CapriUni BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales (228* d) RE: BS: CapriUni's blog: disability in folktales 28 Sep 11


Hey, wow. You're right, that is a changeling story... (I've never actually read Hunchback of Notre Dame -- only saw an early silent film version in a film appreciation course I took in high school).

And boy! isn't it full of Racism fail along with ableism fail? Esmerelda is seen as a monster, and worthy of the gallows, as long as she's believed to be one of the outcasts, and an inferior race. But as soon as it's proven that she's really born to a "proper" European race, and upper class, then all of a sudden, she's the worthy victim and heroine.

Tsk. *Shakes head.*
