I have a short story analysis task to submit.

In writing this analysis, please consider how the short story functions as a whole. Please avoid merely describing the plot and, instead, analyse how the text functions as a rewriting of a traditional fairy tale.

Alongside this, your analysis should contain evidence of close reading as you zoom in to focus on some of the textual details of the story. Crucially, this includes the way in which the text is written: the choice of language; the structure of sentences; the use of imagery; and so on.
