The Greeks had the Three Fates. Pythagoras considered three to be the perfect number because it represented everything: the beginning, middle, and end. Some cultures have different powerful numbers, often favoring seven, four and twelve. Against the window-pane: Why the bear knocks on the window and not the door is a mystery. A polite bear also calls on a family at home, by knocking at the door, in Snow White and Rose Red. A great big white bear: The bear is often portrayed as a polar bear in illustrations for the tale although he is not described as such beyond his white fur.
The bear is likely a polar bear since they are native to the Arctic Circle, including Norway where this tale is found.
Ode to the West Wind
With winter approaching in the tale, it is important to note that polar bears do not hibernate. According to the World Wildlife Federation , "polar bears are clearly at the top of the food chain, and they've been known to kill and eat seals, walrus and even beluga whales. Standing on its hind legs, a male polar bear can look an elephant straight in the eye. The polar bear Ursus maritimus is the largest terrestrial carnivore. Adult males can measure more than nine feet in length and weigh between to 1, pounds" WWF.
A bear represents bravery, strength, self-restraint, an evil influence, a problem or difficulty, an obstacle, violence, clumsiness, and solitary life Olderr Many scholars do not consider a tale to be a fairy tale unless it has magical elements in it. A talking bear qualifies this story to be a fairy tale. Will you give me your youngest daughter?
A beast asks for the youngest, beautiful daughter. The implication is that he wants to marry her, although a wedding ceremony is usually not acknowledged or detailed until the end of the tale once the enchantment has been broken. I must first ask my daughter about this: In a feminist analysis of the tale, it is surprising that the father asks the daughter if she will go with the bear.
In times past, parents had the right to arrange a daughter's marriage without her consent, usually for financial gain either for themselves, their daughter, or both. In fairy tales, it is necessary for the heroine to willingly go to live with the animal bridegroom, thus showing her willingness to sacrifice her desires for her family, a sign of virtue.
In Beauty and the Beast , the beast stipulates that Beauty must come to live with him willingly. She said no: In some inaccurate translations, the father refuses the offer first and then the daughter herself decides to go in order to benefit the family without any pressure.
Talked so much to her about the wealth: According to Maria Tatar, "the father's callous alacrity to marry his daughter to a monster reveals the degree to which marriage is connected to economic opportunity in many of the old tales. But it is also the event that sets in motion a plot with a happily-ever-after ending" Tatar , In From the Beast to the Blonde , Marina Warner theorizes that many fairy tales were created to comfort daughters who faced arranged marriages and leaving their homes to live in the unknown household of their in-laws.
While the daughter is reluctant to leave, she is ultimately rewarded with a happy marriage through her honor of her parents and the initial sacrifice of her desires. Washed and mended all her rags, made herself as smart as she could: Most brides would have a dowry of clothing and household items, including linens, to take with them. That the daughter only has rags--not even described as clothing--shows her family's poverty and desperation. The daughter's pride and strength is shown in her personal preparation and care of her few meagre possessions.
Came to fetch her: Here the animal bridegroom carries the daughter away from her home to a location unknown by her family. In Beauty and the Beast , Beauty goes to the Beast's castle with her father. In that tale, unlike this one, there is some comfort that the father knows where she is. She seated herself on his back with her bundle: The image of the daughter riding the bear to her new home is popular with illustrators and is often the iconic representation of this tale. To see several illustrators' visions of the tale, visit the Illustrations of East of the Sun and West of the Moon page.
Are you afraid? She is asked several times throughout the tale if she is afraid, but she never is. Keep tight hold of my fur, and then there is no danger: The daughter is encouraged to literally cling to her spouse who will protect her in her journey away from her childhood and into adulthood. Far, far away: Throughout the story, the heroine travels great distances. She travels a great distance, both in her odyssey to her future home and in her quest for love.
Later in this tale, the four winds will provide the heroine with transportation on her quest. Mountain: The difference in landscape in Scandinavian tales such as this one from the landscapes found in the Grimms' tales reflects the geographical difference between the two countries.

In this tale we have mountains, hills and rivers while in the Grimms' tales we have forests and wooded areas. Both have imposing auras of mystery and power with their natural grandeur. A castle: The enchanted animal bridegroom lives in a castle, similar to the Beast in Beauty and the Beast. Maria Tatar states: "That the castle is in a mountain suggests a kinship between this story and tales about men trapped in wilderness caves and mountain caverns. Kingdoms are often concealed in mountains in myths and folktales. Venus was said to lure her suitors into a palace hidden in a mountain, and Peer Gynt spends time in the hall of the mountain king" Tatar , Brilliantly lighted rooms which shone with gold and silver: Bright light, gold, silver, and food shows the opulence and wealth of the white bear's home.
Lighting was meager and expensive before the harnessing of electricity for power. Only the wealthy could afford bright lighting, which still might be magically enhanced, as well as gold and silver, precious metals limited to households of the higher classes. Gold represents virtue, intelligence, superiority, heaven, worldly wealth, idolatry, revealed truth, marriage, and fruitfulness Olderr Ring this bell, and what she wanted would appear: The magical castle, with its invisible servants, appears in Cupid and Psyche as well as Beauty and the Beast.
Psyche receives the omnipresent service since she is in the home of a god, Cupid, with the divine powers associated with a mythological god.

The other heroines live in a home of enchantment where every physical desire is met. They have moved from poverty to complete luxury. Supposedly they should be content and feel no more want, but they also know there is more to life than physical luxury. A bed: In some inaccurate translations of the tale, there are two beds in the room, one for the woman and one for her mysterious visitor. Since no marriage ceremony has been described, two beds were more acceptable by a larger audience, especially during Victorian times and the first half of the 20th century in which married couples on television slept in separate beds.
Cupid and Psyche are described as married at this point in the story, while this tale is less exact on this point.
Put out the light a man came and lay down beside her: Note that the heroine is not asked to sleep with a beast, but a man. While animal bridegroom stories are abundant around the world, the maiden often finds herself sleeping with a human male in her marriage bed.
Many analysts believe animal bridegroom tales are intended to alleviate a maiden's fears of the marriage bed. While her husband may appear to be a beast before their marriage, she will learn that he is simply a caring man once the marriage is consummated. Cast off the form of a beast: Shapeshifting is a common motif in folklore and found in almost every culture around the world, often attributed to gods and mythical creatures, but sometimes practiced by humans.
The change can either be voluntary or imposed through enchantment, as it is here. The most common types of shapeshifting for humans usually involves changing into a bear or wolf, especially for men. Shapeshifting is often instigated by the rising or setting of the sun or moon. Never saw him: The only stipulation for this heroine and Psyche, her counterpart to retain all of her new wealth and luxury is that she cannot look upon her spouse.
This tale, like Bluebeard , has often been interpreted as a warning against feminine curiosity. She did so wish to go home to her father and mother and brothers and sisters: Homesickness for family is usually the catalyst for the next events in the story. The heroine's inability to be happy in her new home and let go of her old one causes the lovers to be separated and nearly causes the destruction of her lover.
