The reader connects with the feelings of sorrow and freedom that Hop-Frog feels, yet this was not the full intention for the way Poe wrote the story. Poe felt that with the rise of these abolitionist tales that the writers painted slaves as innocent people that were incapable of being as cruel as their owners. Poe saw through the slave’s tales, and therefore he tricks his own readers into believing Hop-Frog and yanking away that connection. Hop-Frog is fueled with rage due to his treatment, and it seems that after he was forced to drink the wine and he saw Tripetta get abused he needed to get revenge. Hop-Frog acts through his emotions, and he manages to keep calm until he sees the only companion he has get abused.

Sexton does not refer to the Grimm brothers in her poem, for she considers this re-telling her own creation, uniquely by using irony to her advantage. As an audience we can relate to how and why Sexton takes much from the original versions, but we find that her interpretation brings a different approach. Sexton felt the original versions held no light to reality, so she changed the shallow premise of the original Cinderella bringing all the unrealistic morals in the story to the surface. The author's style, tone, and language helps to convey her sarcastic approach and differentiate between gritty reality and the ideal of fairy tale endings. As the poem begins, Sexton starts with how the Prince and Cinderella are living happily ever after, but compromising the original naïve direction, she gives the poem a modern context bringing the reader back to reality.

Delia, a flower in a rough of weeds. That is what I got from this story in one sentence, although knowing my grammar possibly not. Hurston’s tale of a shattered woman, gives us a glimpse into what was possibly the life of women at that time. There were many convictions against men in the story, although it may have been unintentional, not to say she was a hard-core feminist there were episodes of male remorse. Narrator, this was a third person account, thus leaving much to the imagination.
