2. Character: What is the ideal character for exploring the themes and issues most often found in Fairy Tales? Does the protagonist need to be a hero? Does making the lead an adolescent, a woman, a prince or a cat have any bearing on the success of a story? Compare two (2) characters that are present in the two texts you chose for this assignment. Decide if the characters are flat or round. Describe how these characters influence the story or the theme of the story. Which character is the reader supposed to identify with and what effect does this have? Please use specific examples from texts or films we have looked at this semester to illustrate the points you raise in your discussion.
