Trapped in the Mirror: Psychosocial Reflections on Mid-Life and the Queen in Snow White.
Strayer, Janet
Human Development, v39 n3 p155-72 May-Jun 1996
Uses the story of "Snow White" to examine issues regarding self and midlife development, especially for women. Considers issues of beauty, image, power, generativity, intimacy, identity, and integration. Suggests that this story illustrates a major midlife task, that of coming to terms with earlier images of oneself in order to develop a more realistic sense of self. (BC)
