I did eventually end up writing about Donkeyskin. I hope that my argument was detailed enough, but I guess I’ll find out at my conference tomorrow.
Okay I have definitely finished writing my essay and that makes me happy. I hope it makes sense and that others can understand what I mean. I wrote about Lin Lan and how Beauty is not really a nice person, she has a dark side…See you all later and I’m sure we will be reading [...]
I am not sure what I want to write about yet, but the story I found most interesting was Donkeyskin. I enjoyed that version the best and it drew me in more than the others. I thought the ring test was also a interesting twist on the slipper test. It seemed more magical to me [...]
I am not yet exactly sure which story I am going to choose to cover on the first essay of the class on Cinderella, but I do have a few favorite versions. I am most interested in Perrault’s “Donkeyskin”, Lin Lan’s “Cinderella”, and “The Princess in the Suit of Leather”.
Well I am unsure about which Cinderella I want to write about. I was thinking of doing the catskin one, but now I am not sure since the essay is a more close reading and so it would be harder for me to pick one thing or subject to write about when there are so [...]

I found it interesting (and unfair!) that in them, the father is forgiven for his incestuous desires, and even, in the case of The Princess in the Suit of Leather absolved [...]
At the moment, I am still speculating on which version of Cinderella I will choose to analyze for the first essay assignment. I am resorting to reading the many different versions of the story that are on a webpage to ensure that there is nothing else that may strike my imagination as ripe for commenting [...]
As of now, I still haven’t decided on which version of Cinderellas I will use. I find all the versions very interesting, although I wouldn’t think some of the stories under the “Cinderella” category. But maybe it’s just me. I am thinking of using “Catskin” or “The Princess in the Suit of Leather”, but I [...]
I am not definitely sure what Cinderella story I want to write about, but right now, I’m thinking that I am going to write about the Chinese version because that one seems almost like the foundation of the Cinderella stories. It was the first story I read in the group of stories, and for some [...]
I was thinking of writing my essay about donkeyskin, though I wanted to look at more versions before I definitely decided on it.
