There she disobeys her mother's instructions, and becomes "the poor child." In the moral, these "pretty, nicely brought-up young ladies" turn "foolish" upon talking to strangers. As "elegant" as they were once considered, it is a child's own fault if she leans to far to the irrational id. Furthermore, Freud dramatically insinuates that this struggle can only end in death, which is the exact fate of Little Red Riding Hood.
She is naïve and does not realize that the wolf is trying to trick her so that he can eat her. She is easily distracted by the flowers, nuts, and butterflies that she finds along the path he sends her on. When she gets to her grandmother?s house, although she feels that something is wrong, she enters anyway. Little Red strips off her clothes and gets into the bed with the wolf, still disguised as her grandmother.

The “Little Red Riding Hood” narratives described by Maria Tatar are told in similar yet different ways. For instance, each narrative has a sexual tendency of the wolf trying to get Red Riding Hood to sleep in bed with them. Each narrative has a moral story of paying the consequence of talking to a stranger. However, the narratives differ because a few of the stories involved Red Riding Hood’s character knowing the wolf. The major difference with each narrative is the outcome of when Red Riding Hood arrives at her grandmother’s house.
In the end, both Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf are guilty of giving into their Id. The moral of the story warns the reader that there are wolves in the real world that are just like the wolf in the story. These “wolves” are just preying on young, impressionable young girls in order to fulfill their sexual desires. These little girls are not just victims though. They are also able to act on their desires and be bad little girls.
Poetry The Wolf, I knew, would lead me deep into the woods Sixteen is the legal age of consent, highlighting the fact that although the narrator may appear to be very sexual she is still a child, an innocence which is then blemished by the wolf offering her a drink. This is a metaphor for men as it is an old seduction tactic highlighting
During the interaction between the young girls and the wolf, the young girls had a choice of either being naïve and falling into submission or overcoming the suppressor and showing dominance. This idea of deception and dominance are furthermore shown through the character of the wolf who tries to deceive and dominate the young girls in any way necessary. In all three tales, the wolf is seen as deceitful and conniving because it appeals to the primitive emotions of women in order to make the women naively fall for its trap. In the Grimms' "Little Red Cap", the wolf convinced Little Red Cap that she should look around instead of going straight to her grandmother's house when it said "Little Red Cap, just look at the beautiful flowers that are growing all around you! Why don't you look
Open the door.” The wolf depicts repulsive characteristics, as he not only deceives a Little Red Cap into abandoning the route but also imitates her, thus obtaining passage into the Grandmother’s home. Observing Little Red Cap as a manifestation of the reader, then one could morph the form of the wolf into the design of anything that the reader contemplates as the distant other. Furthermore, not only is the reader ascertained to be small but also a fool, who is hoodwinked into one’s own demise. Little Red Cap provides away knowledge that places both herself and family members’ lives in peril, thus portraying the mental deficiency of the reader in relation to the superior wolf. Also, glancing towards the simplistic symbolism of the wolf knocking at the door, one could deduct that the wolf is emblematic of the Jewish population
Only Henry and two dogs are left; he makes a fire with leaves and scattered branches, trying to drive away the wolves. They draw in close and he is almost eaten, saved only by a company of men who were traveling nearby. The wolves are in the midst of a starvation. They continue on running and hunting, lead by several wolves alongside the she-wolf, and when they finally find food the pack starts to split up. The she-wolf mates with one of the wolves and has a litter of pups inside an abandoned cave.
Symbolism In the novel When the Legends Die and in the film Dances with Wolves symbolism is very important. Throughout both of them the used symbols are very similar but have very different meanings. In the movie, Dances with Wolves the wolf, Two Socks, and the horse, Cisco, are animal symbols, like the bear in When the Legends Die. Two Socks and Cisco are the main two symbols in Dances with Wolves. Two Socks, is the wolf that befriends John Dunbar symbolizing the Sioux Indians who start trying to also befriend John.

With extensive research on both ends, both Leslie and the Dutchers are successful in proving that the human race is to blame for the decline in wolves, as they are exterminating the wolf population by poisoning, trapping, and hunting to protect their livestock. Unfortunately this is a win-lose situation for hunters, livestock owners and nature, as they are protecting their animals while unbalancing their ecosystem slowly, but surely. As inevitable as it seems, if and when wolves become cleared of the misconceptions towards them, it will be too late…and that’s heartbreaking. Works Cited Leslie, Robert Franklin.
