The only problem is there is more to Arailt than meets the eye - much more! In The Three Riddles , the elves, they say, know the secrets of events - but the queen has no time for superstitions. As her kingdom crumbles, she longs for her lost love, but can she risk her country on a whim? Finally in The People in the Garden , strange things are happening in the grounds of Count and Countess Malinovsky's Gothic manor house.
Local people tell of fairies, goblins and unnameable creatures, and there are stories about a ghostly girl with an uncanny resemblance to the decadent couple's beautiful servant Katia. It's got everything in it: passion, hot sex, love, desire, evil beings and a moral. Hazel is just your average girl who gets a chance at true love but blows it by getting too wrapped up in superficial things and not keeping her word.
In this case the trio is used to describe the three attempts on Snow White's life. Girardot sees these events a full stage of Snow White's life. In the Disney version, the queen only attempts to poison Snow White once, with the apple. Intended for a younger audience than the Grimm's version, Disney limited the number of death attempts. The number three is seen in the beginning of the Grimm's version; "three drops of blood fell into the snow" Grimm.
The drops of blood represent the beginning or birth of Snow White. The number three is important because it is the number most often linked with sexual desires in the unconscious Girardot. Bettelheim mentions a version of Snow White that begins with the repeated imagery of groups of three objects: three mounds of white snow, three holes full of blood, and three black ravens.

It is the appearance of those objects that foreshadows the man wanting a child. Immediately after the items in groups of three are seen Snow White appears. Since the number three represents sex, Snow White is the child outcome of that Bettelheim.
If the blood represents menstruation and the number three represents sex, than it makes sense that Snow White would follow three drops of blood, or come from the repeated imagery of groups of three items. Snow White's conception and her mother's pregnancy is symbolized by the drops of blood and the sexual implications are left only to the reader's imagination. In the Disney version, the drops of blood are completely left out and the story starts with Snow White already a child Disney. Maria Tatar notes that Disney received complaints about the version of Snow White scaring children.
It seems that our current society would not approve of the conception of Snow White, symbolic or not, being included in the movie. According to Girardot, the birth mother's death is part of the prologue and building problem before the phase of separation occurs. Snow White is created by her mother, who the reader does not know, and is prepared to start life where her mother ended. This important contrast at the beginning of Snow White illustrates the theme of life cycle and maturity.
Also, the removal of the birth mother makes it possible for storytellers to introduce the archetype of the evil stepmother, an important character in the story. Soon after the new queen, Snow White's stepmother, is introduced into the story, her magic mirror is brought into it. The stepmother constantly checks her beauty in the mirror and asks the mirror "who in this land is the fairest of all? A mirror conventionally symbolizes one's captured imagination, self-realization, or one's own inner voice Protas.
They were first created to pattern after nature.
Mirrors were fashioned to reproduce the same kind of reflection a lake or another still body of water produces on a clear day. Mirrors were created so people have a clear frontal view of themselves. Mirrors allow people to see the way others view them.

