Her poems take a look into a more personal, often feminist side of things. Often found in her poems are topics like depression, turmoil, and even death. Cinderella, as told by Sexton, involves all three of these things. Disney’s version, on the other hand, modernizes the original Grimms’ tale and turns it into a romantic, charming fairy tale. Anne Sexton’s poem of “Cinderella” begins with several scenarios about people who go from being unfortunate and poor to being extremely lucky and wealthy later in their lives.
While Cinderella is very obedient, Jane is rebellious. This portrays Bronte’s different take on what makes a character unique and not just another Cinderella. Another correspondence between the two stories is the relationship patterns between the hero and heroine. The typical Cinder...
This inclusion allows the initial platform of the genre to be put into motion because each included character plays a specific purpose in pushing Ella to her goal: marrying the prince. For example, the fairy god mother gives her the gift of obedience, which aids her in domestic duties but also in her journey to the castle throughout the plot. Her step siblings bully and punish her, allowing Ella to develop an attitude having nothing to do with arrogance. This is essential because Cinderella cannot be someone who is not sincere. She must be deserving of her good fortune.
Many of the original oral-tradition fairy tales were preserved by Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm in written form. Though undoubtedly changed somewhat, the Grimm fairy tales are probably the most accurate versions of these tales in existence today. In peasants' fairy tales, the heroes and heroines were usually brave, intelligent, and hard working people. For example, in the Grimm story entitled "Ashputtle," which is a version of Cinderella, the heroine uses skillful planning and quick thinking to outwit the prince and her stepsisters. But as social attitudes changed, so did the Cinderella story.
The idea that wanting to be all that is “Princess” can lead to false expectations, equates to what Orenstein says is a “preoccupation with body and beauty” and what Twenge said will lead to narcissism and entitlement (327). Think of girls who suffer from anorexia in an effort to be what they see up on the billboards. However, it is always easier to find blame with outside sources like Disney than to focus within, although, there are extenuating circumstances to every example. If mom finds that her little girl needs the “Cinderella” accessories to fix low self-worth problems, then the problem probably stems from issues within her peer group or her home life. If this is so, how can a person decide which is a cause and which is an effect?
As many of us know, our world today is not short of sarcasm. Many times sarcasm can be funny but other times it can cause harm. But in Anne Sexton’s poem, she uses sarcasm to throw her audience back to actuality, even a midst a fairytale element. In Anne Sexton’s poem, Cinderella she uses sarcasm and a basis of the true tale to make what many would call a “mockery” of the original Grimm Tale. 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.
Regardless of how many versions of Cinderella there might be the story will be about a girl with a stepfamily who is evil and the girl will find her way to the ball and become one of the most prettiest girl, and soon enough the prince will come sweep her off her feet, which will soon become her life as she always wish for. Also, despite the time period it might be created or the title might be different the story will be connected to the original piece of Cinderella. There are similarities and differences in everything in life but the way we present it, is what it make it unique such as Cinderella story will be the Cinderella story but when one present it differently and it is single out from all the others then that is what it’s going to be famous for.
