Little Red Riding Hood
Once upon a time in the middle of the woods was a small cottage, which was the home of a young little girl known to everyone as Little Red Riding Hood. In this legendary story “Little Red Riding Hood” the young girl goes on a journey to give her grandmother some fresh goods, but during this quest she is encountered by the evil wolf. “I’m taking Grandma some cakes. She lives at the end of the path” this quote is what gives the wolf the information of where Little Red Riding Hood’s destination is. The wolf is very comparable to the devil due to his trickery with words to find out activity he is trying to receive and also the way he uses peer pressure to get what he wants out of the young girl. Like the Devil or Satan when trying to conquer a human being’s soul, the wolf tries to get the girl to come close enough for him to eat. With Little Red Riding Hood telling the wolf where she is heading the wolf understands that the woods are not the place to make his attack, so he goes off to Little Red Riding Hood’s home before she does. There the wolf comes across Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother. To add more to his tricks he eats the grandmother to grab a clever disguise for when the young girl arrives. At the time of her arrival she is presented with the deception that the wolf is the grandmother and at this point they have the famous conversation: “Grandmother, what big ears you have!” she asks. “All the better to hear you with,” the wolf replies. “Grandmother, what big eyes you have!” she asks. “All the better to see you with,” the wolf replies. “Grandmother, what big hands you have!” she asks. “All the better to hold you with,” the wolf replies. “But grandmother, what big teeth you have!” she asks. “All the better to eat you with,” the wolf replies, and leaps out of the bed and swallows Little Red Riding Hood. Obviously the disguise did not completely deceive Little Red Riding Hood, but the wolf attempts to trick her in many different ways finally losing his patience and decides to just eat her. The wolf’s choice will lead to his downfall as a hunter nearby hears the wolf’s snoring in sleep and kills the wolf. The hunter eventually will cut the wolf’s stomach to save Little Red Riding Hood and Grandmother. Good seems to always triumph over evil as wars with the sinful continue throughout humanity’s lifetime.
