The story of Cinderella is considered a rise tale. This means that the tale demonstrates a motive of “rags to riches through magic and marriage”. This simply means that any person can be saved from their troubles without any effort at all. We all know that people cannot be saved from their problems by counting on magic and marriage.
In the real world everyone would agree that with hard work you could be successful. Though, this motif was designed to persuade young girls that if they marry they will be successful. At the same time the motif teaches young men that they need to be successful in order to marry.In todays society we can only hope for the fairy tale life and be saved from our troubles. If fairy tales were real, no man would ever attend college or try to get a job because they believe in fantasies. If fantasies and magic did exist, everyone would be happier and life would be a lot easier, yet because of the false tales such as Cinderella that the public views as a story it may make some people believe in fate rather than choice. Even though rags to riches may be an actual stories such as Tyler Perry’s life or the life of Biggie Smalls where they grew up poor, but with hard work and determination, they are able to achieve their respective dreams. But if they would have believed in fairy tales and fate rather than choice and free will, they probably would have stayed poor their whole life and not achieved their dreams.
