The short fictional story of Cinderella contained many elements of fiction. The

elements that will be discussed in this analysis are plot, point of view, theme, images,

and foils.

The plot, or what’s happing, of the fairytale Cinderella centers around an evil

stepmother and two stepsisters who mistreat and take advantage of the only daughter,

Cinderella, of a weak, controllable guy who is entering a second marriage. The author

illustrates the plot by showing how Cinderella is able to overcome adversity and end up

better off than the afore mentioned characters by being humble, beautiful, and helped

with a little magic to live happily ever after with her prince charming.

The point of view of Cinderella is omniscient. The author lets the reader see and

know about all the characters throughout the story. The characters are illustrated and

described so that the reader would know at all times what each person is doing at any

given moment.

The theme of the fairytale seems to portray as long as you are humble, full of faith

and patience, good things await for you. Cinderella used a lot of images and good foils

to help tell the story. The clothing wore, horse and carriage, princes, wooden floors and

fireplaces, fairy and wand, and the setting arouse the mind from the start of the story with

great imagery. The foils were well-defined. The author made excellent contrast of the

characters by going from one extreme to the other between the main characters,

Cinderella, the evil stepmother and stepsisters.

In conclusion, I discussed how plot, point of view, theme, images, and foils were

used in Cinderella to form my analysis.
