Abstract :

Pre-existing literature, such as original fairy tales, has a significant influence in the birth of modern novels decades later by providing the blue print of the evolving narrative. The connection between the two is manifested in Grimm Brothers’ The Worn-Out Dancing Shoes and its successor, Juliet Marillier’s Wildwood Dancing. The fairy tale tells about twelve princesses who mostly pass their bedtimes to dance all night in an underworld kingdom until one day a clever soldier manages to unravel their secret. Emphasizing as the branch of the preceding fairy tale, the later-born novel presents five sisters who become occasional visitors of the Other Kingdom and must conquer challenges that threaten their magical journey. The two protagonists, the unnamed twelfth princess from the tale and Jena the second sister from the novel, have directed a study which thrives in the sharpness of their sensibility trait while alarming their sisters of upcoming obstacles. These two young women see things critically and try to remind others whether there is misfit in any situation. Assigning Gerard Genette’s Hypertextuality, the character’s sensibility trait is approached within the term of allusion.
