[Trapped in the Mirror: Psychosocial Reflections on Mid-Life and the Queen in Snow White.] Commentary.
Labouvie-Vief, Gisela
Human Development, v39 n3 p173-80 May-Jun 1996
Highlights a changing, rather than static view, of the story of "Snow White" by interpreting the story's symbol of the mirror in three roles: guide, trap, and tool of wholeness. Suggests that these interpretations illustrate that developmental processes that entrap individuals may constitute necessary developmental steps and that gains in self-development cannot be achieved without sacrifice.
