Cinderella usually identifies with the heroine of a tragic life who expects the love of a prince and with the moral idea that good always triumphs over evil. It is a character whose origins go back to classical antiquity and which has a certain symbology that we can find in female archetypes of such important authors as Novalis, Tieck or E.T.A. Hoffmann. This volume collects the two most important versions of this history of oral tradition: that of Charles Perrault, written in 1697, and that of the Brothers Grimm, from the year 1812. Both stories, although in essence narrate the same story, have very different details , which is not strange since each of them is influenced by its historical context.