Mirrors can represent the way a person views and evaluates him or herself Prostas. They are also considered to embody a person's soul and therefore cannot lie to him or her. In the Grimm's version of "Snow White," the mirror is a magical instrument owned by the evil queen that symbolizes the absent king's voice and opinions. The queen, after a few years of marriage, can predict the King's thoughts and actions. She has versions of his feelings in her mind which is represented by her magical mirror: " The woman has internalized the King's rule: his voice resides now in her own mirror, her own mind" Gilbert The mirror provides a patriarchal voice for the queen and her stepdaughter.
It also illustrates the queen's anxieties about Snow White and her jealousy about Snow White's looks. Bettelheim concludes that "the story of Snow White warns of the evil consequences of narcissism for both parent and child" The narcissism of the queen is clearly seen in her obsession with the answers of her magic mirror. In the Grimm's version, the father's voice is pivotal in the stepmother- daughter relationship.
The Grimm brothers changed the tale of Snow White, from earlier versions they had printed, in to make the Snow White's stepmother, not mother, the evil being Warner The evil stepmother is found to be more believable than an evil mother and more acceptable by children. The stepmother was kept as the evil character in most of the versions following the Grimms' change. Bettelheim has a different interpretation of the significance of the mirror. He believes the mirror speaks the voice of Snow White. As the child is young she thinks her mother, or in this case her stepmother, is the most beautiful but as the child grows she begins to see herself as more beautiful Bettelheim The problem with his interpretation is that a child thinking she is more beautiful than her stepmother does not seem like enough motivation for her stepmother to kill her.
The Disney version clearly does not take this interpretation; in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs the mirror instructs the queen to kill Snow White to fix her problem Disney. In the Disney version of "Snow White," the mirror is still used to hold the voice of the absent patriarchal figure, but it now represents the queen's mind and fractured psyche. The queen has internalized the king's voice, which is now portrayed along with the queen's thoughts in her magic mirror. The Disney movie adds a face to the mirror to more clearly show that it represents a person.
The face is a mask so the viewer cannot tell if it is male or female because it is both, but the voice is masculine as it is the voice of the king.
The mirror in this version not only represents the absent King's judgments, but also represents part of the queen's soul. The queen feels that she must be the most important person to her husband and is so jealous that her husband may care about Snow White. She also wants to be the fairest one in all the land and has desires to kill anyone who threatens that. Jack Zipes notes that messages of elitism are clear in almost all of Disney's productions, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Now when the mirror is asked, " Who is the fairest one of all," it not only replies with either the queen or Snow White, but it also scolds and gives orders to the queen.
The mirror tells the queen not to let Snow White live and encourages her to find and kill Snow White Disney. She asks the trout for reassurance, in the same manner the stepmother in the Grimm's version asks the mirror. The queen is motivated to send her hunter out in to the woods to kill Snow White and bring back her liver and lungs as proof. The hunter is unable to kill Snow White, as he is taken by her beauty and innocent pleas, and instead tells her to run Grimm.
Bettelheim suggests that the hunter is an unconscious representation of the father since he is first taken by the queen's commands but then succumbs to the child What hunter, except for a father, would go against the queen's will?

Bettelheim's reasoning is that hunting was a male aristocratic privilege, and hunters lend themselves easily to projections due to children's' animal phobias Since he seeks out, tracks down, and defeats what are viewed as lower aspects of man- the wolf- the hunter is an eminently protective figure who can and does save us from the dangers of our violent emotions and those of others" Bettelheim In the Grimm's tale, the hunter kills a boar and feeds the liver and lungs of the boar to the queen.
The queen eats the organs thinking she is eating her stepdaughter Grimm. The queen, jealous of Snow White's beauty, wanted to incorporate Snow White's attractiveness, as symbolized by her internal organs" Bettelheim Girardot's analysis of the event is similar; he believes that the cannabilistic ingestion is associated with the absorption of power This symbolic action further drives the point that the queen is desperate to gain Snow White's beauty and possibly therefore gaining attention from her husband.
In our current Disney version, the queen keeps Snow White organs in a box Disney. The scene changes because Disney's intended audience is younger than the Grimm's intended audience and the image of cannibalism is not acceptable in a children's movie. The queen contains Snow White's organs in her own lock box. The box can be seen as the queen's attempt to control Snow White's organs and gain the beauty that comes with them. Next, in the Grimm's version, Snow White finds the house of the dwarfs and rests there Grimm.
For Giradot, this marks the beginning of the liminal period The dwarfs, according to Girardot, are the teachers that are necessary to have a successful initiation They teach her adult tasks, such as cleaning and cooking, which encourage independence.

The dwarfs warn Snow White of impeding danger that her stepmother brings. Jack Zipes mentions the Protestant ethics being part of the moral taught in Snow White. The ethics he includes are industriousness, honesty, cleanliness, diligence, virtuousness, and male supremacy The dwarfs teach Snow White these values. Snow White is told by the dwarfs that she can seek solace in their house as long as she cleans and cooks and does various other chores Grimm.

In the Disney version, unlike Grimm's tale, the dwarfs are seen as messy and child-like, further emphasizing the need for someone to keep order Disney; Grimm. The change in the manner of the dwarfs in the Disney movie makes the dwarfs more child-like. Disney's intended audience, young children, is more likely to relate to the child-like dwarfs then the more work-conscious dwarfs found in the Grimm's version of the tale. The dwarfs are good people to teach Snow White because, as Bettelheim points out, dwarfs value hard work Bettelheim goes on to propose that the dwarfs suggest phallic connotations and they parallel the prepubertal child.
They have no desire to change and they do not understand the pressures that make it hard for Snow White to resist her evil stepmother In the Grimm's story, the replication of the number seven mirrors the replication of three in the story of Goldilocks and three bears- seven plates, seven chairs, and seven beds. The number seven has a long history in fairy tales, myths, and literature in general.
There are numerous examples of the number seven found in the old testament Protas. Seven is symbolically important. It is the number of days in a week, based on the planets orbital times.
