In this essay, I am going to analyse the characters of Shrek and Lord Farquaad, and write about how the film makers use different presentational devices to create an unusual fairy.
In traditional fairy tales Ogres and giants are nasty to other people and are man eating beasts. The princess is normally is trapped in a tall castle and the prince has to defeat a creature to reach her. When he rescues her they share their first kiss and fall deeply in love. The story ends with them marrying and living happily ever after.
In the story of Jack and the beanstalk the giant lives at the top of a beanstalk. Jack climbs the beanstalk to steal some gold because he and his mother do not own much money. The giant lives in a big house with lots of money and as much food he needs. The giant is very nasty to all humans. When he sees Jack he chases him down the beanstalk as he wants to eat him for his dinner. The giant does not give up chasing him because he is also very greedy.
