“…the nature of Snow White’s relationship with the dwarfs is a center of lively interest. Intellectual writers, from David Barthelme to Günter Grass, have depicted Snow White as the dwarfs’ sex slave while a more simple product, the movie written by the comedian Otto Waalkes, shows men’s overwhelmed response to so much beauty. However original and ‘modern’ all this is supposed to be – an erotic or amorous undercurrent in the relationship between Snow White and her hosts was not unusual in former traditional narratives.”
–Christine Shojaei Kawan, “A Brief Literary History of Snow White”
