Instead, it’s as if he sees himself reflected in a body of water, and he knows that below the surface of the water, if he would only reach down, is a moment of truth, even if only the size of a cuttlefish, but he doesn’t want to reach down for fear of distorting his own image (how many of us do?). The third woman is deemed the most delicate, but this is not an unqualified honor, because the narrator characterizes such extreme delicateness as both a virtue and an inconvenience. The tale the film tells thus invokes the West African oral tradition as filtered through an early twentieth-century colonial folktale collection and refracts it through the lens of a late twentieth-century European animator.

It should be no surprise then that as far as I can tell the dawn is the best attested to of all the goddesses of Proto-Indo-European origin. The moral of each tale is given in each case. Of course the “bogey man” has different names, and there are all sorts of embellishments to the story, but if you told the basic story to an African villager, or an Aborigine, or a Mongolian, they would all recognize the tale. One of its most intriguing versions is Mark Morris’s The Hard Nut (1991), which uses Pyotr Il’ich Tchaikovsky’s music to build both a scary and a very ironic piece, with movements and costumes that remind us of the comic book’s sensibility.

There are many fairy tales that become legend. Often legends about ghosts caution that the sins people have committed during their lifetime turn them into restless dead who cannot find peace in the grave. Little Briar-Rose appears to stem from Perrault's Sleeping Beauty, as the Grimms' tale appears to be the only independent German variant. [24] Similarly, the close agreement between the opening of Grimms' version of Little Red Riding Hood and Perrault's tale points to an influence—although Grimms' version adds a different ending (perhaps derived from The Wolf and the Seven Young Kids ). [25] Fairy tales also tend to take on the color of their location, through the choice of motifs, the style in which they are told, and the depiction of character and local color. [26] Originally, adults were the audience of a fairy tale just as often as children. [27] Literary fairy tales appeared in works intended for adults, but in the 19th and 20th centuries the fairy tale came to be associated with children's literature.
