“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” definition
A fairy tale in the Grimm collection, about a beautiful young princess whose jealous stepmother tries to kill her. She avoids being killed and hides in a forest cottage occupied by dwarfs. The stepmother finds out where Snow White is, visits her in disguise, and gives her a poisoned apple; Snow White eats it and falls into a deathlike sleep. When a prince kisses her, she awakens from her sleep, and he marries her.
Note: The wicked stepmother consults a magical mirror several times throughout the story, often asking it, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”
Note: In the 1930s, Walt Disney made a very popular animated film adaptation of the story of Snow White.
