So I just realized that I really need to get on top of things with these posts. I haven’t been keeping up. At first I was going to write about violence in “Fitcher’s Bird” and relate it to nationalism somehow, but I didn’t feel like I had enough substance behind it and resources to back it up, so I’ve changed my topic to women and how the “character of the sexes” and stereotypes at the time, portrayed women as dependent, strictly emotional, and weak. In “Fitcher’s Bird,” the first two sisters seem to fit in nicely to these stereotypes. However, the third sister is clever, independent, and brave. I think this one outstanding woman could represent a cry of defiance against the typical view of women at the time, and the fact that the Grimm’s collected their stories from women storytellers is very important. Is this topic at all debatable? I might be just stating an idea that is obvious to readers(i had that problem last time w/ my rough draft).
