Maybe More Than You Want To Know About Snow White

Snow, Glass, Apples: The Story of Snow White by Terri Windling was a little overwhelming for someone like myself, whose knowledge of the tale is limited to a Little Golden Book rendering of the "Disney version." I've never seen the movie.

In reading Windling's article, I was struck by the older woman/younger woman relationship, unpleasant though it may be. I kept wondering if the Snow White figure's fate was to become a middle aged woman who will, in turn, hate a younger woman. And what are we to make of those princes who like their women dead?

The link came from Bookslut, of course.
