When I read Little Red Riding Hood, it occurred to me that up until this week I really didn’t know the true meaning of the story. In rereading it, especially with an eye to analyzing it, I found it to be quite dark. I realize that we, as mothers and caregivers, tell this story to very young children all the while tickling them at the “scary” parts but really wonder why we tell them this story at all. Our text asks us why the story has survived so long. I don’t have an answer; what do you ...
Weegy: The most vivid symbol in Little Red Riding Hood is the famed red cape and hood. [ Psychoanalytic critics have delighted in analyzing the meaning of the color red because it traditionally symbolizes much that titillates us; from sin and blood to passion and sexuality it seems to implicate the little girl in the story. However, the little girl whose story was first told around the fire or over a drink did not originally wear red. Ironically, the color red was introduced by Perrault, who like the brothers Grimm, tried to convert a sexually loaded tale into a cautionary tale with a clear moral. While the color that has been so suggestive to those with over-active imaginations may not be original to the story, the sexuality was always there. Those who first heard of the girl’s exploits learned of a crafty young girl who does not need a man’s help to escape from the wolf and who is not afraid of her own sexuality. A French version, from the late 1800’s, tells of a girl who performs a strip tease for the wolf’s benefit and proceeds to interview the wolf with a detailed string of questions about the wolf’s own body parts.
