The Phylogeny of Little Red Riding Hood

The comments Time spent on nothing Thanks, Chanse, for your input. I am always fascinated with all the possibilities for an interpretation of seemingly a simple fairy tale. Great interpretations here. A lot adds to the present theme I'm about to explain. See, the story is an esoteric analogy of what's known as "the hero's journey" symbolized in many kid's stories. Back in medieval times the "common man" was prohibited from owning books, or writing them. The privelage had to be earned via status with the Royals and the like. Nothing evil about it, despite the propaganda, which continues to this day, that the Church was spreading.

These groups went secret to avoid the cruel, cold, and wicked punishments of the time. These people saw the holes in the accepted teachings and saw them as crystal-clear analogies and metaphors. The latter teaching the Golden Path that can, and needs to, be taken by any individual psychologically willing and strong enough to take on the journey toward spiritual initiation.

Aka, insight of the discerning mind, or third eye. Long story short, Little Red Ridinghood symbolizes the sacred feminine within "Man," both male and female, also known as Wisdom. The wilderness is the same metaphor that's spoke of in Scripture. Yeshuah had to travel through it, proverbially, before his ascension. This and other sayings of Scripture is how, and why, members of Mystery Schools saw Yeshuah as nothing more than a mere mortal man whom either played the archetypal role of the Universal and Cosmic Christos, or was a messenger destined to spread the Esoteric Truth to any who had the open mindedness and discipline to listen.

The wolf represents Sawtawn--meaning "adversary"-- or the ego which enslaves the Mind and Spirit of the common person. Grandma is the Goddess "above", or the Macrocosmic Feminine. The latter being the intangible Truth behind the physical veil of illusion.

So in short, the story speaks of the corruption of the Church in keeping the spiritual truth of our divinity as the greatest symbol of the cosmos as a whole holy , via archetype. In the beginning was the word Morpheus's line, in The Matrix, to Neo comes to mind. It disquises itself as the "Grand Mother" by its patriarchal motives and demonizing of women. It wants to enslave or control the minds of the masses, and consume it's souls Lol, resistance is supposedly futile.

In the end the huntsman with the double edged axe, the latter also symbolized as a sword in myths, saves the day via being "The Father. Hope this helps. Richard Well, it can be a cautionary tale, but it can also have a comforting effect with resurrection. This was so interesting - you clearly have a deep interest and extensive knowledge of fairy tales :. This was fascinating.

I always thought of red riding hood as a cautionary tale so the not so happy ending makes more sense to me. You did a great job of exploring many options. I would add that there are similarities to the story of Persephone. So the time spent in the wolf's stomach is sort of like Persephone's time in Hades. The wine would tie into that, too, since wine is "developed", transformed, and refers to Spirit, the transpersonal self.

Granny and wolf are undistinguishable by LRRH because the adolescent descent into adult sexuality looks frightening, and can "devour" us for a time, but in the end it is all a sacred design for the development of human maturity or wisdom. You don't get much wisdom if you don't explore the opposite sex! That's the alchemical perspective anyway! So there are a few of my thoughts on the symbolism. What a treasury of knowledge you have and have researched your subject thoroughly for this obvious labor of love, you have fascinated me!!!

I would like to think the story is just a fairy tale, but since not everyone could read and write in those times, we have to know that any of the authors were very intelligent people. The various symbols tell their own story about the time of the story's origin and authors.

Thanks for the detailed background. Felicitas: Thee are many versions with happy endings for the wolf, including the Perrault's mentioned above. I have also seen the ones where wolf stands for his reputation and denies to attack anybody.

And there are of course variants with happy endings for all characters. But they don't bring the same message.

It seems the Red Riding Hood with some kind of warning is the strongest of all. Again, you've offered so many symbolic aspects that I never thought of before. I doubt if there's a child anywhere who hasn't heard at least one of the versions. Still, I have respect for the wolf in today's society.

I would like to see a fairy tale that redeems the wolf's reputation. Don't know about likes and other stuff. It's a big system. Bugs are probably all around Let's hope they don't spread anything serious. It's amazing how interpretations can be so different with different people and times - the Red Riding Hood of my childhood was the sanitized version. I noticed Tipi's note about disappearing likes - I've experienced the same thing upon occasion recently, and it's been a while since polls or quizzes registered for me I'm so glad I peeked back in, I'm sure I blessed this but have been noticing some likes and blessing have disappeared in a glitch along the way Not really.

You just about covered every possible angle. Like ow you dig into the back story and give deeper explanations. You really took this story to levels I had never considered, even as a horny teenager. Red Riding Hood is a favorite in the US. I recently saw a movie titled Red Riding Hood that had the wolf as a werewolf.

That is pretty much how I always saw the wolf since my teenage years. Great lens. I have a couple of Squidoo friends who live in Slovinia, and would like to be able to count you as a friend also. I hope to see you around Tolovaj. I loved this story as a child. I remember dressing up as Red Riding Hood for Halloween.

Great information here and photos. Another fairy tale with possible meanings far beyond the face value I took it with as it was red to me or told as a child. I remember being able to visualize it as the story moved along It seems the classic fairy tale writers hid a lot of meanings into their stories, perhaps to give the great minds something to think about as they read these "harmless" children's stories to their little ones.

I had never heard of Red and Grandma being cut out of the wolf's stomach and it seems everyone but the wolf lived happily ever after. Fascinatingly done! I really learned a lot here. I love all the different sides you showed of this story. Thanks for teaching me new things about Red Riding Hood. Thank you for sharing, great lens. I appreciate it. I did not know there were different versions of this story. I like your explorations of the origins of these stories. This tale super popular among children, I do enjoy watching red riding hood cartoon in various version, but I don't read it coz I don't have the book :.

Warning: this was a summary with the official happy ending! What Is Different in Perrault's Version? Well, this is not all. In the beginning, of Perrault's story mother gives a daughter a basket and send her to a grandmother with words: "Do not talk to strangers! Messages of both fairy tales differ. Perrault warns us not to trust strangers and brothers Grimm emphasize how important is to stay on the trail.

The content of the basket is not the same in both cases. Psychoanalysts were especially excited over a bottle of wine added by William Grimm. It supposes to have strong symbolic meaning and we will deal with that view later. Perrault's Red Riding Hood takes her clothes off and gets into bed with the wolf.
