How do the makers of "Shrek" use presentational devices to reverse the tradition of fairytales to reveal the ogre as good and the prince as evil?
In traditional fairy tales, ogres are man-eating beasts. The prince usually rescues the princess, they marry and live happily ever after. How do the makers of 'Shrek' use presentational devices to reverse this tradition, to reveal the Ogre as good, and the Prince as evil?
In this essay I am going to analyse the characters of Shrek and Lord Farquaad and write about how the film makers use different interpretations making Shrek as good and the Prince as evil to create an unusual fairytale.
In traditional fairytales they start with an elaborate book which opens up to tell the story, gradually each page of the book turns to reveal the next page. The book starts by telling the reader the background about the fairytale "Once upon a time there lived a lovely princess" with beautifully painted illustrations.
In traditional fairytales such as 'Snow White and the seven dwarfs' the witch casts and evil spell upon Snow White, a handsome prince rescues Snow White and she is freed from the spell
