Frog prince vs. cupid and psyche

In the story of Cupid and psyche, the youngest Princess is more beautiful than Venus herself.( Ps, This

story is based off of Greek mythology).Venus gets so jealous and decides to punish psyche and sends

her son cupid to destroy the girls beauty with bitter waters from a fountain. But when cupid comes to do

the deed he was so distracted by her beauty that he accidently stabbed himself with his own arrow. Then

she is banished to marry a monstrous creature who in reality is a beautiful god. so she never sees her

husband and decides shes lonely and wants to see her sisters. Her sisters come to visit and want her to

kill her husband and free herself cause they think hes a monster. So when psyche tries he wakes up

catches her and decides he should leave her as punishment. Psyche feels empty without her husband and 

wants to find him. So through a series of events she becomes immortal and has a child with cupid. So in

this story psyche has no problem marrying a so called monster she has accepted her fate. Unlike in frog

prince where they never fully say she has to marry the frog. Its implied and also the princess doesn’t want

to marry the frog prince.Psyche’s so beautiful and everyone praises her because of it but she cannot find

love. So she says she will marry the monster.

Snow white comparison

Personally I like the Disney version of Snow white because of the innocence that it incorporates  Its been

apart of my childhood so its always going to be my favorite. And while the Grimm version does have a twist

to it , its a little graphic and I wasn’t expecting it when I read it. I like the fact that they put a lot of variety

into the ways snow white died if that sounds right.However they killed the queen in the end and that’s a

little much. When i was little i never really payed attention to the fact that the princess didn’t have a father

but the dwarfs played father figures. The queen wanted to eat snow whites heart and liver in order to absorb

her beauty. The different versions of snow white that I have read have never been as graphic as the

Brothers Grimm. I love how simple and funny the dwarfs are in the disney movie. I love the colors the

music and the lights in the disney version Image
