The other factor that makes people to admit the princess posture with cruel objective. There seems another side of the princess’s behavior that makes her halfway tend toward her father mindset and the cruel justice system. The author also claims, “had it not been for the moiety of barbarism in her nature, it is probable that lady would not have been there; but her intense fervid soul would not allow her to be absent on an occasion in which she was so terribly interested.” (3) The princess may want to enjoy the barbaric event in the arena as her nature of semi-barbaric, or she attends the “trial” to witness a tiger kill her lover. An emotional woman would be scared of barbaric spectacle, especially which is a ferocious execution that her lover is a victim. Nevertheless, this event looks properly what the semi-barbaric princess desires: her lover will be punished, and he will not allow to marry the lady whom the princess contempt.
Instead, jealousy takes over and the door that opens will emerge a tiger because she will go berserk to see her man happy with another woman, and will prefer to have him eaten by a tiger and await the princess herself on a heavenly earth. According to Frank R. Stockton, he states, “How in her grievous reveries has she gnashed her teeth and torn her hair, when she saw his start of rapturous delight as he opened the door of the lady” (150). Obviously, this describes her frenzied actions as the lovely damsel appears at the door on the right. If she leads her lover to the door with the damsel behind it, this princess will be green with envy to see him happily marrie...
He was so upset and had his mind set on punishing the lover that he didn’t take his own daughters feelings into consideration. The king’s objection towards his daughter and her lover’s relationship results in two different alternatives given to the lover for the consequences of his actions: If he opened the one there came out of it a hungry tiger the fiercest and most cruel that could be procured, which immediately sprang upon him and tore him to ... ... middle of paper ... ...tle different. The princess would be better off to let him live and marry this woman, so she could still see him. Despite the fact that he will be married to the young maiden, it does not portend that he is going to fall in love with her. The young lover may still have feelings for the princess but he cannot do anything about it.
The princess will lead the gentleman towards the door with the maiden behind it because it is highly unethical to kill a man because she will have to see them together. Human morality plays a large role in her decision to do this. The pain she experiences from seeing her lover with her enemy will fade. On the other hand, the pain she would experience from seeing him die in front of her eyes would linger on and on. Furthermore the pain of the reflection of that decision to kill him would bring her much regret.
Death is a nebulous, inescapable force that everyone must confront and learn to deal with in some way. In The Tiger’s Wife, Death is everywhere, in the near constant fighting and dangerous remainders of several wars. For “The Tiger’s Bride”, however, Death remains just outside the scope of the story, brushing along the edges of our awareness but never put plainly before us like the many corpses of Obreht’s novel. Or at least it seems this way until we recognize The Beast as more than just a tiger making play at humanity, that he is instead Death manifested in flesh and fur. If, then, the tiger is Death given physical form, what does this mean for The Tiger’s Wife?
Just because of this he was forced to play the game of life and death by the barbaric, uncivilized king who never valued human lives. The king's method of trying criminal was that he had two doors in an arena and behind one door there was a hungry, savage tiger and behind the other a woman picked by him. If the accused person opened the door with the tiger, he was eaten. If he opened the door with the lady - he had to marry her with out any complaints. The accused young man had to depend on the princess's decision, who could've saved the young man's life by telling him which door to open.
“That’s too bad Little Miss.

After Valjean reveals his address to Javert, the narrator says, “Javert had the scowl of a tiger half opening the corner of his mouth, and he muttered between his teeth, ‘Take care,’” which shows tiger-like imagery (Hugo 313).
