Snow White

"Snow White" is a Bavarian fairy tale known across much of Europe. The best known is the Bavarian version collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 as German: Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (or Dwarves). The Bavarian version features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the seven dwarfs, who were first given individual names in the Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1912) and then given different names in Walt Disney's 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Grimm story, which is commonly referred to as "Snow White", should not be confused with the story of "Snow White and Rose Red", another fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm (in German "SchneeweiƟchen", rather than "Schneewittchen").

In the Aarne-Thompson folklore classification, tales of this kind are grouped together as type 709, Snow White. Others of this kind include "Bella Venezia", "Myrsina", "Nourie Hadig" and "Gold-Tree and Silver-Tree".

On June 28, 1987, Snow White received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for her role in Disney's first animated feature-length film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

    Meanwhile Snow White held court,
    rolling her china-blue doll eyes open and shut
    and sometimes referring to her mirror
    as women do.
