Sample text

Anne Wilson writing about such events in fairy stories claims that, The important point . . here is that the heroine's task is to break the spell which she has brought about. Only she can break it, freeing herself, essentially from it. . The heroine transforms her image as a result of having undergone a profound recognition of reality, where she herself and others in her experience are concerned. 12 Laurence goes another stage further than Wilson's analysis, for Doree' s response- 'I never said he was beautiful' -casts perception back into the flux before it is fixed by another spell of unreality: what we see may be perpetually changing its nature, how we see it certainly is.
