Tales of old age, godfather tales, and water of life tales Sometimes personification of Death Trying to avoid or cheat death Connections between the above tales and tales from last week (soldier tales and monster births)  Avoiding death (soldier tales ex. Animals flee to woods or monster births ex. Parents want to get rid of or kill the monsters  Society tries to get rid of people with deformities or of old age  They did their part but then have no use of them (this idea ties to the soldier tales)  they want to show that they still have use left in them In most tales, the elderly must empower themselves. (ex. Old Sultan, The Bremen Town Musicians) How is this like other underdog tales we have examined? Bring examples from previous tales. Soldiers in soldier tales are underdogs as well They are both seen as no longer useful and they want to fit in They sometimes have to use trickery and be cunning to prove they can still be useful These characters are seen as a burden because they use resources and don’t supply anything in return  children and the elderly are seen as similar (on the margins of society, outsiders, weak, have to prove themselves, they identify with each other)  in The Old Man and his Grandson, the boy saves the grandfather from injustice for understanding that something was wrong and speaking up  In The Old Beggar Woman, the Grimms added some interjection because the little boy just let the old woman burn and they thought that was wrong  Differences between Old Sultan and The Bremen Town Musicians  Old Sultan- the actual disabilities help him win in the end, then live with family where they had been before  The Bremen Town Musicians- the disabilities didn’t help them to win, lived secluded in woods withdrawn from society
