Analysis Of The Changes In Folk And Fairy Tales Over Time
Folk and fairy tales were written centuries ago and were not always intended for younger readers. In our project, we are analyzing four stories (Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks, and Snowwhite) to see how they have changed over time to be fit for younger readers. We will analyze these stories by reading the original tales and the adapted tales to compare and contrast how they have changed with society. To analyze, we will begin with no preconceived notions but have in mind the different attributions that are possible. The similarities and differences of these attributions help us to understand how themes and values written in these stories have changed over time.
