The view point of an author can be determined easily by comparing works of the same basic plots and characters Also by contrasting the same two works is equally as important Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault and Angela Carters The Company of Wolves are perfect examples The writers purpose characterization and readability shows one of many ways of pinpointing the authors bias Clearly Carter and Perrault show a bias with the characters in their stories Carters main character being a female whom is clever strong and an in-depth thinker who is always thinking ahead This shows that the author was probably writing during the womens movement where women began entering the work place and becoming more than mere objects or at home mothers On the other hand Perraults view of a young innocent child shows with the outcome that one should learn their lesson from this story This was typical prior to the modern age when stories were lessons learned There were religious implications noted in Carters work where Perrault did not For example she is dressed and ready and it is Christmas Eve 820 and another example you must run as if the Devil is after you820 Yet another phrase that relates to the Devil states They say theres an ointment the Devil gives you that turns you into a wolf the minute that you rub it on820 Note that the passages all came from the same page a clever tactic used by Carter to keep a strong theme in certain parts of the story This concept of referring to religion is somewhat ironic because most modern day writings that I have read really do not imply religion events Granted Christmas is wintertime and the author could be referring to it as a description of the setting Also I found the Grandmother lives in a village in Perraults story It was of the times to have small villages everywhere rather than today
