English 112 Participation Questions Two: The Selected Fairy Tales Directions: After reading the two fairy tales, answer each question to the best of your ability. You may use your text and communicate with others in class as you develop your answers. To receive full credit, each question must be answered thoroughly and meaningfully, with a genuine attempt to analyze the text’s complexity. Please answer in the space beneath each question using a different font color than black so that your answer is readily discernible. Then submit your file for grading using the submit button. Note: Whether or not we cover “Hansel and Gretel” in class is a function of available time. I include it here and in the readings, though we may not get to it in class discussion. Explain these four significant and meaningful differences in the plot of “Little Red Cap” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” noting why you think the change was made and how it affects the meaning of the story. The change from a riding hood to a riding cap. The change in the amount of advice the mothers gives in LRRH and LRC. The change in what goodies the girls take to grandmother? The change in the location of the grandmother’s houses relative to the woods. Make a list of all the symbolic association you can think of for each of the following items in the story: The color red The cake or bread and wine little red takes to grandmother The forest The path The cap/hood little red wears (aside from the color) The flowers along the path in the woods that little red picks Men, except for the Wolf, are notably absent in “Little Red Riding Hood.” Why that absence? Little Red Riding Hood and Little Red Cap acquire their namesake head wear from their grandmother instead of their mother. Why this plot point? In her journey through the woods, Little Red Riding Hood “met with” a wolf who challenges her to a race to her grandmother’s house: One the race is agreed on, the wolf hurries to grandmother’s, but Little Red Riding Hood takes her time to pursue nuts, flowers, and butterflies. Why these three items and why does she agree to a race then dawdle along the way? Upon arrival at her grandmother’s house, Little Red Riding Hood should expect to meet the wolf (who, after all was racing her there while she dawdled along the way). Why then does she seem to think the wolf is not there? Upon the wolf’s request that Little Red Riding Hood get into bed with her, Little Red removes all of her clothing before getting into bed with the wolf who is posing as her grandmother. Why does she remove her clothes, including, obviously, her little red riding hood? Once in bed with the wolf, Little Red Riding Hood and the wolf engage in a question an answer game. In each question, Little Red focuses on how “big” all of “grandmother’s” features are, why this emphasis on size? Little Red Cap is taking a bottle of wine to her sick and weak grandmother, and when the wolf encounters her, we find she is carrying the bottle of wine under her apron. Why is she carrying it there? Little Red Cap’s explains to the wolf that her grandmother’s “house is [a] good quarter hour from here in the woods, under the three large oak trees. There’s a hedge of hazel bushes there. You must know the place.” Why these details of about the three oaks and the hazel hedge as well as the wolf’s presumptive knowledge of it? Little Red Cap “met with” a wolf in the woods who urges her to leave the path and explore the forest. Upon heeding the wolf’s advice the narrator tells us that she “opened her eyes.” What is the significance of this odd fact (implying she did not have her eyes open prior to her encounter with the wolf)? Little Red Cap and her grandmother, unlike Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother are saved by a huntsman. What might this huntsman represent and what is the significance of his cutting them out of the wolf’s belly to save them? Why does Hansel and Gretel’s step-mother advocated abandoning the children in the forest to prevent the whole family starving to death? Is her point of view reasonable or believable? Why do the Grimm’s make the children’s nemesis in the woods w witch, rather than some other form of threat or villain? What is the last obstacle the children face, and why that obstacle and how they overcome it?
