Week #1: The Lady, or the Tiger?
This is a wonderful story, when you begin to read you cannot imagine how cruel that king can be, when you are in the middle you ask to yourself how can that kind of person so barbaric could exist, you can also think that everything is going to be different at the end of the story and everything is going to be perfect and beautiful like a fantastic story, because the princess is part of the story from that point and forward, but the end is GREAT. It is something that you have to assume but is obvious, even when you don’t want that to happen.
This story shows us the dark side of people, and how only one person, in that case the semi barbaric king, can decide in the worst way the life of another person, without the possibility that this person can prove his innocent or somebody can prove his guilty. But not only that, there is something worse, many people are part of that terrible shows, because the way that the king prepared that “trial”, looks like a real and unpleasant shows, even the king hired mourners for the tragic end, and all of those people that were part of it, were enjoying and waiting anxious the end, no matters what will happen with the accused person the crowd was excited waiting to the end to cheer for the wedding or mourn for the death of someone that maybe was innocent, as that young man.
The end you can read between the lines, is almost written, although it is not what we wanted. The perfect ending will be that the lady was in the right door, because the princess prefers to keep him safe even when she can´t marry or stay with him instead that the left door that will be the tiger´s door and see how the tiger tore him to pieces. A most romantic end will be that the princess shows him the tiger´s door and when the tiger came out through the door she had jumped into the arena to die with her lover. But unfortunately I think that this tale has a tragic end. The princess has a semi-barbaric soul, she hated the maiden, she was jealous, angry, and furious, all of those feelings mixed would determinate the fate of her lover. So she decided the door that her lover deserved according to her, the tiger´s door, but for him we don´t know if it was the wrong or right door, maybe he knew what the princess wanted and he agreed with the decision because he also preferred to died instead to lived far away from her. Anyway, the end does not matter, the story tells us how much cruelty can be in one person and how the people can change their attitude depending on the situation.
