Aschenputtel (Cinderella)

Aschenputtel (Cinderella)

Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper, is a folk tale embodying a myth-element of unjust oppression/triumphant reward. A well-known version of the folk tale was recorded by the German brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the 19th century. Called "Aschenputtel" ("Cinderella" in English translations), this version is much more intense than that of Perrault and Disney, in that Cinderella's father did not die and the step sisters cut off their own toes to fit in the golden slipper. In addition, there is no fairy godmother, but rather help comes from a wishing tree that she planted on her mother's grave.
