words
