Confessions of an Ugly Step Sister

Consider Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire as a critique of: 1) the traditional Cinderella story, 2) princess and prince stories generally (Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and similar), and 3) US and European cultures. Your task in this paper is to take one aspect of Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister  (a character type, as is mothers, or suitors, or fathers, a trait, as in capitalism, or beauty as a commodity, or ugliness as a burden, or a theme, as in what, presumably, women or men want, or the presence and need for magic) and trace that aspect through arenas 1-3. By trace, I mean identify and analyze something from Confessions in and across the arenas 1-3. I want 4 or more pages. Make each sentence count. If it adds nothing or little, eliminate it. Check your logic; rely on analysis of the examples provided, as much as possible, and on conjecture, what you believe to be true, as little as possible. Your conclusion should indicate, based on your analysis, the relevance of Confession’s critique.
