George Eliot's Silas Marner as a Fairy Tale In the novel Silas Marner by George Elliot, there are realistic and fairytale characters. It always ends in a happy ending. Fairytales always represent good over evil and have a timeless quality and a universal quality. Moreover they contain magic and it is as if in the story that Silas's transformation seems magical.

There are three types of fairy tales that influenced my writing, and they came in different forms as well. They came in movies, plays and simple storybooks. Different people created them, and they all gave me different reasons to like fairy tales and appreciate them to their core. Disney, Shakespeare and the Grimm’s brothers created different forms of fairy tales and I’ve read and watched many of them. They all contained good and bad people, and at the core of each and every one was a sense of happiness, even though some of them were utterly tragic and disheartening.
With the utilization of Valar, Tolkien creates a fantasy that departs from the Primary World; however, there still lies a concept of dualism ¡V the existence of conflicting forces of good and evil. In ¡§On Fairy Stories,¡¨ Tolkien states that ¡§fantasy, of course, starts with an advantage: arresting strangeness¡¨ (139). Following this notion, The Silmarillion begins with themes of music sung in unison and harmony by the Valar, also known as the gods (3). This signifies the peace and good of the fantasy world created by Tolkien; this element of good in the Secondary World is derived from the real world. However, it is apparent that peace and good are not omnipresent in reality.
Fairy Tales have enchanted people for generations. These stories have long been sources of entertainment and moral education, weaving together elements of fantasy with values. Today, fairy tales are often dismissed as children’s stories; however they have permeated popular culture. There are countless versions of these classic tales, with movies, books, and songs recounting the ever so familiar tales as well as colloquial phrases alluding to them. However, some critics argue that beneath the innocent and whimsical demeanor of fairy tales, lie the suppressive values of the dominant culture.

Their hope comes from these characters that help them on their paths for Cinderella it was her fairy godmother who created magic and for Tam it was a Buddha who hinted her to create magic reincarnation.
This is the story of what she found. Before you can understand what it is exactly that Belle found, you must know her preconceived presumptions about fairy tales. Now as we all know, a fairy tale is a story that includes many magical and wonderful elements that come together to tell about a hero’s adventure. They often begin with the words “Once upon a time” and end with “happily ever after”. Always mystical and enchanting, they draw you in and make you sympathize with one of the characters.
Despite the differences, they all have one thing in common: good will overcome evil. The two variations of the Cinderella story contain somewhat similar moral guidance as the original but have different stories from what people usually expect. Each of them touches on different issues such as spiritual, magic, miracle and contain outcomes based on the culture and beliefs of its respective society. However, whatever version it might be, the story of Cinderella will continue to be an entertaining fairy tale which will benefit the generations to come.
Fairy Tales As a son to a mother who is in love with fairy tales, I know a little about them. Everyone has heard of the common stories such as Cinderella and Hansel & Gretel.

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream the interference of the fairies problems intertwines with the plot of that of the majority of the characters. Their different roles in the story play out the... ... middle of paper ... ...and A Midsummer Night’s Dream both combine magic and mystery within their plots.

One version will always be better than another, but no matter what version it might be the story will be told. There are many things one has learned from the experience, although the twelve versions of Cinderella are similar to each other but yet in some way they are different, which make it unique.

No matter what it is I’ve learn that Cinderella will be Cinderella regardless of the different author, different time or different title.
